MILWAUKEE, WI – Days after launching her grassroots campaign for U.S. Senate, State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski is “already barnstorming the state” – kicking off her first statewide tour on Monday to meet people where they are and discuss the kitchen table issues that matter most to working families.
At stops in Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, and Brown Deer, Sarah heard from small business owners, local leaders, and working moms that Ron Johnson’s status quo in Washington isn’t working for them. As a fifth-generation Wisconsinite, former small business owner, and a working mom herself, Sarah knows firsthand the challenges they’re facing, and she’s laser-focused on bringing about the change that Wisconsinites need to succeed.
Sarah started the day with Black and Latinx small business owners and State Reps. Chris Sinicki and Sylvia Ortiz-Velez in Milwaukee. While Ron Johnson opposed critical relief like the Restaurant Revitalization Fund and PPP loan extensions, Sarah will always put small businesses first and fight for resources like new access to capital and win-win Main Street investments.

“More than 470 days before the Democratic primary, state Treasurer Sarah Godlewski hit the campaign trail for the first time Monday, stopping in Milwaukee to meet with small business owners on the city’s north side. … She vowed to bring change to Washington, D.C., contrasting her goals with Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, who still hasn’t announced if he’ll seek a third term next year.
`We have a senator in Washington right now who says people aren’t struggling,” Godlewski said as she convened a discussion. “He couldn’t be more disconnected from Wisconsin and quite frankly reality.'”

Then, Sarah grabbed coffee with State Rep. Robyn Vining, former Wauwatosa Mayor Kathy Ehley, and the PerSisters to share the perspective she’ll bring to Washington to get things done for working women.
Sarah wrapped up the day with a backyard meet-and-greet in Brown Deer with Brown Deer Trustee Emily Siegrist, Sheboygan County Supervisor Becky Clarke, and Milwaukee-area moms.
The tour will continue on Thursday and crisscross all of Wisconsin in her effort to build a statewide grassroots team to beat Ron Johnson in November.
