Conventions over, less than two months until Election Day


Wisconsin has been a big focus in presidential campaigning this year. Now that the conventions are over, how are both sides feeling about their candidates?

"I'm very very much enthusiastic about the party and the platform we presented and the message of our president to move our country forward," said Christine Bremer Muggli.

Business owner Christine Bremer Muggli was at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. And she says President Obama is making the right moves.

"The vision of President Obama is moving forward to invest in education and manufacturing," said Bremer Muggli. 

But Republicans say otherwise. They gathered at G3 Industries in Mosinee Friday. IROW Recycling Owner Corey Tomczyk was there, and he says President Obama's policies hurt his business.

"As economic activity slows, our recycling business slows as well," said Tomczyk. 

Republicans say the president hasn't lived up to his promises.

"The rhetoric and headlines that Obama administration put out in the media are nothing more than empty catch phrases and slogans, and what the president has proven though is he has no plan of action," said Tomczyk.

Both sides had the chance to make their cases in front of national audiences. Republicans met in Tampa, while Democrats just wrapped up in Charlotte. Now, the real campaigning begins, as Election Day is less than two months away.
