Donald Trump appealed Tuesday to Wisconsin voters who might be frustrated with their decision to vote early for Hillary Clinton following new FBI revelations about the Democratic presidential nominee. He urged them to recast their ballots for him instead, as Wisconsin is one of the few state that allows people to do so.
"An important public service announcement: There's a lot of things that have happened over the last few days. This is a message with any Democratic voters who have already casted their ballots for Hillary Clinton and who are having a bad case of buyer's remorse," the Republican presidential nominee said during a campaign event in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. "In other words — you want to change your vote."
This latest pitch comes as Trump is campaigning in traditionally Democratic-voting states, seeking to capitalize on the FBI's renewed investigation into Clinton's emails. Wisconsin, however, has not been awarded to the Republican presidential candidate since before 1984.
"Wisconsin is one of several states where you can change your early ballot if you think you've made a mistake. A lot of stuff has come out since you voted. So if you live here, ... you can change your vote for Donald Trump," the billionaire businessman said, adding, "We'll make American great again. ... She'll never make America great again."
Trump was joined by several prominent Republicans. He was introduced by Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson (R), former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, a representative from Wisconsin, was not in attendance, though he did announce Tuesday that he had already voted early for Trump.
In the Badger State, people are allowed to change their vote up to three times.
