Pewaukee, Wis. — Former Lt. Gov. Margaret Farrow released the following statement Thursday regarding her support for Leah Vukmir in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race:
“I’ve known Leah Vukmir for many years. During this time I’ve watched her grow into a strong conservative voice, a steady and consistent presence Wisconsin conservatives have come to trust.
“I share the belief, along with many of Leah’s supporters, that she will bring some much-needed grit to Washington. Our next U.S. senator must possess the ability to guide and influence policy with persistence. Leah personifies those qualities, and so much more. Her tenacity for getting the job done is exactly what we need to take on Tammy Baldwin and be successful.
“Her candid nature and passion for moving policy through the lawmaking process has resulted in her frequently leading the charge. Leah has never wavered in her conservative philosophy and has been by our side through it all.
“I personally know her to be incredibly caring and courageous. As a pediatric nurse and military mom who entered politics because she felt the educational needs of her children were not being met — I can say without a doubt — she is in this for the right reasons. And no matter how much she has accomplished, she is never complacent.
“Over the next 11 months, I will encourage Republican primary voters to stand with Leah Vukmir, a candidate we can trust will defend conservatism. Wisconsin voters deserve to be 100-percent confident that the candidate they send to Washington will deliver results. I’m not interested in uncertainty, and with Leah, I know what I’m getting. Consistency matters, and it provides a serious reason for voters to support Leah — a candidate who keeps her word. Leah will not let us down. Without question, she is the clear choice.”
