Rep. Duffy Energizing Voters Submitted: 10/13/2012
Rhinelander - With only a few weeks left until the election, politicians are taking every opportunity to get their message to voters.

Rep. Duffy was in Rhinelander today to rally support at the Oneida County Republican Headquarters.

Rep.Tom Tiffany and 34th State Assembly Candidate Rob Swearingen were also in attendance.

The Republican candidates came out to support each other and energize residents to vote for their ideals November 6th.
"More bailouts more stimulus. More government, more regulations, its more of the same. And were coming out with a set of ideas that are based on American founding principles," said the 7th District Congressman.

Duffy was also in Wausau and Laona Saturday.

Talking with voters, he said the economy is their top priority.

Duffy said, "We voted for well over 20 jobs bills that I think are important. If passed, well get this economy moving. Over the past four years thats been very challenging. Weve seen lack luster growth and thats had a huge impact on people in central and northern Wisconsin."

In addition to job creation, Duffy said hes dedicated to lowering gas prices by supporting the Keystone Pipeline which would bring oil in Canada to the U.S.

Duffy is running against Democrat Pat Kreitlow.

Kreitlow will be in the Northwoods Sunday and well have a full report on his congressional plan on 10 p.m. Sunday broadcast.
