Kenosha County voters prepare for Election Day

NOW: Kenosha County voters prepare for Election Day

KENOSHA (CBS 58) — President Trump’s visit to Kenosha Monday was in a county he narrowly won in 2016. 

It’s also a city that has been in the national spotlight following the shooting of Jacob Blake by a Kenosha police officer, the unrest that followed, and the arrest of Kyle Rittenhouse, who has been charged with shooting three people and killing two of them. 

Voters we talked to said this summer’s events have mobilized voters on both sides of the aisle. 

“One of the issues has been law and order,” said Matthew Berg, a Donald Trump supporter, who said abortion and the economy are also important issues for him. 

“Police brutality, the systemic and inequality that we see for people of color,” said Joe Cardinali, a Joe Biden supporter, about some of the issues that are important to him. 

A rally was also held at Civic Center Park in Kenosha Monday, where Jacob Blake’s uncle was among the speakers.”

“You get to cast in your vote, do you know what that means? That’s power."
