WEST SALEM, Wis. -- While the recall election may be over, the race for Wisconsin's open U.S. Senate seat is just starting to heat up.
One of the republican candidates, Eric Hovde, made a stop at Beyer Cabinets in West Salem Tuesday afternoon. That's where he unveiled his eight-point budget plan for America.14799128
It includes a number of government reforms, repealing Obamacare, and cutting increased government spending across the board. "What has that trillion dollars of extra spending given us? A higher unemployment rate, a growth rate that is half of what most post-recovery periods are. It isn't working, we have to free up our private sector and let them create jobs and opportunity," said Hovde.
Three other republicans are in the race against him: Former congressman Mark Neumann, former governor Tommy Thompson, and state representative Jeff Fitzgerald. The lone Democrat in the race is Tammy Baldwin.
