DARIEN, Wisc.–Where is Joe Biden? That was one of the many questions former Indiana Governor and Vice President Mike Pence asked to a crowd at a rally in Darien, Wisconsin Wednesday.
Biden is the presumptive Democratic nominee for President. He is scheduled to give his acceptance speech virtually at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night.
Pence told the crowd in Wisconsin that he had watched coverage of the DNC Convention.
“Where the other side’s online, we’re going to be on the streets in the Badger State,” said Pence. “I did hear that the Democrats were supposed to have their national convention in Wisconsin, but they couldn’t make it.”
Pence drove home the point that Biden has not been in the state of Wisconsin for more than 600 days. He says the Trump administration has many accomplishments to celebrate.
“It’s been three and a half years of action, three and a half years of results, three and a half of years of promises made and promises kept. It’s been three and a half years of jobs…jobs…jobs!”, said Pence to the roar of applause. “Men and women of Wisconsin, the great American comeback is on!”
Pence said he doesn’t even recognize the Democratic party anymore.
“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would set America on a path of socialism and decline. The truth is Biden and the Democratic party have been overtaken by the radical left. They would take this country in an entirely different direction,” said Pence. “The trade deals Biden supported in his four decades in Washington cost jobs here in Wisconsin.”
Wisconsin is considered a key swing state in the 2020 election. That means it is a state that could reasonably be won by either the Democratic or Republican presidential candidate by a swing in votes.
“The truth is Biden and the radical left are deeply out of step with the people of Wisconsin on every issue that matters,” said Pence.
The Republican National Convention is scheduled for August 24-27.
