tony_eversTuesday night's win is a victory for all of Wisconsin says DPW's Laning.

MADISON - The following is a statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin chair Martha Laning on Tony Evers’s and Mandela Barnes’s victory:

martha-laning“Tonight, Wisconsin turns a new page. Under Tony Ever’s leadership, Wisconsin will once again strive to be a state where everyone has a fair shot to get ahead and make a good life for themselves. Today we leave behind the politics of divide and conquer and chart a new future where we invest in each other’s success because we all do better when we all do better.

“Tonight’s win is a victory for all of Wisconsin. Wisconsinites have voted for a vision of our state where everyone has affordable, quality health care, where our schools are fully funded and where every hardworking Wisconsinite has the opportunity to get ahead. These are our Wisconsin values, and Tony Evers will be their champion. I cannot wait to see the future we leave for our families and our children with Tony Evers as our governor.

“We are incredibly grateful to the volunteers who gave their all to elect Democratic leadership. Victories like tonight would not be possible without your activism and energy, and we hope you will continue to mobilize and organize with us as we continue the fight for our values.”
