Kohl: Primary will pay off for Dems

The hard fought primary in Wisconsin will pay of for Democrats in November, U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl said told delegates and guests today.

"As we know in Wisconsin our primary was hard fought and very pivotal," Kohl said. "The excitement of the primary helped build our party and it will pay off in key state races when we keep Wisconsin a true blue state and take back the state Assembly and strengthen the majority in the state Senate."

Kohl said both Obama and Clinton supporters should be proud of the candidates and must now come together.

"People everywhere are energized, they're ready to work for Democrats, they're ready for change and they are ready to stop John McCain from being elected and serving George Bush's third term," Kohl said.

After eight years of Bush, Kohl said Americans are ready for change. He said Obama will invest in America's people, make healthcare affordable, bring back good jobs and make America safer by "building our allies instead of rallying our enemies."

Kohl said this is going to be a good year for Democrats in Wisconsin and nationally.

"We're going head off into a new and exciting era, led by Democrats, led by Barack Obama, and together we will make this a much greater country," Kohl said.
