STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -

Wisconsin candidates are hot on the campaign trail ahead of Tuesday. 

Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Russ Feingold made a stop at the Portage County Democratic headquarters in Stevens Point on Saturday.

Feingold is going up against incumbent Senator Ron Johnson.

Feingold kicked off a canvassing event in the city and spoke about why he believes the area is a vital part of the state. 

"[Stevens Point is] very important in elections, but it's also a real driving force in everything; from environmental issues to university issues to agriculture," Feingold said. "This is a really exciting part of our state." 

Feingold said he would strive to help working families and not side with big business.
