Tony Evers talks prescription drug costs, recent poll findings

WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers stopped in Wausau Wednesday afternoon.

He talked about his plan to reduce prescription drug costs if elected. It involves regulating those costs to hold pharmaceutical companies accountable.

“Obviously people have to make a profit. I get that,” said Evers. “But if it seems excessive, we will have the ability to actually fine those companies and return that money to the people who have been impacted by this.”

Evers also commented on the recent Marquette Law poll that placed Governor Walker and Evers at a near tie. The Democratic candidate said the poll results aren’t surprising.

“That’s why we spend so much time criss-crossing the state,” said Evers. “Making sure that people understand that we have a vision for the future that they can count on. And, frankly, just like we talked about in there, we actually have solutions for the people of Wisconsin also.”

News 9 reached out to Walker for comment, but he declined.
