Coburn praises Neumann at Wisconsin campaign events

Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn praised Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark Neumann for standing up to excessive spending at campaign events in Green Bay and Milwaukee today.

During his address at the Milwaukee fundraiser, Coburn, a medical doctor, largely focused on the need to repeal Obama's health care reform and on market-driven policies to control the cost of health care.

In a press release, Coburn praised Neumann as a “true conservative” and for standing up to spending.

“I’ve seen firsthand the courage Mark Neumann showed in Congress,” Coburn said. “He stood up to the big spenders in both parties to balance the budget. He fought so hard against government spending the leaders of his own party kicked him off a committee. But he kept fighting, and when he left Congress the budget was balanced for the first time in a generation.”

Neumann thanked Coburn for leading other conservative senators in standing up for him at that time.

“They got a group of people together and marched into [then-Speaker Newt Gingrich's] office … and said 'we're not going to do business this way,'” Neumann said. “That was Sen. Coburn leading that group of people that walked into Newt's office.”

Neumann focused much of his speech before the roughly 50 attendees on the need to curb federal spending, repeal Obama's health care reform, and to have a big vision for America.

Neumann said Gov. Scott Walker's recall win shows the state wants conservative leadership.

“What's Scott's win does, is it tells us that the people of the state of Wisconsin want a conservative to lead them in government,” Neumann said, adding that the argument that the GOP needs to nominate someone less conservative to win in the general election has gone “right out the window.”

“We just reelected the most conservative governor that Wisconsin has seen in generations.”
