[Waukesha, WI] – During his over four decades in Congress, Jim Sensenbrenner was a fierce leader in the conservative movement. Today, Sensenbrenner announces his endorsement of another fierce leader for the cause, Rebecca Kleefisch.
“From Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump, I spent my career working alongside strong conservative icons to accomplish our shared goals, and we had a lot of success. I know what conservative leadership looks like, and Rebecca Kleefisch is the real deal,” Sensenbrenner said in a statement. “Early on, my late wife, Cheryl, and I spotted Rebecca’s unparalleled tenacity and came to know well her leadership abilities. She beat the odds as an outsider running for Lt. Gov. in 2010, and she even beat cancer that same year. She has been crucial to the conservative reforms in Wisconsin state government. No one will out work Rebecca Kleefisch. No one will fight harder for our conservative ideals than Rebecca Kleefisch.”
Jim Sensenbrenner represented Wisconsin in Congress for over 40 years until his retirement in 2021. He served in Congress longer than anyone in Wisconsin’s history, with many notable achievements. During his final term in office, he received the “Award for Conservative Excellence” and was named the most conservative Member of Wisconsin’s congressional delegation. He made a name for himself as a representative who “never went establishment” and remained connected with the needs of his constituents throughout his tenure.
