kristin-lyerly-md-commitmentAnnounces Overwhelming Grassroots Support and Key Endorsements.


Green Bay, WI – After launching her campaign for Congress on April 4th, 2024, Dr. Kristin Lyerly has continued building significant momentum, meeting voters, hosting events, and barnstorming nearly every corner of the district in her bid to capture the open seat in Wisconsin’s 8th district. Dr. Lyerly’s campaign has generated grassroots support and engagement previously not seen in this district, surpassing over 10,000 individual contributions to the campaign since its launch just three weeks ago, and receiving acknowledgement from former GOP Congressman Reid Ribble, who said that a Democrat could win the district (link here).

kristin-lyerly-md“I am honored and humbled by the thousands of individuals who have pitched in to ensure the early success of our campaign to represent the people of Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District. This level of support has surpassed anything we have seen in Northeast Wisconsin in years, clearly suggesting that the people of this region are ready for change, understand the opportunity in front of us, and most importantly, have a reason to hope.”

Northeastern Wisconsin is going to be a region to watch this November:

  • According to Reuters, Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District is amongst the top 11 races to watch in 2024 (link here).

  • Former GOP Congressman Reid Ribble said that a Democrat could win the district (link here).
