Having never visited the state during the general campaign, word now comes that Hillary Clinton will make a stop in Milwaukee on November 9 at the Riverside Theater. The planned visit; which happens to take place one year and a day after the 2016 Presidential Election, will be part of Clinton’s book tour for her campaign memoir, “What Happened.”
This will mark Clinton’s first steps inside the Badger State since losing the Democratic presidential primary in April 2016. She was supposed to visit the state with former President Barack Obama shortly after the Democratic National Committee for a joint rally in Green Bay. That campaign stop was postponed after the Orlando nightclub shooting.
While surrogates would often make their way to Wisconsin on her behalf, Hillary Clinton herself never visited the state. No explanation as to why her campaign decided against sending her to Wisconsin has ever been given.
Join Hillary Rodham Clinton this Fall as she travels the United States. She’ll connect with audiences in a conversation about a story that’s personal, raw, detailed and surprisingly funny. She’ll take you with her on her journey and talk about What Happened, what’s next, and what’s on your mind. What you’ll see will be her story – Live. Her story of resilience, how to get back up after a loss, and how we can all look ahead. It’s about Hillary’s experience as a woman in politics — she lets loose on this topic, and others, in a way she never has before.
Maybe should have visited Wisconsin over a year ago. At least once…#WhatHappened

I'm glad she failed to get there before the election. Lol! Russia didn't hide the whole state from her.

Tickets for the event go on sale in September. No prices have yet announced.
Clinton lost the state of Wisconsin to Donald Trump by over 22,000 votes. She was the first Democratic presidential candidate to lose the Badger State since 1984.
