Wall: Fight for Congress starts in 8th CD

Green Bay business consultant Jamie Wall wrapped up the congressional candidates' addresses to the convention by saying the fight for a better Congress "starts right here in northeast Wisconsin."

Wall, who's challenging U.S. Rep. Reid Ribble in the 8th CD, ripped his opponent for signing onto the House GOP budget plan "wholesale."

He vowed to preserve education, help bolster the middle class and fight for Americans' retirement security.

"What's happened to schools in our state over the last year is going to hurt our kids, and it's going to damage our economy in the long run," Wall said.

He said the election this fall is about "whether that ladder up to the American Dream is going to be there for all of us."

And Wall also joked that since Vince Lombardi coached the Green Bay Packers, the team hasn't won a Super Bowl unless the district has been held by a Dem.
