“Senator Bernie Sanders, the Progressive leader of the Senate and benchmark for Progressive politics in America, will be visiting Wisconsin on Saturday, July, 14th to show his support for OWR endorsed Senator Tammy Baldwin. Along with Senator Sanders, Senator Baldwin introduced the Medicare for All bill, supports the America’s College Promise Act for free two-year community college and has championed tax breaks for the middle class and those working to attain that vanishing status. Both Senator Sanders and Senator Baldwin acknowledge their important partnership in the Senate and want to continue their vital work together,” said Our Wisconsin Revolution Co-Chair, Terrance Warthen. “Together they will build on Senator Sanders Progressive agenda as it rightfully takes its place as the central priority for the advancement of real American values and a government that works for all Americans, in our current political climate, and into the future.”
Seeing these Senators unite on the campaign trail sends a message to supporters throughout our state – this election is too important for the state of Wisconsin and our Nation. The combined grassroots efforts of Sanders and Baldwin supporters are essential to Senator Baldwin’s re-election in the fall. Our Wisconsin Revolution endorses Senator Tammy Baldwin in her campaign for re-election to the U.S. Senate.
