[Madison, WI] — After earning the support of grassroots activists from across the state at the Republican Party of Wisconsin convention in May, Leah Vukmir received two more big endorsements on Monday. Speaker Paul Ryan and Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner both threw their support behind Vukmir because of her proven track record as a conservative reformer and her promise to take the Wisconsin way to Washington.
Check out some of the news on Vukmir’s big endorsements:
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: For Leah Vukmir, the endorsement at the state Republican Party convention in May is the gift that keeps on giving … And Monday, she grabbed the biggest assist of the campaign yet, a dual endorsement from House Speaker Paul Ryan of Janesville and U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner of Menomonee Falls.
From the Wisconsin State Journal: Ryan, R-Janesville, and the dean of Wisconsin’s U.S. House delegation, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Menomonee Falls, announced their endorsements of Vukmir Monday in an op-ed on the conservative website RightWisconsin.
From the Associated Press: Ryan and Sensenbrenner said in a piece published Monday on the RightWisconsin website that Vukmir is a longtime friend and conservative ally who’s committed to challenging the status quo.
From Roll Call: Vukmir is “a longtime friend, a conservative ally, and the right person to take on Tammy Baldwin this fall,” Ryan said in a statement Monday. “Leah has proven that she’s committed to expanding opportunity and challenging the status quo, and our state deserves that kind of leadership in the Senate. She will be a great partner to Ron Johnson and will fight tirelessly to make Washington work more like Wisconsin.”
From the Washington Examiner: In the race to replace Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., Leah Vukmir now has the endorsement of the state GOP, the dean of Wisconsin’s congressional delegation, and the speaker of the House of Representatives. With less than two months before the Aug. 14 primary, Wisconsin’s Republican power brokers have lined up behind her bid.
