Madonna Wickingson, of Lake Nebagamon, stood in line wrapped snuggly in a red blanket, fending off the cool day.
“I have an extra one but nobody seems to want it,” Wickingson said.
She waited in the cold for nearly three hours, showing up at the middle school 10:30 a.m. with her husband, Roger, and friend Nan Ruzycki, also of Lake Nebagamon.
Madonna Wickingson said she hoped the vice president would talk about “how positive everything is going” and reassure democratic voters that victory was possible.
“Look at where they are and look at where they’ll be going if they don’t stand behind Obama,” Madonna Wickingson said. “All they have to do is think back to the Bush administration, and that’s where we’ll be.”
“That’s the clearest signal there is,” Roger Wickingson. “Look what he left. It’s so clear that anybody ought to be able to see it.”
