GREEN BAY, WI--It's the final stretch on the campaign trail for politicians with November 6th just a little more than a week away. Fans at the Packers game can't forget it's election season with politicians tailgating left and right angling for their votes.
It was a hectic day at Lambeau Field for both parties. Paul Ryan's brother Tobin Ryan and Republican Senator Ron Johnson out tailgating. For the Democrats Jamie Wall running for Congress and Tammy Baldwin running for Senate, all making their final push for votes.
Politicians, campaign signs and tour buses are not usually a common site at Lambeau, but Sunday everyone had the same idea: get people out to vote
"It is so great to be here at Lambeau Field to be able to greet so many people and just remind them early voting is available now" said Tammy Baldwin.
Candidates for local races are making their push, shaking hands with thousands of voters hoping to up their chances.
"People tune in as you get close to the election. And you've seen a lot of tv ads. But this a chance to go and meet voters face to face" said Jamie Wall.
And the presidential race comes to Lambeau too with Tobin Ryan --Paul Ryan's brother-- in town.
"Its wonderful seeing such a ground swell of support particularly at this time of the campaign where you have so much momentum" said Tobin Ryan.
Both presidential candidates are scheduled to be in Wisconsin this week, a sign our swing state is a major player in deciding the election. President Obama is scheduled to be in Green Bay Tuesday and Mitt Romney in Milwaukee Monday.
"I'm asking everyone to talk to their friends their family their neighbors about what is at stake in this election" said Ron Johnson.
Both parties hope visits with Packers fans will influence the election.
