MENASHA (WLUK)--It's a tight race for the two Republicans looking to take Tammy Baldwins seat.

Both Republican candidates visited Northeast Wisconsin Saturday searching for last minute votes to hopefully push them through Tuesday's primary election.

“You don’t send a member of the political class to Washington to fix the problems created by the political class,” said Nicholson.

Saturday, Nicholson went door to door reminding people that he isn’t your average politician, comparing himself to the likes of Donald Trump and Ronald Raegan.

"It's going to take an outsider to beat Tammy Baldwin," said Nicholson.

This week he will first face Leah Vukmir in the midterm elections. Vukmir made a stop at the Shawano Republican Party Office for one final rally, and she stood by her political affiliations.

“With Governor Walker, our conservative members of the legislature the republican party has turned our state around,” said Vukmir. “So, to call me a member of the political class it means you're calling the governor that, it means you're calling all the legislatures that've changed our state and quite frankly all the grassroots people who supported us through it all.”

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin said in a statement, "No matter who wins the Republican U.S Senate primary, Wisconsinites lose out."

They also said both Vukmir and Nicholson work for "special interest corporate backers."

The election is Tuesday August 14.
