Our Revolution Endorses Tim Burns for Supreme Court
WASHINGTON– Our Revolution on Thursday announced their endorsement of Tim Burns for Wisconsin Supreme Court. Tim is also endorsed by the Our Revolution local group, Our Wisconsin Revolution.
“Tim’s working-class background makes him a champion for all of Wisconsin’s working families,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. “On the Supreme Court, he’ll fight for everyone no matter what their race, religion, education, or creed. He will protect voting rights, workers’ rights, the environment, and level the playing field for small businesses. Right now there are people who are fighting to take away our most valued right–the right to vote. The greatest equalizer we have in this country is the right to vote. If we want better policies, we need better elected officials and that starts at the ballot box–and for Wisconsin voters that starts with electing Tim Burns to the Supreme Court.”
“Tim Burns represents true Wisconsin values,” added Our Revolution Wisconsin Co-Chairs Terrance Warthen and Sarah Lloyd. “Those values, which are increasingly absent from our judiciary, are exactly why Our Wisconsin Revolution endorsed our member, Tim Burns, for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. As an early Bernie Sanders supporter, Tim is one of us. He knows the importance of building a people-powered government. A vote for Tim Burns represents a return of government in Wisconsin to the interests of the people over corporate and big-money interests. That’s exactly why our members voted resoundingly to support him in the February 20 Primary.”
Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates up and down the ballot, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
