Campaign manager Irene Lin said, “We are proud to be supported overwhelmingly by small donors in Wisconsin who recognize Tom’s record of progressive leadership in a red county and that we need a U.S. Senator ready to fight for Medicare for all and an economy that puts workers ahead of Wall Street and corporate interests. The Senate is made up of two-thirds millionaires and Tom would be among the lonely one-third who isn’t able to self-fund his campaign. We need more Senators who understand the struggles of everyday Wisconsinites instead of billionaire son-in-law Ron Johnson’s obstructionism that gives tax cuts to the wealthy and denies survival checks to struggling Wisconsinites during a pandemic.”
