PEWAUKEE Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Two once former partners in the White House are endorsing different GOP candidates in Wisconsin’s governor’s race. Former Vice President Mike Pence was in Wisconsin yesterday campaigning alongside candidate Rebecca Kleefisch.

Kleefisch hosted a law enforcement round table in Pewaukee. She pledged to fully fund police and put 1-thousand more cops on the street.

About a dozen members of area law enforcement participated in the discussion. Pence told the audience why he is endorsing Kleefisch in the GOP race. 

“Wisconsin and American’s need Rebecca Kleefisch to be the next governor of the great state of Wisconsin. There’s no candidate for governor in America who is more capable, more experienced, or more proven conservative.”

Former president Donald Trump will be in Waukesha on Friday for a rally supporting Kleefisch’s opponent candidate Tim Michel’s. The winner of next Tuesday’s primary race will face off against Democratic Governor Tony Evers in the November election.
