Democratic congressional candidate Julie Lassa called Thursday for tighter restrictions on agricultural imports.
Lassa, a state senator from Stevens Point, faces Republican Sean Duffy in the 7th Congressional District.
She said foreign imports of ginseng and milk protein weaken American farmers' ability to compete in those markets.
"This affects entire communities' economies," Lassa said. "When farmers are doing well, they support the local cooperative, feed mill and machinery suppliers. It's a multiplier effect for Wisconsin."
The details released are part of Lassa's larger jobs plan, which condemns foreign trade agreements and encourages programs to support small businesses.
