MADISON, Wis. — Bernie Sanders is heading back to Wisconsin for the first time since he won the state’s presidential primary in April.
Sanders will hold rallies in Madison and Green Bay Wednesday on behalf of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and will be encouraging early voting in Wisconsin in both the presidential and Senate races.
Democratic Senate candidate Russ Feingold plans to join Sanders at the Madison event. The Green Bay rally is in the open 8th Congressional District, where Democrat Tom Nelson is running against Republican Mike Gallagher.
That congressional race in northeast Wisconsin and Feingold’s rematch with Republican incumbent Ron Johnson are the two hottest Wisconsin contests this year.
