Leah promises to bring the Wisconsin way to the Senate
Brookfield, Wis. – Conservative Republican and State Sen. Leah Vukmir announced her candidacy for the U.S. Senate by releasing a new video Thursday.

“I first got into politics because of my kids,” Leah said. “I challenged the school system so my children could have the education they deserved, and that’s why I’m running today. If you want to change things, you need to stand up and lead.
“As a nurse, it is in my nature to take action when things need to get done. I stood with Gov. Walker and real conservatives to enact successful reforms that keep jobs here in Wisconsin, keep more of your hard earned money in your pocket, and make our communities better places to raise a family.
“And, in the face of liberal intimidation tactics, I’ve kept up that fight to make our state a better, safer, and more prosperous place for my children and yours.
“The people I’ve spoken to from across our state believe Tammy Baldwin would rather stand with liberal Democrats and Washington elites than listen to what is important to hard-working Wisconsinites.
“The Senate desperately needs someone who will never back down — a proven, consistent conservative who understands the type of determination it takes to finish the job. I intend to bring the Wisconsin way of working hard and never giving up straight to Washington.”
