MADISON –Just over one month before the August 14 Democratic primary, Tony Evers is proud to announce three more legislative endorsements for his gubernatorial campaign. State Rep. Tod Ohnstad (D-Kenosha), State Rep. Daniel Riemer (D-Milwaukee) and State Rep. Don Vruwink (D-Milton) have all endorsed the three-time statewide elected State Superintendent.
“I’m pleased to endorse Tony Evers in the race for Governor. In a grueling primary, he has clearly risen to the top, among many fine candidates. More important he has demonstrated his ability to win a statewide election, having won 70 out of 72 counties in his most recent contest. Tony has a long history in Wisconsin as a genuine and capable public servant. That’s what we need to win this race,” Rep. Ohnstad said.
“Wisconsin faces some serious challenges ahead given Scott Walker’s gross mismanagement of our state. We need a governor that is ready to hit the ground running on day one. Tony is the only candidate with statewide executive experience, and he has a strong track record of working with the Legislature to get things done,” said Rep. Riemer.
“I’m supporting Tony Evers for Governor because it’s time for our rural schools and rural communities to once again have a champion in the Governor’s office. Just look around, Scott Walker has left our rural communities behind,” Rep. Vruwink commented. “Tony understands the uphill battles too many rural communities face because he’s lived it. He has the knowledge, relationships and leadership skills to help rural Wisconsin grow and thrive once again.”
In addition to the endorsements of Ohnstad, Riemer and Vruwink, Evers has also been endorsed by former gubernatorial candidate and State Rep. Dana Wachs (D-Eau Claire), State Rep. Sondy Pope (D-Mount Horeb) and State Senator Mark Miller (D-Monona).
