Barnes Campaign: Endorses Randy Bryce for Congress
Will speak at Saturday rally in Racine
Statewide: Today, Mandela Barnes, candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin, announces his endorsement of Ironworker Randy Bryce to represent Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District. The announcement comes in advance of Bryce’s Saturday rally at Racine Memorial Hall, where Mandela will be a guest speaker.
Also appearing at the rally are Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, State Representatives Greta Neubauer and JoCasta Zamarripa, Racine Alderman John Tate II, Milwaukee County Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic, Alice Erven, and Cendi Trujillo Tena. Said Mandela regarding the endorsement:
“Since 2011, I have gotten to know Randy from standing side by side with him through some of our state’s greatest challenges. Speaker Paul Ryan and Governor Walker share some of the worst things in common, and the people of this state deserve real leadership to restore opportunity. Randy embodies that leadership.”
Barnes is grateful for the early support he has received in the race for Lieutenant Governor, including endorsements from 23 state legislators and Congressman Mark Pocan. He is hosting an official kickoff event on Wednesday evening, March 7th at 5:30pm at Anodyne Coffee Roasters – 224 W Bruce St in Milwaukee. He understands that it’s people, not endorsements, that decide elections, and looks forward to continue traveling the state, meeting with voters and sharing his vision to expand opportunity for all Wisconsinites.
