Kreitlow: No time to let up

7th CD candidate Pat Kreitlow told delegates it was no time to let up and that if Wisconsin votes its true values this fall, America will come back strong, secure and stable.

Kreitlow, a former state senator, asked delegates if they believed veterans, college students and seniors should no longer be held hostage in budget proposals. He asked if they believed women should be allowed to make decisions with their doctors in private based on science and not politics, and if they believed a clean Wisconsin attracts jobs better than corporate tax breaks.

“We believe those things because those things are Wisconsin values, and that is why I believe this is no time for surrender,” Kreitlow said. “This is no time for white flags.”

Kreitlow said his campaign has already had some success in pressuring GOP Rep. Sean Duffy on issues like a middle class payroll tax cut that, which Kreitlow said the incumbent was against it before he was for it, and was silent about J.P. Morgan’s losses into pressured to supporting an investigation.

He also said seven days after accepting J.P. Morgan PAC money last year he pressured regulators to weaken rules and allow the return of casino-style banking and favors those at the top while the middle class is stuck with paying the bill.

“That is Congressman Duffy in a nutshell,” Kreitlow said.
