MADISON — Today, Wisconsin State Representative Kristina Shelton joined over 120 state and local elected officials in endorsing Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes for U.S. Senate. Rep. Shelton represents Wisconsin’s 90th Assembly District, containing most of the city of Green Bay.

Rep. Shelton released the following statement:

“Mandela understands the history of our state and the challenges we face now — and he has a vision for where we are going next. Working Wisconsinites know we can rely on Mandela Barnes to fight for good-paying jobs and quality child care to help parents get back to work, and fix our supply chain issues.

“Mandela knows the struggles that people in Wisconsin are facing better than anyone, as well as their hopes for the future. As the son of a teacher and a 3rd shift factory worker whose hard work and union jobs were the family’s ticket to the middle class, Mandela will never stop fighting to create those same opportunities in every corner of Wisconsin. That’s why he’s built the largest grassroots coalition in Wisconsin, and why he gives Democrats the best chance to beat Ron Johnson in November. It is a pleasure to be his friend and to stand with him in this fight.”

Representative Kristina Shelton is a former public educator, mother of two, and strong advocate for the middle class, health care, education, and more. Rep. Shelton joins a long list of leaders in the Democratic Party, including Senators Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, in endorsing Mandela Barnes for U.S. Senate.
