PEWAUKEE, WI — Rep. Glenn Grothman, who represents Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District, endorsed Leah Vukmir for U.S. Senate Friday at a campaign rally.

“Every step of the way, Leah has taken the hard route, not afraid to make the fundamental changes we need in this state," Grothman said. “Behind the scenes, she’s not afraid to fight, and I know when the doors are closed, Leah Vukmir is not going to be a doormat. To beat Sen. Baldwin this fall, it is so important that we fire up, and all get prepared to do all we can to support the woman I’m endorsing for U.S. Senate — Leah Vukmir.”

“I’m thankful to have Glenn on my team,” Leah said. “He has been a leader fighting to balance our budget, get people off food stamps and into family-supporting jobs, and defund Planned Parenthood. I can’t wait to work with him to take our Wisconsin values to DC.”

Leah Vukmir is a nurse, military mom and conservative with a proven record who has stood with Gov. Walker in cutting taxes and implementing bold reforms. Endorsed by the Republican Party of Wisconsin, Leah is running for the U.S. Senate to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington.

kelda-roys-for-govRoys’ plan focuses on improving healthcare, education, wages,  and opportunity for working families - beginning on day one of her administration. Outagamie County Executive Thomas Nelson adds his endorsement.


GREEN BAY, WI - Today, Kelda Roys announced the agenda she will be campaigning on in the primary - Building Wisconsin’s Future: An Agenda for Working Families, as well as the endorsement of Outagamie County Executive Thomas Nelson.

tom-nelson“I have known Kelda for almost 15 years and there is no better advocate and champion for working families,” said Outagamie County Executive Thomas Nelson, who announced his endorsement of Roys at the press conference. “Working together, we took on some of the biggest, most powerful special interests – and won. I can say in no uncertain terms that you can count on Kelda to get the job done: to return our state to its progressive roots, to ensure affordable health care for all Wisconsinites, to build an economy that works for our families, and to make our public schools, once again, the envy of the nation. I am delighted and honored to endorse Kelda Roys, the next governor of our state.”

Nelson’s endorsement came as Roys unveiled Building Wisconsin’s Future, her agenda for working families. Families across Wisconsin are falling behind as the prices of health care, child care, higher education and prescription medication continue to rise, while wages remain stagnant and schools suffer under massive budget cuts. Kelda Roys’ Building Wisconsin’s Future agenda will empower families by raising wages, lowering costs, and investing in Wisconsinites all across our state.

Building Wisconsin’s Future has three pillars:  education, healthcare, and economic security:

  • Renew Wisconsin’s Commitment to Public Education

    • Ensure universal access to affordable, high-quality early childhood education

    • Pass free tuition to two-year universities and technical colleges

    • Enable Wisconsinites to refinance their student loan debt

    • Restore the deep cuts made to Wisconsin’s public schools and UW system

  • Expand Healthcare Access & Affordability

    • Reduce the prices of prescription medication

    • Make BadgerCare a public option to reduce prices and increase access

    • Accept the ACA’s Medicaid Expansion to save money and create jobs

    • Expand access to mental and behavioral health services and rural healthcare

  • Build an Economy for Workers & Families

    • Ensure women can fully and equally participate in the economy by defending the right to choose

    • Allow Wisconsinites to buy-in to a stable public pension system

    • Pass universal Paid Family & Medical Leave

    • Raise wages by increasing the minimum wage to $15/hour over time

    • Restore workers’ rights to collectively bargain

    • Eliminate WEDC and restore a public commerce agency focused on Wisconsin-owned small and growing businesses and homegrown innovators

“I’m running for governor because I have a track record of delivering for working families, and Wisconsin needs that now more than ever,” said Roys. “We can restore opportunity and fairness to Wisconsin, making our state a place where every child, and every family, can thrive.”

mandela-barnesFormer Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate says Mandela is an experienced leader with strong progressive values.


MILWAUKEE, WI - In my campaign for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, I traveled all over our state. I consistently heard one clear message: Wisconsin’s current leadership is taking us backward. Working people and families are hurting, and we need smart trailblazers with a clear vision to give every Wisconsinite a brighter future.

tim-burnsThat’s why I’m proud to endorse Mandela Barnes for Lieutenant Governor.

Mandela is an experienced leader with strong progressive values. Recent events in Washington and Madison have shown just how important this election is for preserving civil rights, protecting our most vulnerable and standing up for workers.

Mandela has my support, and he needs yours too. Will you join me and make a contribution to his campaign today?

He is the candidate we need to help elect Democrats up and down the ballot and gives us the best chance to defeat Scott Walker this November. Mandela has worked with state legislators and advocacy groups across the nation to score progressive victories and beat back right-wing attacks.

I’m ready for a Lieutenant Governor who knows how to fight against policies that hurt working families and one who will not stop until we have a Wisconsin that works for everyone.

In solidarity,

Tim Burns
