Donald Trump Jr. will travel to Green Bay, Wisconsin, in early June to fundraise and campaign for Republican Wisconsin Congressional candidate Tony Wied; the Daily Caller has first learned.

Trump Jr. will travel to Green Bay on June 4 for a private fundraiser, sources confirmed to the Caller. Following the fundraiser, Trump Jr. will attend a rally at a warehouse owned by a leading job creator in the district, AmeriLux International. The Caller is told hundreds of people are expected to show up.

“My father and I need the great patriots of Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional district to send us Tony Wied to Washington DC. Tony will help secure our border, unleash American energy, and drain the swamp!,” Trump Jr. told the Caller.

“Andre Jacque and Roger Roth are both career politicians who bounce around from one position to the next. They have lived off of taxpayers basically their entire adult lives. Tony Wied on the other hand owned and operated businesses in the district for nearly three decades. We need more outsiders like my father and Tony in DC. We don’t need any more career politicians,” Trump Jr. added.

Wied is running in WI-08, previously held by Rep. Mike Gallagher, who announced in late March that he would resign from Congress early. Wied picked up the support of former President Donald Trump and has since raised $700,000, according to his campaign.

Wied has also received endorsements from North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville, Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson, and Florida Rep. Anna Paulina Luna.

Experts recently told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the several more high-profile exits of senior House Republican committee chairs, including Gallagher, may spell both policy and electoral trouble for them throughout 2024. Gallagher’s exit, effective in April, left Congressional Republicans with a razor-thin 217-213 majority in the House.

The lawmakers include House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Kay Granger, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Patrick McHenry and House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green, although Green is reportedly reconsidering retirement.
