When I began this campaign, I made a commitment to serve as a voice of the people- not of corporations.

I have been putting that into action. In the last few weeks, I have been working overtime to kickoff my campaign with rallies across the district.

Check out my new video!

Paul Ryan listens to lobbyists. I am committed to making sure real people have a real voice in this campaign.

During the tour, I visited all 6 counties in the district. We started in Racine County, and went to Walworth, Waukesha, Milwaukee, Rock, and Kenosha Counties. I met over 1,000 constituents in my district and the energy is hard to miss.

There were no stadium tours, no charges to get in, and no PowerPoint presentations! My goal is to show voters what real representation looks like.

I usually get up at 5:30 AM and don't get back until after 10:00 PM, and I enjoy every minute of it. I am used to hard work. My constituents are used to hard work too. They know that hard work pays off and our grassroots work is elevating the debate and building the foundation for a winning race.

We are bringing in Democrats and Independents, but we are also reaching beyond. More Republicans are joining our campaign every day because they understand the GOP and Paul Ryan have abandoned their principles and lost their way. Everyone understands it is time for new leadership.

This tour is driven by a simple idea- if every voter met Paul Ryan and me, I don't think Ryan would get a vote other than his own. We are running a campaign that gets out in front of the people but I need your help- please make a contribution today!

My biggest thanks go out to everyone who volunteered, attended, and helped make this possible.

The GOP reminds us why we need to practice democracy daily- we have a lot at stake! We have no choice but to win. Let's outwork them, let's outorganize them, and let's win this race for the people!

Thank you,
Rob Zerban
Congressional Candidate

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
