Tommy Thompson says he's confident voters will make the right choice

(WEAU) --Just days before the election, U.S Senate Candidate Tommy Thompson says he's confident voters will make the right choice and vote him to Washington.

I can assure you that if the election goes the right way you are going to see a tremendous amount of investment and opportunities, said Thompson

Thompson along with Governor Scott Walker toured VES Environmental Solutions in Chippewa Falls.

VES designs custom ventilation and lighting systems for agriculture operations, like dairy farms.

Thompson says by investing in companies like VES the economy grows.

But he says there is still a lot of work to be done before.

“There is so much that can be done first off we have to get our finances under control,” said Thompson

Thompson says Governor Walker and Wisconsin are a key example of how to get that done.

He says Walker balanced the budget and is investing in businesses across the state.

"Tapping more markets and put more people to work and that’s is sustainable," said Walker

"So let’s go build Wisconsin and America...it’s not just service jobs its manufacturing jobs and energy jobs its opportunities, "said Thompson

A poll just released by the Marquette University Law School says Democrat Tammy Baldwin's back in the lead.
She's at 47 percent against Republican Tommy Thompson's 43 percent.
