WAOW, Wisconsin (WAOW) — With just two weeks to go before Election Day, voters have made known an issue that’s important to them.
On Monday night, candidates from four key constituencies — Sen. Ron Johnson, Rep. Tom Tiffany, Senator Richard Orthman of the 7th Congressional District, and Wisconsin’s 29th and 85th congressional districts — were elected. Gathered at Wausau.
All candidates presented their platforms to dozens of voters, covering important topics such as abortion, inflation, immigration and labor shortages.
Voters said they were happy that topics important to them were being discussed.
“I think the thing that needs to be addressed, and is already being addressed, is inflation. I also think that education could probably come down in price,” voter George Truman said.
Others wanted some topics covered at all.
“What no one has mentioned at all is global warming, which is looming, whether we like it or not,” said Gary Fargott.
But despite the topic of discussion, voters are happy to have the opportunity to better understand who they’re voting for.
“Mostly, I’m here to find out who’s running and what they stand for, just to educate myself,” voter Diane McMahan said.
When it comes time to poll, she has only one thing to say.
“We know very well what each side has to offer,” McMahan said.
Other topics discussed included gender identity and clean water in Wisconsin.
