MADISON, WI – Today, U.S. Representatives Mark Pocan (WI-02), released the following statement on Governor Tony Earl who passed away earlier this morning.
“I was honored to volunteer on Governor Tony Earl’s very first campaign for governor when I was in high school. It’s where I cut my teeth in state politics as a young Democrat. From the first day I met him, he was always the most gracious person, with the goal of cultivating a Democratic bench for the future. Politics was never personal to him, and I’ve taken that lesson to heart. I will miss him. My thoughts are with his family today.”
