WI-01 Rob Zerban Campaign Kickoff Tour Highlights

Written by  Zerban for Congress

When I began this campaign, I made a commitment to serve as a voice of the people- not of corporations.

I have been putting that into action. In the last few weeks, I have been working overtime to kickoff my campaign with rallies across the district.

Paul Ryan listens to lobbyists. I am committed to making sure real people have a real voice in this campaign.

During the tour, I visited all 6 counties in the district. We started in Racine County, and went to Walworth, Waukesha, Milwaukee, Rock, and Kenosha Counties. I met over 1,000 constituents in my district and the energy is hard to miss.

There were no stadium tours, no charges to get in, and no PowerPoint presentations! My goal is to show voters what real representation looks like.

I usually get up at 5:30 AM and don't get back until after 10:00 PM, and I enjoy every minute of it. I am used to hard work. My constituents are used to hard work too. They know that hard work pays off and our grassroots work is elevating the debate and building the foundation for a winning race.

We are bringing in Democrats and Independents, but we are also reaching beyond. More Republicans are joining our campaign every day because they understand the GOP and Paul Ryan have abandoned their principles and lost their way. Everyone understands it is time for new leadership.

This tour is driven by a simple idea- if every voter met Paul Ryan and me, I don't think Ryan would get a vote other than his own. We are running a campaign that gets out in front of the people but I need your help- please make a contribution today!

My biggest thanks go out to everyone who volunteered, attended, and helped make this possible.

The GOP reminds us why we need to practice democracy daily- we have a lot at stake! We have no choice but to win. Let's outwork them, let's outorganize them, and let's win this race for the people!

    "He had a minor in economics," Rob Zerban says of his opponent. "What experience does he have to say that he's the great budget oracle?" "The people of the First District can see where that budget impacts their lives. Their bridges start to crumble.

    Typically during an election cycle, it often comes down to voting for the lesser of two evils. You choose the one who supports the issues most meaningful to you – or at least doesn’t outright defy them. It can be difficult to encounter a candidate who personifies the conviction and integrity you would imagine only in a perfect political world.
