Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Endorses Rep. Keith Ellison for DNC Chair
"I am confident Rep. Ellison will continue to move our party forward and he will fight for the progressive values we share as Democrats," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin chair Martha Laning.
“When I ran for chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin I emphasized a commitment to building from the grassroots and working with progressive leaders to elect Democrats in every corner of Wisconsin. A year and a half later, I am more committed than ever to tapping into the energy of our grassroots leaders in order to restore Wisconsin’s proud progressive traditions.
“That is why I am proud to endorse Congressman Keith Ellison to be the next Chair of the Democratic National Committee. Since becoming chair, I’ve had the opportunity to work very closely with Congressman Ellison, and share his vision for re-energizing our broad and diverse Democratic coalition and ensuring that all voices are represented in our party’s leadership.”
“This year, Democrats put forward the most progressive platform in our party’s history, and it is essential that we have a leader like Rep. Ellison who has championed these policies his entire career.
“I am confident Rep. Ellison will continue to move our party forward and he will fight for the progressive values we share as Democrats.”
