Village of Lake Hallie (WQOW) - A Republican candidate for Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District is making a last push for votes before Tuesday's primary election.
As part of his Presidents Day district tour, Jason Church stopped at Marc-On
Shooting in Lake Hallie to speak with voters.
He talked about how he could bring a perspective of leadership from outside of politics, and mentioned several issues he'd tackle if elected to the Congressional seat.
"I certainly want to work with the president on some trade deals," said Church. "Obviously what we need to do here for the exportation of more of our farming goods, more of our manufacturing goods, would require some deals. The U.K. just left the E.U. We should start working on that deal. And I'd like to help him negotiate some of these things. I'd also like to work on strengthening our military and modernizing it."
Republican Senator Tom Tiffany of Minocqua is also vying to represent the district in Washington D.C. Tiffany says if people vote for him, he would help President Trump with border control.
"As a state senator, I helped get rid of a $3 billion deficit in Wisconsin. We need to do the same at the federal level, and we need to secure the border," said Tiffany. "We need to secure the border so we know who's coming in and out of our country as well as to control the rise of methamphetamine that comes from Mexico as well as human trafficking."
As we've reported, the 7th Congressional District seat was vacated after Sean Duffy resigned in September due to family reasons. Democratic candidates on Tuesday's ballot are Lawrence Dale and Tricia Zunker. Polls are open February 18 from 7 A.M. To 8 P.M.
