MADISON – Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning released the following statement with the conclusion of the first night of the Democratic National Convention:

“Tonight showed exactly why the Democrats are the party of the future, and why we must elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine to the White House to continue building on the eight years of progress we have had under President Obama and Vice-President Biden.

“Our great speakers spoke of a better America where everyone, regardless of their race, religion, creed, sexual orientation, or who how they identify has a fair shot to get ahead. We heard ways to battle the opioid epidemic facing our country, the need to address climate change, relieving college debt, fixing our broken immigration system, and raising wages and creating jobs. In short, what we heard was the real problems facing America and how we can solve them together.

“First Lady Michelle Obama, Senator Warren, and the great Senator Bernie Sanders gave rousing progressive speeches, speaking to why we cannot afford to have someone like Donald Trump – someone who clearly does not have the temperament to be President – in the White House. Just as important, they discussed the Democratic values that have built this country up over the past eight years and why we must retain the White House.

“Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine will support and fight for policies that work for all of us, not just those at the top. Furthermore, they understand that we are stronger together, and we can only make progress if we are marching towards the future hand in hand.”
