Wausau WI- Today, Mary Hoeft endorsed Brian Ewert’s run for Congress at the Marathon Democratic Headquarters. Her full statement is below.
“It is my honor to endorse Brian Ewert who is running for Congress in the 7thCongressional District, one of the most gerrymandered districts in the country. Although it was once evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans, Democrats now make up only 40% of voters in the district. Brian Ewert can still win. He has the intelligence, compassion, and drive needed to unite voters, regardless of party, on matters crucial to their lives and the lives of their children.
Every family, Republican or Democrat, wants and deserves affordable health care. Dr. Ewert has dedicated his life to health care. As a kidney doctor, he has witnessed the financial destruction uninsured families have endured. He will do all in his power to unite congress on a plan that provides affordable health care for all.
The lives of every family, Republican or Democrat, depend on clean air. Brian Ewert has listened to global scientists who say we must reduce carbon dioxide emissions destroying our air. Why has Sean Duffy chosen to ignore those warnings? Companies spewing carbon dioxide into the air you and I breathe are companies that are putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into Sean Duffy’s reelection coffers.
While Sean Duffy works aggressively in support of the wealthy, Dr. Brian Ewert will work aggressively to restore our rapidly disappearing middle class.
Dr. Brian Ewert has my vote. I hope he has yours.”
