WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the New Democrat Coalition Action Fund announced its endorsement of Wisconsin State Senator Brad Pfaff for Wisconsin’s Third Congressional District. Sen. Pfaff announced his run for Congress following New Dem Chair Emeritus Congressman Ron Kind’s decision to retire.
Sen. Pfaff has a deep commitment to rural communities. He has years of experience fighting for Wisconsin’s agriculture economy, which makes him the best person to represent this district. As a Senator in Wisconsin’s State Assembly, Sen. Pfaff has served Wisconsinites through his work as the top Democrat on the Agriculture and Tourism Committee. In his roles at the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency, he always kept farmers and rural Americans top of mind and advocated for increased market opportunities and investments in mental health.
“Brad Pfaff’s unwavering commitment to rural America and his work to increase opportunities for farmers and agricultural communities make him the perfect candidate to represent the people of Wisconsin’s Third Congressional District,” said NewDem Action Fund Chair Brad Schneider. “As Americans see the cost of their gas and groceries go up, Wisconsin needs someone who has the background and experience to help keep food and fuel costs low while improving the lives of farmers and rural residents. In Congress, Brad will be an important advocate for Wisconsinites and rural Americans across the country.”
“It’s an honor to receive the endorsement of the NewDem Action Fund,” said Sen. Brad Pfaff. “Now more than ever, we need representatives who prioritize people over politics and who deliver for hardworking American families and that’s exactly what the NewDems embody.”

Formed by Members of the New Democrat Coalition, the NewDem Action Fund helps re-elect NewDems and elect new, like-minded leaders who can help develop a positive policy agenda and message.
