MARQUETTE — Republican congressional candidate, Jack Bergman has been on the campaign trail for an arduous six months. The Ramada Inn was the site of his push toward the finish line today.

With election day fast approaching, voters made their way into the Baraga Room. There, a meet and greet with the retired Lieutenant General took place.

“This is the culmination of six months of campaigning; six months of driving around 24,000 square miles of the first district,” said Bergman, “Now people who come here tonight, they’re ready to make their voting decision and they’re here because they probably want to see Jack Bergman in person as opposed to on a campaign ad or TV commercial or whatever.”

Now that they have met him in person, Bergman added, “As one gentlemen told me, he said, ‘I thought you’d be taller.'”

But when it came time to answer the important questions, he wasn’t short with anyone in attendance.

“I look at the world we live in, our grand kids, and think, ‘we can do better.’ Our parents and grand parents came through World War I, World War II, the Great Depression, and left us something good. What are we going to leave our grand kids? That’s why I stepped up,” he proudly exclaimed.

He outlined bullet points: Fiscal responsibility, leadership, constitutionalism, and improvements to education. These ideas make up the structure behind his plan to, “get this country back on track.”

For quite some time after speaking with reporters, Bergman entertained the crowd on hand. Election day is August 2nd.
