High-Profile Republicans Fire Up Wisconsin Voters at Hudson Rally

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson, U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy, former U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman and others spoke at a Saturday rally in Hudson, Wisconsin.

Several high-profile Republicans rallied in at the party's Hudson Victory Center parking lot Saturday in front of hundreds of people in support of presidential candidate Mitt Romney and other GOP candidates.

The early evening event featured the following speakers:

  • Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani
  • Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker
  • U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson
  • Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson
  • U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy and his wife Rachel Campos-Duffy
  • Former U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman
  • Brad Courtney, chairman, Republican Party of Wisconsin
  • State Rep. Dean Knudson of Hudson
  • Virginia State Rep. Barbara Comstock
  • U.S. Rep. Martha Roby of Alabama

Wisconsin is considered a swing state in the presidential race, and it also features a very close races between former Republican Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson and Democratic U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin for Herb Kohl's U.S. Senate seat.

After recent redistricting, Hudson is now in Wisconsin's Seventh Congressional District, and first-term Republican U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy is facing a tough challenge from former Democratic State Sen. Pat Kreitlow.

All the races will be decided on Tuesday, Nov. 6, when voters across the nation head to the polls.

Rep Sean Duffy paid his taxes late 12 times, including this year. He is fighting the farm bill/food stamps, while the poor need to eat. He is fighting equal pay for women, and he is fighting reporductive rights of women. Sean Duffy went to Florida to a private $218,000 a year club- per person, with its own airport and golf course, how much money did they give him? What did they want him to vote for? He signed the pledge to Norquist, instead of just being loyal to the 7th district. Vote for Pat Kreitlow, to end partisan politics!

Right on, Jack! Sean Duffy does NOT represent you and me or the thousands like us. Pat Krietlow will.

Jack Stone, throwing around uninformed comments just makes your candidate look ridiculous so please keep posting. I can't wait to vote for Sean.

"Take a look at Gary Johnson: This is not an election of Romney vs. Obama. This is anti-Obama vs. anti-Romney. No one really likes either candidate. No one is inspired by either of them. As a Republican, clearly Obama is not on your team, but neither is Romney. Certainly not our team leader." Both Romney and Obama will drive full speed towards the cliff. The only difference is Obama will drive a little faster, but it's a negligible difference, and certainly not one worth spending energy on. Our only hope to prevent a bleak dystopian scenario from unfolding is to send a powerful NO!! in the face of the forces that are pushing us there.

That's exactly my point. Politicians meet with all kinds of people in all kinds of places. It's a ridiculous argument to state that because Duffy met people at a posh golf course he is some sort of criminal.

Hey Chad, Have you ever struggled on $174,000 a year like Rep Sean Duffy does? See in his own words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ve3h45tGUiQ&sns=em

you are right...the 25,000 a plate dinners your president hold are catering to the poor, huddled masses... EVERY politician MAKES money (doiing their job) and RAISES money for their campaign...even YOURS....
Chadwick November 05, 2012 at 01:53 PM
So your mad that he makes 174k a year or that he said he is struggling on it? I don't get mad at people who make a lot of money. I strive to become that person. It's a completely different mentality than liberals who want to blame someone else for their own lack of success.
