Milwaukee – Alex Lasry today announced the endorsement of Shannon Holsey, President of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians. President Holsey is the latest addition to a growing list of people from across the state who are supporting Alex Lasry to be Wisconsin’s next U.S. Senator.

“We need a U.S. Senator that will put in the work necessary to understand and represent the issues facing Wisconsin’s native nations,” said President Shannon Holsey. “Alex Lasry is engaging tribal leaders and learning about the concerns of our constituents and how to serve a very diverse state with a broad set of needs. He is the person that I trust to represent Wisconsin’s sovereign tribal nations, and I’m proud to endorse his campaign to be Wisconsin’s next U.S. Senator.”

Holsey is currently serving her third term as the President of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians, after becoming the youngest person ever elected to the post in 2015. Holsey also serves as President of the Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council, representing the eleven member tribes in Wisconsin and as the Treasurer of the National Congress of American Indians, the oldest, largest and most representative American Indian and Alaskan Native organization. Holsey has been active in Democratic politics and was chosen as one of Wisconsin’s electors to cast the state’s Electoral College votes for President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in 2020.

“I could not be more excited to have the support of President Shannon Holsey,” said Alex Lasry. “President Holsey has been a leader both in Wisconsin and nationally and has been a strong advocate for Wisconsin’s tribal nations. I look forward to working with her and I’m extremely grateful to have her on our team as we continue to build the statewide coalition to start delivering real results for the people of Wisconsin.”
