APPLETON (WKOW) -- The candidates in Wisconsin's U.S. Senate race were on the campaign trail in Appleton on Friday.
Democrat Tammy Baldwin and Republican Tommy Thompson separately addressed the Disabled American Veterans on Friday.
Baldwin addressed the group first, discussing the importance of taking care of America's veterans.
"We all know full well that budget cuts are necessary, but I believe they should not come at the expense of returning servicemen and women," Baldwin said.
Later in the day, Thompson agreed, by pledging his loyalty.
"I will always be there whether you support me or not, because it is a commitment of mine as a citizen to give my best to those people who have given so much," Thompson said.
The latest Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday showed Baldwin with a 48 percent to 44 percent lead over Thompson. She held a nine-point lead in the same poll two weeks ago.
The two candidates will face off in their second debate on Thursday, October 18th
