MADISON (AP) -- Republican candidate for governor Mark Neumann has delivered petitions he says were signed by more than 5,000 people opposing the health care reform legislation in Congress.
Neumann dropped off the petitions Monday at the Milwaukee office of U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis. Neumann says copies of the petitions, which were signed on by people through his campaign Web site, will be dropped off at the offices of Wisconsin's other members of Congress as well.
Neumann says the petitions show that people are vehemently opposed to the health care reform being pushed by Democrats in Congress. He says the proposal would result in higher taxes and more spending.
Neumann is being challenged for the Republican nomination by Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker.
