How Donald Trump won in Wisconsin and Wisconsin Republican wins governor’s race
By AP NewsFile, February 06, 2021 at 09:01:00Republican businessman Donald Trump’s bid to become the next governor of Wisconsin went into its fourth day on Saturday, with voters in the state’s largest state choosing a Republican from the party’s conservative base over Democrat Bruce Rauner.
Trump defeated Rauners Democrat challenger by a landslide in the second-largest state in the country, but Republican Governor Scott Walker’s re-election campaign quickly said it will spend the next week knocking on doors in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania to help win over Democratic voters who had not previously expressed an interest in the race.
Walker is scheduled to campaign for Walker on Monday in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin.
Walker has been in a tight race against Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff for months, as the two have battled to unseat each other in races that could determine control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Ossof is running as a moderate Democrat who has said he’s not running for re-elected, while Walker is more moderate than the GOP standard bearer, who has been accused of being too liberal.

The state’s Republican Party, led by state Sen. Mark Green, has not yet said how it will distribute the vote, though Republican leaders have said they will not dole out ballots until the final days.
The election was the second for a Wisconsin governor in less than a month.
In January, Democrat Jon Oswego lost to Republican Gov.
Rebecca Kleefisch by less than 4 percentage points.
The governor then announced that she would not seek another term in 2019.
