MILWAUKEE, WI - A bizarre sight on the campaign trail for U.S. Senate.
Republican candidate Mark Neumann brought a special guest to the Milwaukee Press Club gathering. He named this pig "Mister Favors."
Neumann said, "I think it draws attention to pork barrel spending and just how much waste there is in the federal government. We're obviously doing it to make a point that we need to end pork barrel spending in Washington, D.C. We call him Mr. Favors because when you really look at this pork it really turns out to be favors to constituents from so many members of congress and it's got to be stopped if we want to fix the problems facing this country."
Neumann says he brought the pig to signify wasteful government spending, otherwise known as pork.
