U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen arrived at the convention about 20 minutes ago and says it's good to be in Wisconsin again.
"I'm out in Washington, D.C.," Kagen said. "Sometimes I don't understand what they're saying and I'm not sure if I can believe them; here in Wisconsin, I can believe what you're telling me."
Kagen said Democrat's are looking good going into '08.
"What you're going to find is the Democrats are united," Kagen said. "We are the party of peace, the party of prosperity and the party of justice for everyone.
"It's our core values that really reach out and attract everyone to our message."
"I think people are still listening," Kagen said. "They're looking for believability, someone they can trust."
"If we've learned one thing in the past several years with this Republican administration is that you cannot trust Republicans with money anymore and you cannot trust Republicans in the administration anymore to tell the truth," he added.
Kagen said he's not had a chance to review Senate Dems' universal health insurance plan yet, but said he's been working to get a national solution to what he called a "crisis" in healthcare.
"I'm working hard to gain access to affordable healthcare for every citizen, no matter where they are in these United States," Kagen said.
