County Executive Chris Abele Announces Major Democratic Endorsements
Democratic Party Leaders Herb Kohl, Jim Doyle and Mary Burke stand with Abele
MILWAUKEE – Chris Abele, running for re-election for Milwaukee County Executive, today announced the support of three of the most popular figures within the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. Former United States Senator Herb Kohl, former Governor Jim Doyle, and 2014 Democratic nominee for Governor Mary Burke, the only woman in Wisconsin history to win a major party nomination for that office, are well known champions for progressive values and the Milwaukee region.
In announcing their support, the leading Democrats released the following statements:
“County Executive Chris Abele’s stewardship of Milwaukee County over the last five years merits another term. Chris demonstrates every day that when people work together in good faith, great things are possible for our community.”
– US Senator Herb Kohl
“Chris Abele has been my long time friend and I endorse his reelection. I appreciate the difficult task he has had to clean up the mess handed him by his predecessor. He has been a champion of human rights and has committed himself to providing economic opportunity for all.”
– Governor Jim Doyle
“Milwaukee residents need access to more good-paying jobs and economic opportunity. Chris Abele knows this, and while lots of people talk about this issue, Chris is doing much more than talk. From Park East to UpLift MKE the County has played a central role in creating jobs under Chris’s leadership because he focuses on getting results, and not the politics. I am proud to support his re-election.”
– Gubernatorial Nominee Mary Burke
County Executive Chris Abele reacted to the support of leading Democrats with the following statement:
“It is incredibly humbling to have the support of leaders from my party who have proudly fought for Milwaukee for years,” said Abele. “I am inspired by and proud to call friends these leaders who have given so much of themselves in their efforts to improve Milwaukee.”
