Copy-Kaine praises Wisconsin voting rights ruling in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Hillary Clinton's running mate Tim Kaine says in his first campaign stop in Wisconsin that a federal court ruling overturning a number of voting restrictions approved by Republicans will allow more people to vote.
Kaine on Friday hailed last week's ruling striking down as unconstitutional number of limitations on early voting locations, hours and elements of Wisconsin's photo identification requirement. Kaine spoke at a rally outside of Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee. His appearance came about six hours before Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was to hold a rally in Green Bay.
While Wisconsin's highest ranked Republican office holders were skipping the Trump rally, Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, of Milwaukee, and the city's Mayor Tom Barrett all spoke at the Kaine event.
