[Ed. – You knew it was going to be one of the Blue Wall states that went to Trump in 2016.]
Democrats have chosen Milwaukee as the site of their 2020 election convention, in an effort to win back swing voters in the American “Rust Belt” who helped elect Donald Trump.
In announcing the decision Monday, the Democratic Party emphasized it is the first time a Midwestern city other than Chicago has been chosen to host a party convention in more than 100 years. …
Many blue collar voters in struggling “Rust Belt” towns switched allegiance to vote for Trump, counting on his promises to revitalize American manufacturing.
He won the upper Midwestern state of Wisconsin, a crucial battleground home to Milwaukee, by a mere 23,000 votes out of nearly three million cast.
