From Mark Pocan’s Congressional campaign comes news that former Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle has endorsed Pocan’s campaign:
“In my time as Governor I’ve seen a lot of legislators at work. Mark’s ability to get things done for working people truly stood out,” the Governor said. “As chair of the budget committee during the worst deficit in the state’s history, he faced down the right wing extremists in the legislature pushing for unfair, draconian cuts and showed true leadership in the process.”
In addition to his endorsement by Gov. Doyle, Pocan has been endorsed by 16 labor unions, the Human Rights Campaign, the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, Dane County Executive Joe Parisi, Madison Mayor Paul Soglin, among others.
