Vice President Joe Biden appeared at Parkside last Friday, Oct. 26, 2012. On his one day, two-stop tour of Wisconsin, he urged supporters to take the opportunity to vote early and rallied people in Wisconsin during the home stretch of what has shaped up to be a tight campaign race. Packed into the Student Activity Center gymnasium, Biden told 1,500 students and other supporters that, “We’re going to win Wisconsin.”
