Presidential candidate tours of the state came to focus on Oshkosh Friday, as the Republican frontrunner and a Democratic hopeful made stops.
Arizona Senator John McCain told the crowd at the EAA that national security is a major challenge, and both parties have to work together.
The GOP candidate says the federal government needs to be more fiscally responsible, and eliminate pork-barrel spending. He says Republicans have their work cut out for them because spending has been allowed to get out of control.
Meanwhile, Democratic hopeful Barack Obama spoke to a crowd of thousands on the UW-Oshkosh campus. He said that, if he is elected president, he would do away with the tax cuts the Bush administration wants to make permanent and would transfer that money to others. He outlined a planned tax credit for workers making under $75,000 a year.
Obama also said one of his top priorities would be to re-focus the war on terror on Afghanistan, and getting out of Iraq.
Both candidates made stops in several other areas today, as they continue to campaign in Wisconsin.
