Joe Biden’s Presidential campaign just got some bad news.
And it came in a battleground that has haunted Democrats in the past.
Now a new candidate in the Presidential race could cost Joe Biden this key state.
In 2016 Donald Trump won Wisconsin after Hillary Clinton famously never visited the state.
Clinton took it for granted because it voted for Democrats in every Presidential election from 1988 to 2012.
Wisconsin was the first “blue wall” state to fall on Election Night and Trump flipping the state red made it clear Trump would win the Presidency.
Democrats made Wisconsin a priority and flipped the Governorship in 2018 and public polls in 2020 showed Joe Biden with a lead over the President.
But Democrats and Joe Biden have a new worry in Wisconsin.
Famed rap star Kayne West previously declared his candidacy for President and submitted enough signatures to qualify for the ballot in Wisconsin.
Democrats claim West – whose latest album is a celebration of his Christian faith and who has strongly come out against abortion – is running a stalking horse campaign for President to siphon black votes from Biden.
“Thankfully the Trump team is showing their cards that the real force driving Kanye West to run is not people but Trump,” Democrat State Representative David Bowen told fake news CNN. “This is clearly a targeted effort by Republican operatives to cause confusion and problems for typically Democratic voters on Election Day.”
“It’s sad to see a popular music artist like Kanye,” Bowen continued, “be used as a pawn to trick his own people & fans to vote for a fake campaign.”
As evidence of this supposedly “sinister” plot, Democrats cited as evidence the fact that lawyer Lane Rudolph – who helped West qualify for the ballot – once represented the Trump campaign in a lawsuit against a Wisconsin TV station over an attack ad produced by a left-wing Super PAC.
Republicans scoffed at this conspiracy theory.
“It appears that the Kanye West campaign made a smart decision by hiring an experienced election attorney,” Wisconsin Republican Party spokeswoman Alesha Guenther told fake news CNN. “We welcome Kanye West and all other candidates who qualified for ballot access to the race, and look forward to delivering Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes to President Trump.”
President Trump also denied any knowledge or involvement in West’s effort to make the ballot in Wisconsin during a press conference at the White House.
Donald Trump won Wisconsin by a slim 23,000 vote margin in 2016.
Black voters not turning out at the same level for Hillary Clinton as they did Barack Obama played a key role in Trump’s win.
Democrats worry that with West on the ballot he could take votes away from voters that dislike both Trump and Biden, but would otherwise reluctantly vote for Biden given no other alternative.
