Police are investigating a suspicious package someone left outside the Republican Party of Wisconsin’s Hudson field office early Tuesday morning. 

A person walking outside the field office, 121 S. Second St., Hudson, discovered the package, according to a news release from the Wisconsin Republicans.

Hudson police identified the package as a potential threat and evacuated the businesses in the mall. 

The Marathon County Bomb Team was in Hudson assisting with the package that was found, Marathon County Sheriff Scott Parks said. Parks would not say more about the incident.

“We have differences in our views, in our philosophies, and our vision for America, but violence or threats of violence cannot stand because such actions lead to potential destruction that can’t be overcome,” said Andrew Hitt, chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, in a news release. “We are grateful that everyone is safe at this time and we hope that the situation is swiftly and safely resolved.”

The suspicious package was found on the same day Vice President Mike Pence was at a rally in southern Wisconsin.

The incident remains under investigation and Hudson police ask that people avoid the area.
