from my email in box:
Today, we are proud to announce that we are endorsing Mary Burke for the next governor of Wisconsin — the woman who will finally put a stop to Republican Governor Scott Walker.
Wisconsin is long overdue for a breath of fresh air in the governor’s mansion — someone who’ll dedicate themselves to getting things done for the state instead of raising their national conservative profile on the backs of working families.
That’s why we’re proud to endorse Mary Burke for governor. And we want you to join us in supporting her. Contribute to her campaign right now.
Mary has the kind of candidate resume Scott Walker could only dream of. From playing a vital role with the Boys and Girls Club, to creating jobs, to serving as Wisconsin’s Commerce Secretary, Mary’s dedicated a lifetime to ensuring strong economic development for her home.
But when she announced her campaign to keep helping Wisconsin, she immediately came under radical Republican attack for — get this — her hair. It’s only a taste of what’s to come — especially with Scott Walker as Mary’s opposition.
There’s no denying that Scott Walker has been horrible for Wisconsin — always has been and always will be. Wisconsin needs a governor who can create jobs and protect workers’ rights but Walker has done the exact opposite: repealing equal pay protection for women, eliminating collective bargaining rights for public workers, and slashing funds for education and health care. Rather than protecting the people of Wisconsin, Walker put them at risk. You can bet he’ll make things even worse if reelected.
So when we have a strong candidate like Mary Burke who will stand up for workers’ rights, and stand up for the middle-class, we can’t just let that pass us by.
We know Mary Burke will fight for Wisconsin, we know she’ll fight for the middle class, and we’re confident she can win. Contribute today to make sure that Mary has everything she needs to win the fight against Scott Walker and his extremist pals.
So the powers that be are lining up behind Mary Burke. If other candidates are still considering getting in the race, I suggest they announce NOW!
