Accompanying Steil was the man he hopes to succeed in Congress: House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.
Ryan urged voters to vote for Steil and other Republican candidates to keep the current policies going.
Ryan said Mars Cheese Castle is “a great story” of a family business growing expanding the number of employees.
“This is the story of our economy,” Ryan said.
“Of a great family business giving great jobs to people selling cheese at discounts to Wisconsinites, and at markups to people from Illinois,” he quipped.
Ryan also urged voters to vote for incumbent Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, whose administration he credits for pushing Wisconsin into a better economy.
“These successes don’t happen by accident,” Ryan said. “We’re seeing an economic renaissance in America … we have things heading in the right direction.”
