MADISON — Today, Rep. Ruben Gallego (AZ-07) announced his endorsement of Mandela Barnes in the Democratic Senate primary.
“It’s an honor to have earned the endorsement of Rep. Gallego, who has dedicated his entire life to serving his community and his country,” said Lt. Governor and U.S. Senate candidate Mandela Barnes. “In the Senate, I look forward to working with him to protect access to affordable health care, serve our veterans, and expand opportunities for working families.”
“Mandela Barnes gets what working families are going through, and that’s exactly why he is the best person to represent Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate,” said Representative Ruben Gallego (AZ-07). “While the House has passed laws to protect our voting rights, make Roe v. Wade the law of the land, and protect workers, the Senate has sat on its hands. In order to change what happens in the Senate, we have to start with changing the people we send there. I know we can count on Mandela Barnes to fight for our communities. I’m proud to stand with him.”
