Inspired by her family, local political offices made an impact on her political career.

“I found myself walking into my local GOP headquarters where I picked up a clipboard, I picked up a phone, picked up a bag of literature and went door to door. So this is how I began and I’ve never forgotten how important that work is,” Vukmir adds.

After Vukmir finished in La Crosse she continued her tour through Wisconsin in Eau Claire.
