Former President Donald Trump is holding a Save America Rally in Waukesha, Wisconsin at 7 p.m. CDT. He will speak in support of Tim Michels, who is running for governor of the state.
Michels received the former president’s endorsement in June, and he will face Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch in the Republican gubernatorial primary, to be held on August 9. Kleefisch has the backing of former Vice President Mike Pence, making this race echoed in the recent Arizona gubernatorial primary, where the former running mates also supported several candidates.
As with several primary races this year, this one has been interpreted as part of a “proxy war” between Trump and the Republican establishment to shape the party’s future. As of Wednesday, Trump’s approval record stands at 172-10.
