Laning: Bernie Sanders wants to help Democrats in Wisconsin

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

The chair of the Wisconsin Democratic Party says Bernie Sanders has contacted her about campaigning in the state to help other candidates on the ballot.

State party chair Martha Laning said in a conference call with reporters on Wednesday that the Sanders campaign has been in touch about campaigning in the state. She says "he'd like to know about races we'd like help with."

Laning did not say what races those may be.

Sanders has deep support in Wisconsin. He won the state's April primary over Hillary Clinton by 13 points.

Neither Clinton nor Sanders has been back to the state since. Clinton was scheduled to make her first appearance with President Barack Obama in Green Bay, but it was canceled because of the Orlando nightclub shooting.
