A 60-year-old retired schoolteacher showed up to Kenosha's Civic Center Park on Thursday to serve as a one woman cheering squad for Joe Biden as he arrived in town - two days after President Trump's visit drew hundreds of supporters and protesters to the same downtown park.
'Maybe I'm in the wrong spot, I don't know,' Michelle Stauder told DailyMail.com just before a few Biden supporters walked over to join her. 'I hope to get it started.'
She waved a Biden-Harris sign and sported a red, white and blue cowboy hat, blue hair, flags and Joe buttons she crafted for the occasion, saying: 'I made my signs and buttons, I'm really excited.'
The former educator stood by herself just down the street from where 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, armed with a semi-automatic rifle, shot and killed two protesters and injured a third during a period of civil unrest after Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by a police officer.
Biden's welcoming committee was noticeably smaller than the hundreds of supporters and protesters that Trump drew when he visited the violence-ravaged town on Tuesday.

'I guess I'd rather have it this way,' peaceful,' she continued. 'I'm glad he's coming here to talk to people and promote peace.'
Stauder added: 'I just want to support Joe and let him know he's doing the right thing - telling people to wear masks and that it's not right to shoot people and settle things with violence. It's the opposite of Trump.'
Cheryl Strockis, 53, an Alabama resident in town visiting family, soon joined Stauder, sans sign.
'I'd like to see him and show him my support and wave,' Strockis said.
'I'm not disappointed there's no crowd. Biden's side is peaceful.'
She explained she was messaging her out of town friends to tell them about the event.
'They know I'm down here In Civic Center Park basically alone and they're like, 'be careful',' she said. 'I'm
