Appleton, WI – U.S. Senate candidate and Outagamie County executive Tom Nelson announced in a video today that he will tour all of Wisconsin’s 72 counties in 72 days on the “Full Nelson 72 Counties Tour” starting on July 28.
“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 Sept. 8, 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. He has won six times in a Trump county because he’s not afraid to speak to anyone, regardless of political party.

TOM: Hi, Tom Nelson, candidate for the U.S. Senate, coming to you live from Highway 10 – in the middle of our great state. This is a practice trip of sorts because later this week, we’ll be kicking off the ‘Full Nelson Tour.’ That’s right, 72 counties in 72 days – we are going all over! I want to find out the issues that are important to you because when I go to Washington, I’m going to take on the corporate interests. I’m going to put the billionaires and the millionaires in a headlock because I’m going to Washington to work for you. I’m gonna fight for a Green New Deal, Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage. 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.
