Three members of the Republican Party of Manitowoc County, chairman Don Zimmer, vice chairman Sulynn Moore, and acting treasurer Bonnie Shimulunas, attended the Training Day sponsored by the Republican Party of Wisconsin which occurred on November 14 in Wausau.
One of the highlights of the day was an appearance by Senator Ron Johnson who, as we all know, is locked in a tight battle for reelection against former senator Russ Feingold. As Senator Johnson reminded us, his race against Feingold is going to be a very challenging campaign. The Democratic Party will pull out all stops to defeat Johnson. That is why we Republicans need to rally our voters to get out and vote for Senator Johnson in 2016.
Brad Courtney, the chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin reminded us that Wisconsin has not been won for a presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan did so in 1984. Therefore, much is at stake in 2016. Courtney and Senator Johnson believe that If we can win Wisconsin for our presidential candidate, Johnson’s victory is almost certainly assured as well.
Courtney also introduced to us the current staff at party headquarters in Madison. Several of this dynamic, young staff conducted classes for attendees. I must say, I was impressed by this group of dynamic and knowledgeable young people who included those who will staff our several field offices located throughout the state. Those offices will provide direct assistance to we who will establish campaign offices in each county.

As Wisconsinites, we love our state's natural beauty. Many of us are hunters, like the new Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan. Personally, I'm a fisherman -- and I always enjoy boating and trolling for walleye on Lake Winnebago We all want a pristine environment. Bit we also need to find a balance between protecting our environment while allowing our manufacturing and agricultural industries to thrive - and the liberals in Washington seem to have forgotten that.
A study commissioned by the Small Business Administration showed that it costs Americans $1.7 trillion to comply with federal regulations every year.
And if that wasn't bad enough, the Senate recently voted against an onerous Environmental Protection Agency rule that would give the federal government the power to regulate a puddle in your backyard. That is not a joke --- this rule would give the federal government regulatory authority over 92 percent of the land in our state. This is the kind of government overreach that many agree is a threat to our freedom and economic prosperity.
These out-of-control regulations would strangle family farms with red tape and make it more expensive for manufacturers to create good Wisconsin jobs.
I'm doing my part to fight back against this overreach - but unfortunately Senator Feingold is not only supportive of this absurd overregulation, he actually laid the groundwork for it by championing a similar proposal during his 18 years in the U.S. Senate.
I work for the people of Wisconsin, not for unelected bureaucrats in DC. I know how irrational it is to give the federal government control over 92 percent of the land in our state. And I will continue to fight against this kind of overreach - and I ask you to stand with me.
