Kreitlow, Vinehout address crowd ahead of Biden

Prior to Vice President Joe Biden's speech, 7th CD candidate Pat Kreitlow pointed the finger at the GOP in Congress -- including opponent and U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy -- for the lack of legislative progress.


"We've got a Congress right now with reality TV stars who are bringing a reality TV drama and conflict to Washington," Kreitlow said, referencing Duffy's time on MTV's "The Real World.” "That is not what we need. We need a Congress that gets back to work, that ends the games, ends the gridlock and finally gives Barack Obama and Joe Biden a Congress they can work with in a second term.”

Kreitlow said the GOP has attempted to roll back equal pay for women, give tax breaks to millionaires and "partially privatizing" Medicare. Duffy and Ryan were specifically called out on the Medicare changes.

State Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, D-Alma, also appeared at the event, saying that western Wisconsin's choice in the election could swing the presidential election.

"He [Biden] knows as Wisconsin's west coast goes, so goes Wisconsin," Vinehout said. "And this fall, as Wisconsin goes, so goes our country."

Vinehout asked Democratic supporters to get the word out about the November election, saying that she was proof that every vote counts.

"I won by one vote per ward right here in Eau Claire," Vinehout said. "And last year showed how important one vote was in the Wisconsin state Senate. Just remember, one vote per ward can change history and together we are going to change history on Election Day."
