La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) - State Representative Steve Doyle (D) announced his re-election campaign Tuesday.
He says that he has done more than just make promises during his time in office. His focus is on two issues he says he's heard often from residents, jobs and bi-partisanship. Doyle believes that as a small business owner, he understands the red tape and taxes that affect small business in Wisconsin and is working to find ways to decrease those burdens. He also pointed to the 87 bills he co-sponsored in the state legislature, 44 of which were introduced by Democrats. The other 43 were introduced by Republicans.
Representative Doyle said, "I keep telling people that the folks who are unemployed are saying they don't want to wait until January when we're back in session to get a job. They want a job now. So I think we're remiss to not be dealing with that issue right here right now in Wisconsin. And I'm going to continue to repeat the call for a special session on jobs."
Doyle says that politicians need to get back to the era of respect and working together, but it isn't going to happen overnight.
Two Republicans are in the race for Doyle's seat. Bruce Evers will face Kevin Hintz in a primary August 14th.
