MADISON, Wis. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is telling Wisconsin voters he will build a coalition in the Midwest that will defeat President Donald Trump.

Sanders spoke in Madison Friday as he kicked off a swing through pivotal states that are part of the Democratic "blue wall" strategy for 2020.

Sanders spoke to a crowd of about 2,400 who braved 40-degree temperatures with a stiff 20 mph wind.

He is visiting Midwest states Trump narrowly won.

"Together, we are going to make sure that does not happen again."
His weekend swing is taking him to Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania," says Sanders.

Sanders spoke in a city park along the shores of a lake, just a few blocks away from the state Capitol.

Those in the crowd wore ski masks, winter coats, gloves and scarves as they cheered Sanders.
