21 Wisconsin Leaders Endorse Sarah Godlewski for U.S. Senate

Coming on heels of pivotal EMILY’S List endorsement, strong support from communities across the state demonstrates Sarah is building the strongest coalition to defeat Ron Johnson

Today, State Treasurer and candidate for Senate Sarah Godlewski announced new endorsements from 21 current and former elected officials and prominent leaders from across Wisconsin.

The leaders hail from Superior to Janesville, spanning Milwaukee, Winnebago County, the Madison area, Sheboygan, De Pere and more. The deep and diverse support is yet another sign that Sarah is the only candidate who can build a 72-county campaign to go toe-to-toe with Ron Johnson and win.

In recent weeks, the campaign has also earned the support from 16 western Wisconsin leaders and a major endorsement from EMILY’s List – an early and important backer in both of Tammy Baldwin’s Senate campaigns. In total, Sarah has now earned endorsements from 39 Wisconsin current and former elected officials and community leaders.

“I’m honored to have the endorsements from community leaders from all across Wisconsin,” said State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski. “Ron Johnson has spent a decade dividing our state for his own political gain, while leaving workers and families behind. With strong grassroots support spanning from our biggest counties to our smallest communities, we’re building a statewide campaign that can win and restore Wisconsinites’ voice in Washington.”
