Today, Governor Tommy Thompson endorsed Senator Tom Tiffany’s bid for Congress. This is the second major endorsement since entering the race last week.
“Congress needs Sen. Tom Tiffany. He’s succeeded both in business and has also served admirably as a public servant,” said Tommy G. Thompson, former Republican Governor of Wisconsin. “Not only would Sen. Tiffany bring a depth of professional experiences to Congress, he has the personal integrity and determination common in the Northwoods and much-needed in Congress.”
“It’s an honor to have Governor Thompson’s support.” said Tiffany. “Tommy led the charge on many conservative reforms and worked tirelessly for the people of Wisconsin. The welfare reforms he championed became a national model and encouraged people to find a job and move away from government dependency.
Tiffany added, “Thank you Governor Thompson for being a conservative reformer. I plan to bring big, bold ideas to Washington and deliver results for the people of the 7th Congressional District just like Governor Thompson did for the State of Wisconsin.”
