APPLETON, Wis – Pro-Worker and populist U.S. Senate candidate Tom Nelson today said he was proud to have been a 2020 delegate for Bernie Sanders and would continue fighting for his ideals:
“No one has done more to advance the cause of workers against the billionaire class than Bernie Sanders and push for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal and opposing dirty fossil fuel pipelines like Line 5. I’m proud to be the only Wisconsin campaign that’s been leading the way on these issues and will continue to.”.
Our Wisconsin Revolution, a group founded out of Sanders’ presidential campaign, has endorsed Nelson as the best candidate to take on Ron Johnson. OWR Executive Director Andre Walton said, “Right now we are living in an era of crises. An economic crisis that is crushing working families. An environmental crisis that is destroying our ecosystem and life as we know it on this planet. Lastly, we are facing a social crisis, in which the fabric of our society is being torn apart from within by the influence of money in politics, and self-serving politicians. In a time of multiple crises, we need a leader who dares to stand up to corporations and challenge leadership in D.C. Our Wisconsin Revolution was proud to endorse Tom Nelson because he’s proven that he is willing to stand up to the powerful forces in D.C. and advocate for the policies that will help uplift working families and help save the planet.”
