Wisconsin State Representatives Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) and Deb Andraca (D-Whitefish Bay) and Kristina Shelton (D-Green Bay) have endorsed Anna Halverson as the next Representative from District 80.
Halverson has earned more public endorsements from current legislators than any other candidate in the race. She is also endorsed by EMILY’s List, the premier organization dedicated to electing pro-choice women and is one of only two Candidates in Wisconsin endorsed by Everytown for Gun Safety.
Representative Subeck said, “As the only woman in this race, Anna brings a much-needed perspective on issues that directly affect women and families. She is the strongest defender of reproductive rights and her proven track record on ending gun violence is unmatched. I need her working alongside me in the State Legislature.”
“At this critical time for our state, we need the passion, experience, and commitment that Anna Halverson will bring to the State Assembly,” said Representative Andraca. “Her leadership with Moms Demand Action to end gun violence, her ability to get things done, and her dedication to protecting reproductive rights are what we need right now. I am enthusiastically supporting her.”
“In Anna Halverson, the people of the 80th District will have a champion they can count on to deliver the bold action that it will take to move Wisconsin forward,” Representative Shelton said. “Anna has demonstrated her strong commitment to economic security for all Wisconsinites, including access to healthcare, affordable housing, clean water, and excellent public schools. She knows now is the time for urgent action. I am excited about her candidacy, and I am proud to give her my energetic support.”
“It is an honor to have earned the trust and confidence of these amazing legislators who know best what it takes to be an effective State Representative,” said Halverson. “On the issues that matter so much – defending reproductive health, ending gun violence, supporting our public schools, economic security, and protecting our democracy – Representatives Andraca, Shelton, and Subeck are inspirational leaders.”
Representatives Subeck, Shelton, and Andraca are part of Halverson’s growing list of supporters which includes Representative and former Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz; former Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney; Verona Alder Mara Helmke; Verona School Board Member Nicole Vafardi; Mount Horeb Area School Board Vice President Jessica Arrigoni; Mount Horeb Area School Board Member Carly Fisher; and Fitchburg Alder Gabriella Gerhardt.
