I’ve known Matt for many years, and I’m proud to call him my friend and will be proud to vote for him in the August primary and the November general election. I wholeheartedly endorse Matt Flynn for governor of Wisconsin.”

“I want to thank Supervisor Ortiz-Velez for her endorsement,” said Flynn. “2018 is a critical election and we need to come together to replace Scott Walker. As governor, I will work with local leaders and re-establish the principle of local control in our communities.”
