“Jessi exemplifies the values and patriotism our country needs in the rising generation of conservative leaders. They will face constant challenges from those seeking to undermine the Constitution and founding principles of our great nation. Jessi will face these challenges with strength and determination as she faithfully serves the people of Wisconsin’s 3rd District.
“Many issues faced by Wisconsin’s rural communities are similar to those of North Carolina’s 5th District, and Jessi has the knowledge and resolve to address them in Washington, D.C. Working together, I believe we can close the skills gap, bring more opportunities for education and jobs to rural communities, and keep the federal government from interfering in people’s lives. It is a pleasure to endorse Jessi Ebben for U.S. Congress.”
