“I am honored to endorse Leah Vukmir for the United States Senate,” Rice said. “Leah has the vision and experience to help Wisconsinites prosper. As the daughter of immigrants, Leah understands the challenges working-class families across the state face and I know she will be the strong advocate these families deserve.”

Rice continued, “Growing up in Wisconsin, Leah learned progress comes from hard work, compassion, and a dedication towards helping others. Those values have driven Leah throughout her career, from her time as a nurse through her distinguished career in the State Senate. Leah has earned a reputation for her courage to stand up and lead, fighting hard to make sure Wisconsinite have healthcare and good jobs. She is a strong leader who will ensure Wisconsin leads the way into the future. I am pleased to support her candidacy for the Senate.”

Leah responded, “I am so thankful for Secretary Rice’s endorsement. As a military mom whose son was inspired to serve after 9/11, I know we must show peace through strength, put America first in foreign policy and protect our nation from terrorists. Wisconsinites can be sure that as their U.S. Senator I will listen to and fight for them in Washington.”
