We learned our lesson in 2016, my friends. So I challenge all of us this November to turn our proud Wisconsin into a solid blue WINCONSIN!

Reflecting back to November of 2016 is painful for all of us. What we’ve endured for over three and a half years since – stuffing children in cages, glorifying white supremacists, stripping away healthcare coverage, gutting the Post Office, abandoning protections for young people trying to pay back their way-too-high student loans, ripping up environmental regulations to protect our planet, “fake news”, snatching hard-earned money out of workers’ pockets to hand billionaires bigger tax breaks on a silver platter, attacking peaceful protestors with our own National Guard, denying science in the middle of a worldwide pandemic… the emotional toll is truly indescribable. But it’s this toll, this urgent need, that wakes me up at 4:30AM each day pushes me to fight harder and rise higher than ever before in my life – for you, for Wisconsin, and for all that America can be.

The only way to right the ship, begin to heal our nation, and restore our shared values that will forever remain in the words, “we the people”, is to elect real leadership – Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

I have been blessed to know Joe Biden, and I can honestly tell you he cares. He puts people first, not profits. His values are unwavering, and when you listen to him tell of how he grew up and his earlier years, you hear those values come through in his stories. Joe has not had it easy, just like most of us have worked through tough times. He is one of the most empathetic, perceptive, and responsive people I’ve ever met. We need Joe Biden to be our next President and put our nation back on the pathway to progress now more than ever.

As the first Black woman to represent Wisconsin in Congress, I am elated that we have the opportunity to make history once again by electing the first Black woman to be our next Vice President, Kamala Harris. I know Kamala Harris – she’s a fighter who we can trust to stand up for the backbone of our nation – each and every one of us. She knows what’s at stake and is not afraid to take on powerful interests – Kamala puts people first.

With Joe Biden and Kamala Harris leading us on the path to restoring our democracy and unifying our nation, we must all do our part and make our voices heard this November. The path to victory runs straight through Wisconsin, and while this year’s virtual Democratic National Convention is taking “place” in our beloved Milwaukee, we need every American, from sea to shining sea, to get engaged and participate in our democratic process. Together, we are WINCONSIN!
