He also says our welfare system is broke and notes over 800,000 people in Wisconsin are on food stamps. He would like to see drug testing for those on welfare. He also supports right-to-work and school accountability legislation. Duey Stroebel and Tiffany Koehler are the other two candidates for the 20th State Senate seat. The winner of the Tuesday, February 17th primary is unopposed in April.
