Eau Claire Holds $54K Bill For Trump, Clinton Campaign Stops

(Eau Claire, WI) -- Eau Claire city officials are trying to figure out how to get the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump campaigns to pay up.

The two presidential candidates made appearances in the Wisconsin city on the same day last April. Clinton's bill is almost seven-thousand dollars, while Trump owes 47-thousand for a rally at Memorial High School. The Trump event cost more because it required more preparation. The situation facing the city is exactly why officials at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire say they require payments before an event can be held on campus -- and Trump and Bernie Sanders did just that last year, paying before they appeared.
