Brookfield, Wis. — Wisconsin businessman Eric Hovde on Tuesday announced his enthusiastic endorsement of nurse Leah Vukmir for U.S. Senate on The Mark Belling Show.
“I am confident that by supporting Leah, she will not change her positions once elected on the important issues facing our country like cutting spending and seeking to balance our country’s budget” Hovde said. “Because of her consistent and verifiable record on behalf of Wisconsin voters, it gives me the assurance she will stand strong in addressing our country problems, and not become like so many politicians that say one thing and do another. Leah has my support, and I believe she is the right person to challenge Tammy on her very liberal positions.”
“Eric’s support means a lot, and I’m thrilled to add him to my growing list of Wisconsin endorsements,” Leah said. “As a strong Wisconsin business leader, I appreciate his unwavering and consistent commitment to getting government out of the way so businesses and workers can succeed. He — and Wisconsinites all across the state — can count on me to cut taxes and spending, fiercely defend the lives of the unborn and repeal Obamacare once and for all.”
Hovde is the CEO of Hovde Properties and was a candidate in the 2012 race for U.S. Senate.
Leah Vukmir is a nurse, military mom and conservative with a proven record who has stood with Gov. Walker in cutting taxes and implementing bold reforms. She is running for the U.S. Senate to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington. She currently serves as a state senator from Brookfield.
