MADISON, WI — Former State Senator Jessica King (D-Oshkosh) has endorsed Kelda Roys in Wisconsin’s gubernatorial race.
“I’m proud to endorse Kelda Roys — it’s time to usher in a new generation of leadership. Kelda’s positive, optimistic plans for a vibrant economy, expanded healthcare coverage, and reinvestment in public education and infrastructure are long overdue,” said King. “Kelda has always served the interests of all Wisconsinites – and she’s committed to making our state a place where young families throughout our state can thrive. Given Kelda’s priorities and track record, I can’t wait for her to be our next governor.”
Roys has previously been endorsed by many national and state organizations and leaders, including NARAL Pro-Choice America, National Organization for Women, Demand Universal Healthcare, and Rep. Amanda Stuck.
“I’m honored to earn the support of Jessica King,” said Roys. “She has been a champion for workers, seniors, and children. As a lawyer and a State Senator, I have always had tremendous respect for her tireless advocacy on behalf of Wisconsinites. As governor, I look forward to continuing that work and making Wisconsin a place of opportunity and fairness again.”
