Tanya Lohr, a public school teacher and activist who led the charge to try and recall right-wing extremist State Sen. Glen Grothman (R-West Bend), has announced her candidacy for the 20th District Senate seat against Sen. Grothman. Lohr, who’s a graduate of Emerge Wisconsin’s leadership training program, is also the chair of the Democratic Party of Washington County.
“I want to restore adequate funding for public education, respect for women, affordable family health care and strengthen our communities by empowering working people,” said Lohr, who resides in the Town of West Bend. “The Republican agenda was imposed on Wisconsin working families and has polarized our state. It is time we corrected the imbalance.”
This is great news, and while there’s no denying Tanya Lohr has an incredibly uphill battle if she’s going to unseat Sen. Grothman, she strikes me as the perfect opponent to point out how virulently anti-woman Glen Grothman has been as a State Senator.
