Congressional candidates make final pitches in Northwoods
NORTHWOODS - Candidates for Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District special election are making their final pitches to voters Monday - just one day before the primaries.

The winners of the Republican and Democratic races will face each other on the May 12th special election.
Tricia Zunker spent part of her day at Nicolet College in Rhinelander, which offers liberal arts and technical degrees. She says she wanted to learn from college leaders about how she can best support the trades, in Northern Wisconsin.

"We don't live in this world where college is for everyone," said Zunker. "We need people in all facets of society for a thriving society. There's really great jobs in the highly-skilled and technical fields."


Republican candidate Jason Church also on the campaign trail in Rhinelander this morning. He was speaking to voters at the Dinky Diner along with U.S. Rep. Jack Bergman.

The military veteran had a lot to say about some recent attack ads, arguing that he's too liberal.

"It's false, it's twisted narratives, but that's what you get from people who want to do anything to move up in office and hold on to power," said Church. 

Church's opponent State Senator Tom Tiffany is rallying with supporters Monday night in Minocqua, ahead of the big day.

Democrat Lawrence Dale is knocking on doors in Northern Wisconsin.

Polls open at 7 a.m. - just make sure you bring a state issued ID to cast your ballot.

If you're not already registered, make sure to also bring proof of residence like a utility bill, for same-day registration. A Wisconsin issued state ID can also serve as proof of residence.
