MADISON, WI – Today, State Representative Christine Sinicki announced her endorsement of Kelda Roys. Rep. Sinicki is the longest-serving woman in the Assembly, and a champion for public education, organized labor, and veterans.

“To build a better future in Wisconsin, we need new leadership,” said Sinicki. “It’s time to unite behind the candidate who is energizing voters all across this state – and that’s Kelda. Kelda is the candidate who can win in November.”

“I’m proud to have earned the endorsement of Rep. Sinicki,” said Roys. “Working alongside her in the Assembly to support Wisconsin families was a privilege, and I’m looking forward to continuing that partnership after we win in November. Together, we will restore opportunity and fairness to Wisconsin.”

Last week, Roys earned the endorsements of the Eau Claire indie band Bon Iver, as well as Diane Ravitch, president of the Network for Public Education, who the Washington Post described as “the titular leader of the grassroots movement against corporate school reform.”

Roys has previously been endorsed by many national and state organizations and leaders, including EMILY’s List, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the Wisconsin Gazette, Women’s March WI, National Organization for Women – Wisconsin, Feminist Majority PAC, WUFPAC, Demand Universal Healthcare, Moms Demand Action Candidate Distinction, #VoteProChoice, Andy Gronik, Outagamie Co. Exec. Thomas Nelson, Rep. Lisa Subeck, Rep. JoCasta Zamarripa, Rep. Amanda Stuck, Rep. Nick Milroy, former Sen. Jess King, philanthropist Lynde Uihlein, and hundreds of local elected officials and leaders.

Kelda Roys, 39, is a small business owner, attorney, former state representative, and past head of NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin, who has been standing up for women and families throughout her career. In the Assembly, she stood out as an influential and effective lawmaker, delivering results for working families and helping lead the opposition to Governor Scott Walker’s divisive agenda. As the parent and stepparent of four girls, Roys will fight for paid family leave, affordable childcare, student debt relief, great schools, and healthcare for all. In a year in which Wisconsin voters are ready for change, Kelda Roys provides the clearest contrast to Scott Walker.
