Democrats in our area are hitting the road this week, talking with voters about an issue they say is being neglected in Wisconsin. It's fixing roads.

Members of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin stopped in Wausau Tuesday for the 'Fix Our Roads Tour.' Speakers focused on why they say Governor Scott Walker failed to maintain the state's roads, which they say cost Wisconsinites, on average, $637 annually in car repairs.

They also offered what democratic candidate for governor Tony Evers will do if elected in November.

"If he's elected, Tony Evers is going be an adult in the room. He's going to sit down and work out solutions. I'm not sure exactly where his plans are at this nanosecond," said Rep. Dana Wachs (D-91st Assembly District).

"When it starts to affect people's pocketbooks people pay attention. They want something done, they don't care about the politics, they just want something done," said Roger Putnam with Wisconsin Operating Engineers Local 139.

The tour will also stop in Eau Claire and Milwaukee this week.
