Harris will tout apprenticeships in a swing state visit to Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. — Vice President Kamala Harris plans to return to the swing state of Wisconsin next week for an event touting internship programs for workers, the White House announced Thursday.

The visit to Madison marks her sixth trip to Wisconsin as vice president and her second this year. She was in Waukesha in January for an abortion rights rally.

Wisconsin is one of just a handful of battleground states in the presidential election. President Joe Biden won the state by less than 1 percentage point in 2020 and both parties are making it a target again this year.

The White House said Harris will highlight the Biden administration’s commitment to registered internship programs and the creation of good-paying union jobs. Harris will be joined by Labor Secretary Julie Su. Last year, Biden visited a union training center near Madison. He has made eight trips to Wisconsin as president.
