Fighting Bob Fest founder Ed Garvey announced his support today for Jeff Smith’s candidacy to be the next State Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
In a statement, Garvey said:
“I think Jeff Smith is the candidate who will take the Democratic Party of Wisconsin out of the hands of the big dollar consultants and put it back where it belongs, in the hands of its members. If I was going to the convention in Milwaukee on June 6th Jeff would have my vote for State Party Chair.“
Garvey is a former Democratic candidate for both United States Senate and Governor of Wisconsin, and is the founder of Fighting Bob Fest, the largest annual gathering of progressives in the country.
“I’m really honored to have Ed’s endorsement “said Smith. “Over the last 35 years there’s been no greater champion of progressive principles and values in Wisconsin than Ed Garvey.“
