Dozens of protesters entered the Holiday Inn Express on Monday evening as part of an anti-Donald Trump protest, according to Gazette reporter Nick Crow, who was on the scene. A state Assembly representative is among the 60 or so protesters who occupied the lobby of the Holiday Inn Express in Janesville.
Shortly before 7 p.m., Janesville police on the scene had not moved to remove the protesters, who were chanting and refusing to leave, Crow said. Hotel staff was not allowing anyone else in the hotel unless they were guests, Crow said. About 20 more protesters did not go in the hotel and remain outside. The protest was set to start at 6 p.m. Protesters entered the hotel and then left when asked to, Crow said. READ MORE
