‘Leah has stood with us every step of the way on this journey. Now, it’s time for us to stand with her.’
Brookfield, Wis. — Speaker Paul Ryan and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner endorsed Leah Vukmir for U.S. Senate on Monday morning, making the announcement with an op-ed in Right Wisconsin.
“I am so humbled to have the endorsement of Speaker Ryan and Congressman Sensenbrenner,” Leah said. “With their leadership, so many important conservative reforms pass the House. Unfortunately, they stall in the Senate because of Tammy Baldwin’s partisan obstruction. Wisconsinites can trust me to go to Washington and cut taxes, defend the unborn and protect our Constitution because that’s what I’ve done here with Scott Walker.”
Speaker Paul Ryan: “I’m proud to endorse Leah Vukmir for the United States Senate. She is a longtime friend, a conservative ally, and the right person to take-on Tammy Baldwin this fall. Leah has proven that she’s committed to expanding opportunity and challenging the status quo, and our state deserves that kind of leadership in the Senate. She will be a great partner to Ron Johnson and will fight tirelessly to make Washington work more like Wisconsin.”
Congressman Sensenbrenner: “The outcome of the U.S. Senate race in Wisconsin will have a nationwide impact. Leah Vukmir is the candidate best suited to bring our conservative Wisconsin values to Washington. Her record, courage, and vision are second to none, and I am proud to stand with Speaker Ryan today in support of Leah.”
Speaker Ryan and Congressman Sensenbrenner will be having a campaign rally with Leah in Pewaukee on Friday, July 6, at 5:30 p.m. More details will be forthcoming.
Excerpts from the column:
“That’s why we’re both proud to endorse Leah Vukmir to represent Wisconsin in the United States Senate.
“Leah is a longtime friend of ours and she has been a conservative partner among grassroots Republicans for years. She has proven that in the face of opposition, she will never waver and will work relentlessly for the causes that she believes in.”
“Leah is ready to take that fight to the U.S. Senate. And we need her there…badly.
“On issue after issue – whether it’s putting patients back in control of health care, cutting taxes for hard-working families, rolling back regulations stifling small businesses and job creators, or standing up for America’s interests abroad – Tammy Baldwin has toed the party line instead of looking out for Wisconsin.
“Those votes hold us back as a country. They prevent us from taking steps forward so Wisconsinites can thrive and pass on a better state to the next generation. That is what’s at stake in this election and it’s why we need to win this Senate seat.
“And Leah is the best candidate to do that. She has experience fighting for the conservative policies that we know will improve people’s lives, and she’s well-versed in both challenging the status quo and disrupting business as usual. That’s exactly the kind of voice we need in the U.S. Senate.”
“Leah has stood with us every step of the way on this journey. Now, it’s time for us to stand with her so she can go to Washington and continue this fight. We’re proud to be supporting her in this Senate race and hope you’ll join us in voting for her to be our nominee on August 14th.”
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. Endorsed by the Republican Party of Wisconsin, Leah is running for the U.S. Senate to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington.
