LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – Eight days before the November 6 Election, Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D, Wisconsin) made yet another campaign stop in La Crosse.
Baldwin is running to replace retiring Democrat Herb Kohl in the U.S. Senate.
She's being challenged by former Republican Governor Tommy Thompson.
Baldwin told supporters Monday she is confident she will help bring Republicans and Democrats together if elected to the Senate.
"I'm confident I'll find common ground with Republicans, with Independents and with other Democrats," Baldwin said. "For example, on manufacturing, I hope to be a part of bringing together industrial state senators, both Democrats and Republicans, to work on a broader agenda."
Baldwin also said she is frustrated at the negative political advertisements that have characterized her race.
She and Thompson recently traded blows regarding each other's responses to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
"Voters are concerned about the economy, about jobs and the economic health of their communities," Baldwin said. "Regrettably, that has not been the focus of the last few weeks of this campaign."
