LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – Democratic Congresswoman and U.S. Senate Candidate Tammy Baldwin stopped in La Crosse Tuesday, where she took in the basics of three small businesses located in La Crosse's Business Development Center.
Baldwin, who was joined by current U.S. Senator Herb Kohl (D) praised the center's shared resources which allow small companies to save costs while getting their feet wet in their respective industries.
The center acts as an incubator where start-up companies can grow before expanding into their own spaces.
Baldwin said she is an advocate for helping small businesses both through legislation and through encouraging Americans to buy their products to stave off competition from China.
The Congresswoman said she would bring those ideas, along with an open mind, to Washington if elected.
"If we're going to be responsive to the struggles of middle class Wisconsin and hardworking families, and if we're going to bring manufacturing jobs back and address the US deficit, we're going to have to work across partisan lines," Baldwin said.
Baldwin is facing Republican former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson in November's US Senate election.
Kohl, who is retiring, has endorsed Baldwin for the seat.
