Hancock even broke news on that Wisconsin trip, telling voters if the election were to be held right now the president would lose Wisconsin and its coveted 10 electoral votes.

Hancock told the crowd that the state could be lost if Dems didn’t get out the early vote. Early voting started in Wisconsin on Oct. 22.

“We have not turned out the vote early,” Hancock told the newspaper. “The suburbs and rural parts of Wisconsin – the Republican base – are voting. President Obama’s base has yet to go vote. We’ve got to get our people to go vote.”

The Wisconsin Democratic Party had to scale back Hancock’s statements, telling the Washington Examiner that while it appreciated Hancock’s efforts, his facts were off.

“We are very grateful that Mayor Hancock came and did what we need to do, which is keep people enthused. He is absolutely right that we have to get our base out,” said Joe Zepecki, a spokesman for Obama’s campaign in Wisconsin. “But the numbers we are seeing do not back up his assessment that our base is not turning out.”
