Former President Donald Trump will hold a Save America rally in Waukesha, Wisconsin at 7 p.m. CDT. He will be speaking in support of Tim Michaels, who is running for governor of the state.
Michels received the former president’s endorsement in June and is running against Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch in the Aug. 9 Republican gubernatorial primary. Kleefisch enjoy the support of former Vice President Mike Pence, making this race echo the recent Arizona primary, where former candidates also endorsed different candidates.
As with several primary races this year, this one was is interpreted as part of a “proxy war” between Trump and the Republican establishment to shape the future of the party. As of Wednesday, Trump’s approval record stands at 172-10.
