Former GOP Chairman and Businessman Julian Bradley Runs For 28th Senate District


By - May 20th, 2020 02:34 pm

(Franklin) Longtime conservative leader Julian Bradley has decided to run for the 28th Senate District being vacated by Senator Dave Craig. “Democratic control of Wisconsin means fewer of your tax dollars in your pocket, fewer freedoms like your right to carry, and fewer voices for the unborn” said Bradley. “I care about protecting the rights of the unborn, I care about our ability to worship and speak as we please, and I care about correcting the path that Tony Evers is attempting to take our state down.”

For over a decade, Julian has worked alongside many of our conservative leaders locally and statewide. His work in carrying the conservative message has led to several endorsements including those of two state representatives that represent the 28th district.

“I’m honored to have the endorsements of my friends State Rep. Ken Skowronski in the 82nd Assembly District, and State Rep. Chuck Wichgers in the 83rd Assembly District,” said Bradley. “The reason that people here and around the state have encouraged me to run and have already endorsed my campaign, is because they’ve seen how passionately I’ve worked to further our Republican ideas. I look forward to taking those ideas to Madison and continuing the work Senator Craig has been doing”.

Prior to relocating to Franklin for his career, Julian Bradley was the Chairman of the La Crosse County Republican Party, Vice Chairman of the Third Congressional District GOP, and chairman of the 2015 GOP State Convention. In those roles, he helped recruit volunteers, assisted candidates running for office, and actively reached out to younger & minority voters.

Julian Bradley is the youngest of 3 siblings. In 1992, Julian and his mother relocated to Wisconsin, settling in La Crosse. After graduating high school, he attended Temple University in Philadelphia before returning to Wisconsin and finishing his bachelor’s degree at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. Julian was a senior manager for a telecommunications company for 15 years, prior to taking a management role with an insurance company in Franklin.

In 2002, Julian had a conversation with his mom, a lifelong democrat, that as he stated, “changed everything.” “My mom was a Democrat and I grew up thinking I was too until we had a heated debate on abortion. When I said abortion was wrong, my mother accused me of being a Republican, which led to me researching the party platforms for the first time. It turned out my mom was right, and I am a Republican. I joined the GOP that day.”
