    Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers is asking for the help of President Donald Trump in getting his state supporters to wear a mask and socially distance, amid record cases and deaths in the state. Trump was scheduled to be in Janesville on Saturday for a fundraiser. His campaign has not said whether there will be any public events. Trump resumed campaigning on Monday after being quarantined at the White House following his positive test for the coronavirus. “We need to focus on what we can do as a state to survive this pandemic in a way that doesn’t kill more people and having people not wear a mask, and that’s socially distance is not the way we’re going to solve this. We need the president’s help here,” Evers said Tuesday. The state Department of Health Services reported 3,279 confirmed new cases, breaking a record of 3,132 set just five days earlier. There were 34 deaths reported, also a new high, bringing the total number of people who have died to 1,508. To date, more than 155,000 people in Wisconsin have tested positive. Wisconsin’s death count as of Monday was the 30th highest in the country overall and the 42nd highest per capita at more than 25 deaths per 100,000 people. The 595 new cases per 100,000 people in Wisconsin over the past two weeks, which ranks fourth in the country for new cases per capita. Evers, a Democrat, attributed the increase to the Wisconsin Supreme Court striking down his “safer at home” order in May at the request of Republicans opponents, as well as fatigue over wearing masks and taking other steps to slow the spread. Evers also called on Republicans who control the Legislature to come forward with their plans for fighting the virus. Republicans successfully sued to overturn Evers’ “safer at home” order earlier this year and are now suing to overturn the statewide mask mandate Evers enacted. A GOP-controlled legislative committee took steps on Monday to block new indoor capacity limits Evers ordered.
