Our people-powered movement to defeat Scott Walker has been endorsed by progressive leaders and labor organizations across Wisconsin. Join them by clicking hereto endorse Tom Barrett in the Democratic Primary on May 8.
US Senator Herb Kohl"While I wouldn't ordinarily endorse in a primary, this is no ordinary race or time. Tom's decision to run speaks volumes about who Tom is – a strong leader known around the state as someone who will work with everyone to help bring Wisconsinites together and move our state forward again"
Congresswoman Gwen Moore "I am so delighted Tom has decided to join the race. I think citizens of Wisconsin have a great opportunity for a do-over. We're going to do it right this time people."
ATU Wisconsin "We have a long history of working with Tom Barrett. Tom has always been a friend of working people, transit workers and public transportation."
State Senator Jon Erpenbach "Tom will restore collective bargaining for teachers and public employees and he'll stand up for our jobs, our schools and our families. Tom Barrett will beat Scott Walker and bring Wisconsin together."
Former Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton "As our Governor, Tom Barrett will put us back on the right path, end Walker's ideological civil war, and bring people together to heal Wisconsin's political wounds. That's why I am proud to endorse him."
Former Congressman Dave Obey "Tom has a long track record of putting working and middle class people first. He will focus on jobs, restore full collective bargaining rights, and undo the damage Walker has done to Wisconsin's proud education system – from kindergarten to college."
Ironworkers president Collin Millard "Not only is Tom Barrett a friend and strong advocate for working families and worker rights and protections, he without question gives Wisconsin our best chance to defeat Scott Walker"
Congressman Ron Kind "Tom will be a Governor that western and central Wisconsin can be proud of. I support him and look forward to working with him to build a brighter future for our state"
Dr. Steve Kagan "My family and I trust Tom Barrett, because he's a friend to hard working people in northern Wisconsin, and he's a friend to women, their families and senior citizens."
Operating Engineers Local 317 "Barrett gives our state the best chance to get back on the right path, restore collective bargaining rights, and protect the future of working families and the middle class."
