iraq-warCounty Veterans Service Officers are our most essential direct contact to veterans in Wisconsin, but the State DVA has targeted them and it needs to stop. Why this relentless attack on CVSO officers and veterans by the Wisconsin DVA?


MIDDLETON, WI - Veterans in Wisconsin need only to travel within their own county to have personal contact with another veteran helping navigate access to services. That office is the County Veterans Service Office by statute a “bricks and mortar” office where a veteran can receive support and assistance from another veteran.

CVSO’s are our most essential direct contact to veterans in Wisconsin. Why are they under attack from the Department of Veterans Affairs and Secretary John Scocos? I have no idea, but I want it to stop.

CVSO’s should have easier access to direct service connections with state and federal benefits, but instead, the Wisconsin DVA has been making it harder for CVSO’s to help veterans. From limiting access to benefits programs to blocking grants without proper legal authority, the DVA has targeted CVSO’s and it needs to stop.

russ-feingoldLast night reminded us to fight for bold, progressive ideals of economic opportunity, civil rights, and a foreign policy that reconnects America with the rest of the world. Our progressive movement is as strong as ever, so add your name right now to become a volunteer for the grassroots team that's taking the fight to every corner of Wisconsin.


MADISON - Just a few years ago, I wouldn't have believed it. But, last night, I watched First Lady Michelle Obama and Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders address delegates at the Democratic National Convention, and one thing was crystal clear: our bold, progressive vision was front and center on the stage of the Democratic National Convention.

bernie-sandersLast night reminded us of why we're in this: To fight for bold, progressive ideals of economic opportunity, civil rights, and a foreign policy that reconnects America with the rest of the world. That's what's been the core of our campaign since day one, and I can't tell you how great it is to see Democrats excited about a progressive vision for our country.

Our progressive movement is as strong as ever, and it's because of supporters like you. You've made sure that our voices are heard and our ideas rise to the top.

Together, we've built a grassroots army of volunteers across Wisconsin to help support our progressive movement, and we need your help. Add your name, and sign up to be a volunteer.

We know why we're fighting. As I've traveled to each of Wisconsin's 72 counties and logged over 50,000 miles on our campaign van, I've met with people of all backgrounds and listened to their stories. And what I've heard more than anything else is that people are having a hard time making ends meet.

It's simple: Our fight is about opening the door to opportunity for all Americans. We need an economy that works for everyone -- not just those at the top.
