On the other side of the aisle, democrats are having a party to celebrate… a party.

The Portage County democrats had their annual picnic in Pfiffner Park in Stevens Point Sunday afternoon.

Several speakers, democratic candidates and lots of food were on hand for the picnic. Organizers say it's as important as ever during this close presidential election year.

"We're here to celebrate being democrats, being, being progressives and know what we have to face in this year's," said Patrick Blum, a Portage County democrat.

Blum compares this year's election with another very close race from the past, that being the 1960 election between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon.
