mandela-barnesMILWAUKEE - We did it! Last night, after seven months of campaigning, Wisconsin Democrats went to the polls and chose me to be their next Lieutenant Governor. I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you who supported me throughout this process. It is an honor and a privilege to have reached this point.

Whether you donated to the campaign, talked to your friends and family, made calls, shared social media posts, came to an event, or simply filled the bubble next to my name on the ballot, we wouldn’t be anywhere without you.

As exciting as all of this is, we know that we’re only halfway there. This election, more than anything else, is about taking power back in our state, and restoring and expanding opportunity across Wisconsin. The time is now to organize in every community, and to elect progressive Democrats up and down the ballot, from Tammy Baldwin at the federal level all the way down to the Assembly, where there are Democrats running in 91 of 99 districts!

I want to thank all the great candidates who ran in the primary for Governor this year. The thoughtful exchange of ideas represented a welcome contrast to the ugly battle waged by Republicans in their primary for Senate.

Democrats stand united, and I am thrilled to be joining the ticket with Tony Evers on the November 6th ballot. With your continued support, I know that we will win and bring real, positive change to the lives of Wisconsinites - no matter which party they’ve supported in the past.

andy-gronikFormer Democratic candidate for Governor Andy Gronik shares his picks in Tuesday's primaries.

MILWAUKEE - Traveling throughout Wisconsin listening to the life stories of real people with all political beliefs and shaping their ideas into real plans to make living in Wisconsin better for everyone was one of the greatest privileges of my life. I am so grateful to all of you for being a part of my campaign and for contributing your ideas, passion, time and money to help me.

While I am no longer in the race, I have continued to fight on your behalf because Wisconsinites deserve a true advocate who will work to bring our divided state and country back together again in ways that honor ALL the people who live here.   We’re getting down to the nitty gritty and I’ve come out strong in support of a few candidates because I think they are uniquely qualified to get us back to being Wisconsin.

kelda-roysKelda Roys For Governor — We can’t begin to restore the progressive values needed to put the people of our state back in the driver’s seat unless we beat Gov. Scott Walker.  And, let’s be honest, beating Scott Walker is going to be tough. I got to know all of the candidates for governor very well and I like them all. But I’m supporting Kelda because I think she’s in the best position, with a unique constituency, to beat Walker. It’s that simple.

Please join me in voting for Kelda Roys for Governor on Tuesday, August 14th.

sarah-godlewskiSarah Godlewski For Treasurer — Gov. Walker’s been busy trying to consolidate power to himself and away from the people of our state. I am diametrically opposed to this kind of power-hungry leadership. Sarah has a brilliant financial mind and the Office of the Treasurer is a financial position - let’s not forget that. Sarah is tenacious, leading the fight to save the office Walker was trying to obliterate — and won — let’s not forget that either.

Sarah is not only the fiscal “watchdog" needed right now in Wisconsin, she has the vision needed to claw back the oversight lost by this office over the years. Please join me in voting for Sarah Godlewski for State Treasurer on Tuesday, August 14th.

earnell-lucasEarnell Lucas for Milwaukee County Sheriff — I love that Earnell Lucas, a kid that grew up in the Hillside Terrace public housing development, wants to apply the knowledge he’s gained working to safeguard Major and Minor League Baseball to restoring the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, which was nationally humiliated by the self-aggrandizing mismanagement of it’s former leader David Clarke.

Sometimes the only way to make systemic changes to up-side-down organizations is by bringing in talented people from the outside to make the changes so desperately needed. And, in Earnell’s case, he will begin the journey of rebuilding honor and professionalism in the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office with a working understanding of the department he once so bravely served. I hope Milwaukee County residents will join me in voting for Earnell Lucas for Milwaukee County Sheriff on Tuesday, August 14th.

Thank you in advance for considering these wonderful candidates on Tuesday and for encouraging all of your friends to do the same. And, thanks again for all you have done to inform and support one of the most amazing and fulfilling journeys of my life.
