Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Wisconsin next week for a pair of events to raise money for Gov. Scott Walker.

Invitations obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday show that Pence is scheduled to host fundraisers in Green Bay and Eau Claire on Oct. 10, just a month before the election.

Walker is locked in a tight battle with Democrat Tony Evers. Recent polls have shown Evers with a slight lead over Walker, who is running for a third term.

Pence was last in Wisconsin on Aug. 30 when he held a fundraiser for Republican Senate candidate Leah Vukmir.

President Donald Trump has endorsed Walker but has not yet come to the state to campaign with him or raise money for him.

The Green Bay event is during the day and Eau Claire is at night.
