Sen. Tammy Baldwin visits students at UW-Eau Claire ahead of election day

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Tuesday evening Senator Tammy Baldwin made a stop at the UWEC campus to chat with college students.

It’s just one short stop on her final campaign push ahead of election day. Many of her stops in this final week are smaller, more intimate gatherings.

During her speech, she reiterated the importance of providing good health care and covering those with pre-existing conditions. She also urged students to vote, saying their voices are important and most policies passed will affect them the longest.

As the campaign winds down, Baldwin said the key to winning is getting people to the polls. “These last days it’s really thanking the volunteers, thanking the people who’ve been out canvassing for months now, who’ve been on the phones,” Baldwin told News 18. “And making sure that we pull out all the stops to make sure people can early vote, and then vote on election day.”

Baldwin will be back in the area Wednesday, October 31, for an event at the Norske Nook in Rice Lake at 12:45 p.m.
