WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW)--Gubernatorial Candidate Tom Barrett made a stop in Wisconsin Rapids on Thursday. He came to visit a cranberry marsh to show his support for the industry. The Democrat says he plans to partner with the state's farmers.
"Wisconsin is the leading producer of cranberries and 25% of its product is actually exported. Its important, I think, for people to understand the importance of cranberries to our states economy and how important it is to me as Governor of the state to have a strong cranberry industry," says Barrett.
The Milwaukee Mayor vows to put the state government on a financial diet. He's running against republicans Scott walker and Mark Neumann.
