MADISON, WI — Today, business executive and candidate for governor Andy Gronik announced his endorsement of Kelda Roys. Gronik’s support comes less than a week after EMILY’s List endorsed Kelda and continues adding to her growing momentum.
“It is my honor to endorse Kelda Roys for governor of Wisconsin,” said Andy Gronik. “I stood on that stage with all of those wonderful candidates – I like and respect every one of them, but that’s not the point. We need to choose the candidate that will beat Scott Walker in November. I believe that candidate is Kelda Roys and I strongly encourage everyone to check out her campaign now.”
Roys has previously been endorsed by many national and state organizations and leaders, including EMILY’s List, NARAL Pro-Choice America, National Organization for Women, Feminist Majority, Demand Universal Healthcare, Moms Demand Action, #VoteProChoice, Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa, Rep. Amanda Stuck, former Sen. Jess King, and dozens of local elected officials.
“I’m thrilled and honored to be endorsed by Andy Gronik,” said Roys. “After spending months on the trail with Andy, I have come to deeply respect his passion for making Wisconsin better, his business acumen, his intellect, and his innovative policy ideas. Andy is supporting me because he knows I am the strongest candidate to win in November and build an economy in Wisconsin that works for everyone across our great state.”
“I appreciate Andy’s call for those sitting on the sidelines of this crucial primary to support my campaign now to restore opportunity and fairness to Wisconsin,” added Roys. “It’s time to come together around the candidate with a track record of progressive accomplishments, the candidate with the momentum and ability to excite voters across the state, the candidate who can win in November, and the candidate who is ready to be governor on day one. Andy Gronik knows I am that candidate.”
Andy Gronik will be hosting a fundraiser for Kelda Roys on Saturday, June 30th. Details forthcoming.
