WI Dems optimistic following fall primary

Eau Claire (WQOW) – The primary is over, which means the slate of candidates is set for the November election.  Wisconsin Democrats said they are optimistic. 

Chris Kapsner, Democratic candidate for the 23rd Senate District, said the Democrats have the wind at their backs, but still face an uphill battle. 

With unemployment down and the stock market up, some Republicans are taking credit, but Kapsner said those two indicators do not show the real struggles going on in our country.

"It doesn’t reflect the ongoing struggles with job insecurity, state net wages and the struggles for affordable healthcare. Many people need two jobs to keep their head above water," Kapsner said.

Democrat Wren Keturi, who is running for the 67th Assembly District against Republican incumbent Rob Summerfield, believes more in long-term investments within Wisconsin communities.

"Walker is now feeling afraid that people are actually going to kick him out of office. He is definitely throwing out a lot of programs that you know just two years ago you would of seen Walker veto, so I think its clear that Democrats have the momentum," Keturi said.

The Wisconsin Democratic Party said they are confident about taking back the majority in the Senate and the assembly.
