Sen. Wanggaard: Statement on Peter Barca’s Resignation as Assembly Democratic Leader

CONTACT: Van Wanggaard, 608-266-1832

“I’m proud to count Peter Barca as a true friend. Peter is a rare breed in Madison, a politician who can disagree and advocate for his position without being disagreeable. He understands how to agree to disagree. It is unfortunate, yet ultimately predictable, that Assembly Democrats are seeking a new leader because he exercised those principles by voting for the Foxconn legislation.

“While Assembly Democrats are losing his voice representing their caucus, I am glad Kenosha and Racine counties get to keep his voice representing them.”
