MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, Democrat Hillary Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine, as well as Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders are all headed to Wisconsin in the waning days of the election.

Millions of dollars are pouring into Wisconsin from both sides as Democrat Russ Feingold tries to knock off Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson. Johnson has trailed in polls the entire race, but on Friday a Democratic super PAC announced it was putting $2 million into the race to give Feingold a late surge.

Kaine's visit to Wisconsin is also designed to give Feingold a boost. Kaine was campaigning in Appleton and Madison on Tuesday and Feingold was expected to join him for at least one of the stops.

Trump was returning to Wisconsin on Tuesday as well for a rally in Eau Claire.

Bernie Sanders will appear at a get out the vote rally for Clinton and Feingold Wednesday, November 2 at Turner Hall. The event is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.
