DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement today on President Clinton campaigning in Wisconsin tomorrow in support of Tom Barrett ahead of the recall election next Tuesday:
“I’m thrilled President Clinton will be traveling to Wisconsin tomorrow to campaign for the next governor of the Badger State, Mayor Tom Barrett. President Clinton is a true public servant who has dedicated his career to helping middle class Americans and those trying to reach the middle class achieve the American Dream.
“Having just been in Wisconsin this week, I know how important the recall election is and how dedicated Democrats and Wisconsin’s middle-class families are to this effort. The choice facing hardworking folks in Wisconsin could not possibly be more clear. Mayor Barrett’s record speaks for itself—he’s dedicated his career to fighting for economic security and fairness for working families in Wisconsin. He has staunchly defended the core values that define us as Democrats: fighting for a strong middle class, standing up for women’s health, protecting our environment, and pushing back on divisive attacks against the rights of our workers. In stark contrast, for the last year and a half Scott Walker has done nothing but divide Wisconsin and turn his back on the middle class. That’s not the kind of leadership Wisconsin needs, and that’s why Tom Barrett will be elected the next governor of Wisconsin. I'm proud that President Clinton is adding his voice to this important fight.”
