Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Ahead of the August ninth primary, Wisconsin Republican Gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Kleefisch made a stop on the campaign trail today in Altoona. She talked and met with voters at the Altoona Family Restaurant on her plans to get Wisconsin “back on track” by addressing issues including the cost of living, schooling and violent crime in the state.
Former governor Scott joined her at the stop today. She says while a lot has changed since the first time she and walker ran for office in 2010, some things feel oddly similar.
“You know, we’re still seen as the little engine that could. I’m the middle-class mom on a budget and I’m the k-12 mom. But I think that that is what’s really resonating with people. I still drive a minivan with 200,000 miles on it.”
Kleefisch was joined by former vice president Mike Pence at stop later today in Pewaukee. She is competing with Tim Michel’s and Timothy Ramthun and Adam Fischer for the republican nomination.
