Racine, WI – Former Obama White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough today endorsed Democrat Roger Polack in the race for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional seat. Polack, a Racine native, a national security expert who served in the Obama administration, and an attorney, announced his candidacy in January.
“As President Barack Obama’s former Chief of Staff, I am proud to endorse Roger Polack for Congress in Wisconsin’s First District. Roger worked on some of the most pressing national security issues throughout the Obama Administration, including deploying to Afghanistan multiple times as a civilian to stop funding to the Taliban and implementing the Iran nuclear agreement,” said McDonough. “His dedication to public service and to keeping America safe makes him the right choice to represent the people of Southeastern Wisconsin in Congress.”
