Shilling rallies Dems to undo GOP's damage

With the crowd yelling "check," Senate Dem Leader Jennifer Shilling listed the areas in which she said Republicans have harmed the state.

"We must understand the damage Republicans have done," said Shilling, of La Crosse. "You name it, they've harmed it."

The job of Dems, Shilling said, is to correct those problems in areas such as public education, the UW System, health care, worker training, the environment, and voter and women rights.

"We have gone from the heartbeat of the heartland to having our Democratic values on life support," Shilling said.

She acknowledged Dems have "taken our lumps" in the past five years, but she insisted there is hope for the party and opportunities in elections in 2016, 2018 and 2020. She said it is crucial Dems retake control in the Senate before the 2020 redistricting vote.

"Get ready to dust yourself off," Shilling said, "get up and get back to work."
