[Madison, WI]— With the election just weeks away, Wisconsin Republicans rallied supporters in Burlington this weekend. With Scott Walker, Paul Ryan, Leah Vukmir, Brad Schimel and Bryan Steil in attendance, Wisconsin Republicans made their message clear: we’re better off now thanks to Republican leadership.
Check out what they’re saying about Fall Fest:
From the Journal Times: The annual event drew more than 350 people to Brightonwoods Orchard for 2 ½ hours of talks by Republican politicians and hopefuls, from Gov. Scott Walker to Ryan, the closing speaker who is retiring from politics after this term. Their overriding message — apart from praising and thanking Ryan — was that Republican candidates could be vulnerable this fall unless every supporter gets to work rousing others to join the cause.
From the Kenosha News: Continuing a message he has shared since announcing his bid for re-election nearly a year ago, Walker implored supporters to galvanize and share “the good news” of what has transpired during his nearly two terms in office.
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Ryan, who announced earlier this year that he was retiring from Congress, became emotional at times during the event, which was held at Brightonwoods Orchard. The Janesville Republican told the crowd of about 300 supporters how much Fall Fest had grown since the inaugural event 18 years ago, when only about 40 people gathered in a nearby barn.
From CBS 58: Steil says he’s been working to get his messages out to voters like; making health care more affordable and working on a long-term solution to what he calls a spending problem in Wisconsin. “We’re in the fourth quarter. The score doesn’t matter now, the score matters on Nov 6 and so I’m focused on getting out, getting my message out, introducing myself to voters.”
