LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - One of Wisconsin’s federal representatives stopped by UW-La Crosse.
U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin visited the campus Tuesday as a part of her statewide 'Working for You' tour.
Baldwin says the afternoon stop was about encouraging and motivating young voters to make it to the polls next week. She also says all voters have expressed a need for improved health care legislation.
"So many Wisconsinites are terrified that they're an illness or an injury away from what could be catastrophic for their entire family. We don't need to go back to those days,” said Baldwin.
The most recent Marquette Law School poll among likely Wisconsin voters shows Baldwin has a 10-percentage point lead over republican challenger Leah Vukmir.
The fall election is next Tuesday, November 6. Wisconsin voters can find their polling location and a mock ballot at the state's My Vote website.
