HAGER CITY, WI – After a dominant week on the campaign trail last week, Derrick Van Orden continued building support across the district.
After announcing a $2 million commitment to supporting Derrick last week, the Congressional Leadership Fund launched their second ad. It highlights Kind missing 138 votes in under 3 years, pay-to-play allegations, and his voting record as a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi.
This week, Derrick hosted two Women’s Roundtables, one in Eau Claire on Tuesday and one in Onalaska on Friday.
WQOW in Eau Claire covered the Tuesday event. See below for a quote from co-host Kathy Kivlin:
“You know, Derrick is so open,” Kathy Kivlin said. “He wants to hear, genuinely wants to hear from women and what women have to say. So, I think it’ll have a huge impact because he wants to know if are there things he hasn’t thought about or hasn’t covered.”
On Friday, business owner Sue Kolve in Onalaska said of Derrick following the Women’s Business Roundtable: “Derrick knows what this district needs. He sees everyone in the district as Americans, and will work to get the best outcomes for all men and women, Democrats and Republicans here in western Wisconsin.”
Lastly, Derrick spoke at the Presidential Debate Watch Party at Loggers Stadium in La Crosse. He was joined by Republican candidates Dan Kapanke, Jerome Gunderson and Kevin Hoyer.
