MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Beto O'Rourke is coming to Wisconsin this weekend in an early campaign stop after launching his presidential bid in neighboring Iowa.

O'Rourke was slated to appear Sunday at a coffee shop in Madison, Wisconsin's liberal capital city.

It will be O'Rourke's second visit to the overwhelmingly Democratic city in a month. He met with University of Wisconsin students in February before he officially jumped in the race on Thursday.

O'Rourke's focus on Wisconsin emphasizes the state's importance in the 2020 race. On Monday, Democrats announced they would be holding their national convention in Milwaukee.
