MADISON, Dec. 5, 2019 – Citing his commitment to free enterprise and open competition, a group representing nearly 900 Wisconsin construction employers is endorsing state Senator Tom Tiffany’s campaign for Congress.

In announcing the endorsement, Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin President John Mielke highlighted Tiffany’s common-sense efforts while in the state Senate.

“Congress is going to be dealing with complex and significant issues, and we cannot afford to elect someone who needs on-the-job training,” Mielke said. “Tom has a track record of getting things done in Wisconsin, and I am confident he will be able to build on his past success in D.C.”

“I’m honored to have the support of the hard-working hard hats who are literally building the Wisconsin economy,” Tiffany said. “And I promise that I will continue to cut the government red tape that binds small businesses from fair and open competition.”

ABC of Wisconsin is the construction industry’s voice of free enterprise in the state. The association also provides construction industry employers with workforce development and training and resources to help contractors remain safe and competitive.

Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District in northwest and central Wisconsin is the largest congressional district in the state, covering parts of 20 counties and stretching from Superior to Wausau, and Florence to River Falls. The primary election is Feb. 18 and the general election is May 12.
