Nelson hits Lasee, Gallagher

Outagamie County Exec Tom Nelson came out swinging at his GOP opponents for the 8th CD.

The Dem candidate said one Republican -- state Sen. Frank Lasee, R-De Pere -- spends his time in Racine and rents his northeast Wisconsin home through AirBnB. The other, Mike Gallagher, moved to Wisconsin when he saw a possibility there would an open congressional seat, Nelson said.

"I don't need a roadmap to find my way around this district," he said.

Nelson also talked up his background in Outagamie County, saying he balanced mulitple budgets in a row despite dwindling state resources. And he said he got the work done by reaching across the aisle, something he said he would do if elected.

And, Nelson said, he did the same thing with retiring 8th CD U.S. Rep. Reid Ribble, R-Sherwood. Nelson said the two have one clear point of common ground.

"Neither of us will be voting for Donald Trump," Nelson said, "under any circumstances."

Listen to Nelson's speech.
