Trump Tells Early Voters to Change Their Ballots If They Have 'Buyer's Remorse'

Joe Raedle/Getty Images(EAU CLAIRE, Wis.) — Donald Trump continued his push to secure support from the other side of the aisle Tuesday — telling early voters that they can change their minds if they have "buyer's remorse."

"This is a message for any Democratic voter who have already cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton and who are having a bad case of buyer's remorse," he told rallygoers in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. "In other words you want to change your vote."

Trump’s pitch comes just days after the FBI dropped a bombshell late last week that a batch of emails was being reviewed in potential connection to the Clinton email probe. Despite calls from Clinton, top Democrats and some Republican leaders — sources tell ABC News the FBI is unlikely to release more information on the scope of the investigation until after Election Day.

With seven days left to go until America votes, Trump’s pitch to early voters for a redo appears to be a Hail Mary. The Republican nominee has been hitting the Clinton email investigation hard including new emails disclosed by Wikileaks from Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta.

In Wisconsin, a voter has a right to three ballots. If they have voted early, the voter is able to "cancel" their ballots if they feel they made the wrong choice, a rule that applies to absentee voters as well. Other states like Pennsylvania and Michigan have similar rules that allow for changes to be made. Minnesota also allows changes, but the deadline is one week before Election Day, which has now passed.

In Wisconsin Tuesday night, Trump was joined by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus along with state leadership including Governor Scott Walker and Senator Ron Johnson. Johnson has been in a tough re-election battle against the man he beat out six years ago — former Senator Russ Feingold.

"I hope you are all going to get out and vote for Ron,” Trump told his supporters Tuesday night.
