7th CD candidate slams money in politics

Joel Lewis, one of two Dems running for the 7th CD, said people of all backgrounds are sick of politicians spending half of their time making fundraising calls.

He said that's what has let U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Weston, finish the most recent reporting period with $1.1 million in the bank.

"Who do you think we represent when we have all this money in DC?" he asked. "Who do you think they’re voting for? And that has to change."

Mary Hoeft, who is running for the seat, could not be at the convention. Susan Hansen spoke on behalf of the UW-Barron County professor and former Rice Lake School Board member. Hansen said Hoeft is running so the 7th CD can once again be represented by someone who cares about the middle class.

“This is Dave Obey’s seat after all,” Hansen said.
