Brookfield, Wis. — Nurse and U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir on Wednesday announced that she’s kicked off her 2018 Wisconsin Way tour.
“Nothing is more important to me as I run to take the Wisconsin Way to Washington than to hear from voters about the issues that matter to them,” Leah said. “Since I considered running for the U.S. Senate, I’ve put on more than 44,000 miles on my car driving to meet face to face with Wisconsinites all across our state. The resounding message I hear is that we need a proven conservative to defeat Tammy Baldwin.”
Leah is eager to meet with Wisconsinites in every corner of the Badger State. She intends to visit all 72 counties in Wisconsin within the first few months of 2018.
In the month of January alone, Leah has already visited and talked to voters in 27 counties — Adams, Brown, Buffalo, Calumet, Crawford, Dane, Dodge, Douglas, Iowa, Kenosha, Kewaunee, La Crosse, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Monroe, Oconto, Ozaukee, Pepin, Shawano, Sheboygan, St. Croix, Trempealeau, Walworth, Washington, Waukesha, Waupaca and Winnebago.
In 2017, Leah spent a considerable amount of time traveling across the state to meet with voters, attending events in about two-thirds of Wisconsin counties since she began testing the waters for her U.S. Senate run.
