Thompson touts endorsements during stop in Onalaska

Candidates are in the final stretch of campaigning before November’s election. That includes the U.S. Senate race.

Republican Tommy Thompson made a stop in Onalaska Tuesday, one day after his challenger Tammy Baldwin was in the area.

He stopped at Schomburg Refrigeration Company where he received an endorsement from the National Federation of Independent Business.

Thompson says he keeps winning endorsements because of his record. “I balanced the budget 14 years in a row in the state of Wisconsin, she can’t even pass a budget and while she was there, the debt went from $6 trillion to $16 trillion,” said Thompson.

The latest Marquette University Law School poll shows a virtual tie in the race with Thompson leading 46% to 45% among likely voters.
