MILWAUKEE – This evening, State Treasurer and candidate for U.S. Senate Sarah Godlewski will take the stage and deliver a clear message to Wisconsin Democratic primary voters: Sarah is the best candidate to take on Ron Johnson in November.
Since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Sarah has seen a surge in momentum, including the best 72-hour stretch of individual donations of her campaign and a strong performance in the straw poll conducted at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin Convention which showed she is “effectively tied” with frontrunner Mandela Barnes. The Supreme Court ruling is clearly shaking up this race, and as the only woman running, Sarah has been a leading voice since her campaign began last spring.
With over three weeks to go until the August 9th primary, it’s clear this race is still wide open: the most recent independent public poll showed 36% of voters remain undecided, and Godlewski leads Ron Johnson in a head-to-head match-up at 45% to 43%. The campaign also reported two back-to-back best fundraising quarters, fueled by Godlewski’s rise to the forefront as she fights to protect reproductive rights.
In addition to sounding the alarm on threats to reproductive rights, Sarah has prioritized the kitchen table issues that keep hardworking Wisconsinites up at night by releasing policy plans to address these issues in the Senate:

Beating Ron Johnson will be a tough fight. Fortunately, Sarah is no stranger to tough races – she took on Scott Walker and his cronies as a “political unknown,” flipping nine Trump counties and taking more of the vote share than the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General in a landslide victory for the Treasurer’s office in 2018.
