Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will visit Wisconsin almost exactly one year after she lost the 2016 presidential election.

Clinton will speak at Riverside Theater in Milwaukee on Nov. 9 to promote her new book What Happened, according to the former Democratic presidential candidate's schedule.

Clinton lost the state to now-President Donald Trump by less than one percent on the night of Nov. 8, 2016. Post-election autopsies noted that Clinton failed to visit Wisconsin a single time during the general election, while Trump visited it several times.

Trump's victory in Wisconsin marked the first time the state voted for a Republican presidential candidate since 1984, when Ronald Reagan was elected to office.

Following the announcement, pundits on Twitter began immediately making wise cracks about the irony of Clinton's visit.
