Contact: Irene Lin, Nelson for Wisconsin
“I can say without qualification that Tom Nelson has the credentials, track record and background to take on and defeat Ron Johnson…”
Appleton, Wis. – Former Democratic Party of Wisconsin (DPW) chair Terri Spring today endorsed Tom Nelson for the U.S. Senate, citing Nelson’s track record of fighting for working families. She joins a growing coalition of current and former Democratic leaders supporting Nelson’s pro-worker campaign.
Spring served as DPW chair from 1997 to 2001, and has worked with countless candidates while involved with Democratic politics in the state. As a resident of Burnett County, Spring knows the importance of paying attention to rural parts of the state, as Nelson has done through his 72-county tour last summer. In addition, he has the experience of working on his grandparents’ dairy farm in Polk County.
Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson is a 5th-generation Wisconsinite and pastor’s kid who has won SIX TIMES in areas carried by Trump by embracing workers and focusing on Main Street solutions.
Nelson said, “Terri knows the hard work it takes to get candidates elected, and I’m proud to gain her endorsement. We’re running a statewide campaign, and that means forming a coalition of grassroots support from Beloit to Burnett County, from Milwaukee to Manitowoc.”
“I worked with and worked for many candidates in my time as state party chair and as a Democratic activist. I can say without qualification that Tom Nelson has the credentials, track record and background to take on and defeat Ron Johnson and will be a United States Senator who will fight hard for working families. That is why I am proud to endorse him for Senate and I hope you will join me.”
The campaign also released a tweet about the endorsement.
