Wisconsin US House candidate Wilson on knocking doors campaign, healthcare, climate



Democratic US House candidate for Wisconsin's 3rd District, Eric Wilson, in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on Dec. 20, 2023.

Democratic US House candidate for Wisconsin’s 3rd District, Eric Wilson, stopped in the WIZM studio Wednesday for La Crosse Talk PM, as we discussed mental health, healthcare, climate and took a bunch of calls.

Began the show talking about the half-marathon he just ran last weekend to help raise awareness for mental health.

Next, we hit on how little the US House has done in its first year (9:45), and why Wilson feels he’d be more representative of the district than what’s currently in there.

That led to how campaigning is going (15:30), and what folks that he’s talked to, going door to door, are most concerned about — which included healthcare, housing and climate.

From there we got into a conversation about healthcare (16:30), which Wilson has a vast amount of personal and family experience in, and took quite a few calls in relation to that.

And, that’s where we ended the show, talking a bit about climate change (34:30), protecting water, electric vehicle infrastructure.
