Democrats respond to political divide with Republicans


We talked with Democrats from central Wisconsin about the political divide.

They agree both parties need to work together.

"When everyone votes the party line or else and I say that for both sides, it's really hard to make compromise in order to get things done, we see that nationally and statewide," said Dorothy Miller, the Marathon County Democratic Party Chair. "So do I think there's a chance to work together, yes, if the people tell them they better."

"Our job is to represent the people back home, whether they're Democrats or Republicans when we go to Madison we have to work together, we have to do what is the greatest good for the greatest amount of people and that is putting aside political differences and passing good sound public policy that is free market that allows for local control and freedom of choice, " said State Representative, Amy Sue Vruwink.

The state Democratic convention will be held next month in Oconomowoc.
