EAU CLAIRE – Former Congressman Dave Obey announced his endorsement of Dana Wachs for Governor of Wisconsin.
This major endorsement is the most prominent yet in the race for Governor and clear sign of momentum for Wachs’ campaign.
“Today I have the pleasure of announcing my endorsement of Dana Wachs to be Wisconsin’s next governor,” said Obey. “Dana is the kind of leader Wisconsin needs, someone who will represent all of Wisconsin because he will work for the greater good of everybody, not a select few. In Dana we have a proud progressive who has the background we need to win statewide.
“For 40 years I served Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District, so I know a thing or two about covering some wide territory. Dana has been taking his campaign to every corner of the state, and he’ll do so again and again.
“I’m looking forward to working together to get this thoughtful, gutsy, savvy and fair-minded man elected as the next governor of Wisconsin.”
“Dave Obey is a Wisconsin institution and I am honored and humbled to have endorsement,” said Wachs. “I look forward to fighting alongside Dave for Wisconsin’s working families.”
