Hillary Clinton will stop in Wisconsin for her book tour, a state she notoriously skipped during the presidential election.

Clinton was the first major-party nominee since 1972 to skip Wisconsin during the general election, and she ended up losing the state and the election to President Donald Trump. Since her defeat, Clinton wrote “What Happened,” a memoir of her time on the campaign trail.

The book comes out Sept. 12, and included on her initial list of stops is an event in Milwaukee on Nov. 9. Her book tour will also include three stops in Canada, and a stop in Michigan, another traditionally Democratic state went for Trump.

Excerpts have been released from the book, and Clinton wrote, “I don’t have all the answers and this isn’t a comprehensive account of the 2016 race. In this book, I write about moments from the campaign that I wish I could go back and do over. If the Russians could hack my subconscious, they’d find a long list.”

She also wrote that she felt “incredibly uncomfortable” during the second presidential debate when President Trump stood behind her.

“Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly, ‘Back up you creep, get away from me?’ … I kept my cool, aided by a lifetime of dealing with men trying to throw me off,” the failed candidate says in the book.
