Gov. Tony Evers

A spokeperson for Democratic Gov. Tony Evers says he doesn’t plan to meet with Republican President Donald Trump during the president’s visit to Green Bay Saturday.

For Evers, that’s a shift from his predecessor, former Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Walker met with Democratic President Barack Obama at least three times when Obama visited Wisconsin.

Evers spokeswoman Melissa Baldauff said in a statement that the White House did not invite the governor to meet the president during his visit.

Trump will be at the Resch Center in Green Bay Saturday evening for a “Make America Great Again” rally. A release announcing the event said Trump “looks forward to sharing the successes of his administration with the great people of Wisconsin.”
