Appleton, WI – U.S. Senate candidate and Outagamie County executive Tom Nelson will visit 12 more counties on the third and fourth day of his “Full Nelson 72 Counties Tour” today and on Aug. 7.
Nelson announced the tour in a video explaining his plan as the only Senate candidate to travel through all of Wisconsin’s 72 counties in 72 days.
“I come from the Fox Valley, a tough place for Democrats to win, but I’ve won six times. So look for us, coming soon to a restaurant, to a gas station, a community center near you,” said Nelson in the video launch.
The tour will continue through September, with Nelson driving all night long to make sure he hits each community and is open and accessible to all. While many candidates do tours that only involve elected officials and select invited guests, Nelson has chosen to open his tour up to anyone who wants to see him at the local pub, McDonalds and coffee shops, an extension of his strategy from when he knocked on over 20,000 doors to become the only Democrat in 2004 to defeat a Republican incumbent for State Assembly. As the only elected official living in a Trump county, Tom’s success is built on hard work and not being afraid to speak to anyone, regardless of political party.
