HAGER CITY, WI – Over the weekend, Derrick Van Orden, accompanied by State Senate Candidate Dan Kapanke, knocked on the 250,000th door of the campaign. 

WXOW covered this massive achievement on Saturday. Read some excerpts from their reporting below, and find the whole story here.

Members of the party gathered early Saturday morning to get started on their assigned doors for the day. They kicked off the morning with a few speeches from candidates including Dan Kapanke, Derrick Van Orden, and Jerome Gundersen.

Derrick Van Orden, Republican Candidate for U.S. Congress in Wisconsin’s 3rd District, explained why going door-to-door like this is so important.

“There is a 17% greater chance of someone actually going to the polls to vote when they speak to somebody about the candidates and it is very, very important that we enfranchise all of our voters here in the state of Wisconsin and our nation,” said Van Orden. “It’s one of the bedrocks of the foundation of our society is that we get out and actually vote. It’s very, very important.”
