LaDonna Hale Curzon, Host and Executive Producer, Sarah Palin Radio today interviewed US Senatorial candidate Mark Neumann from Wisconsin. Neumann was a member of Congress, and was rated "Wisconsin's Most Conservative Member" of the last 30 years. He was one of the principal architects of the 1998 balanced budget, the first balanced budget in decades. Neumann also spoke about today's recall election in Wisconsin. He said voter turnout is strong and lauded Gov. Scott Walker's cost-cutting measures.
He believes Romney will take Wisconsin, especially if he chooses a conservative running mate. Neumann is a former businessman who is running to stop our government from spending more than what it takes in, balance the budget, and repeal ObamaCare. He wants to pay down the $16 trillion deficit by structuring it in a manner similar to a 30-year mortgage.
He said he is running to do the right thing for the country, not as a Republican or Democrat. He had taken on his own party and voted against a GOP-sponsored bill, because he did not know where they money involved was coming from. The move got him kicked off the Appropriations Committee. Neumann also said Newt Gingrich had threatened that voting against the bill would political career suicide. Neumann ultimately was reinstated to the Appropriations Committee and added to the Budget Committee, being the first freshman Representative to serve on both committees.
Neumann is an American Grizzlies United (AGU)-supported candidate.
