KENOSHA - Senator Bob Wirch says Democrats were asleep last November, but he says they are definitely awake now. Meanwhile, Republican challenger, Jonathan Steitz is bringing out the big names to help his cause.
On his summer break from Congress, Representative Paul Ryan spent the afternoon in Kenosha stumping for Jonathan Steitz in a seat Ryan hopes Republicans can take over.
"I think these recall elections are a vindication that the new leadership in Madison is taking us in the right direction. They are cutting spending, getting taxes down so we can create jobs," said Rep. Paul Ryan.
"It's great. It's an honor to have him here, I appreciate his time. I think the turnout today shows that we have a real good grassroots effort behind us," Steitz said.
But incumbent State Senator Bob Wirch says he's not worried that Ryan is lending his support to help Steitz's cause.
"We brought out a bigger dog. We brought out Representative Jan Schakowsky for me. Quite frankly, I like her ideas more than Paul Ryan's," Wirch said.
Both Wirch and Steitz say the turnout and results from this past Tuesday's election will help them in their election this coming Tuesday.
