Senate Candidates crisscross state in last minute campaigning

LA CROSSE, Wis. — The four republican candidates for the open U.S. Senate seat in Wisconsin crisscrossed the state one day before the polls open.

Former Congressman Mark Neumann and businessman Eric Hovde both made stops in La Crosse Monday. Tommy Thompson and Jeff Fitzgerald were elsewhere around the state.

It was their last chance to win over undecided voters. “Politics was something I never envisioned getting into, I was just so concerned about the direction our country was heading with our $16 trillion in debt and that propelled me to get out of the private sector,” said Eric Hovde.

“Feeling great, the support is growing all over the state. The Tea Party Express endorsement was certainly very important to us, time to come home to the true conservative and vote for us,” said Mark Neumann.

“Well the message is very simple, we have to turn this country around and for our children and grandchildren we’ve been waiting too long to solve the problems,” said Tommy Thompson.

“I get a lot of people who are undecided that said you know what we didn’t know who to vote for, but we like the kind of campaign you’ve run, the other guys have gone negative and you know what, we’re going to vote for you,” said Jeff Fitzgerald.

The winner of the primary goes on to face Tammy Baldwin, the only democrat running for the seat.
