MADISON, Wis. — Governor Tony Evers released the following statement on Representative Sara Rodriguez’s election as the Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor.
“Congratulations to Representative Sara Rodriguez on being elected as the Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor. I’d also like to thank Peng Her for running a strong race and all that he’s done, and will continue to do, to build a brighter future for our state.
“Whether as a nurse, public health professional, small business owner, legislator, or as a working mom, Sara has dedicated her life to solving problems. Throughout her career in the public and private sector, Sara has taken on hard fights and won. Sara defeated a four-term Republican incumbent in 2020 and has been a crucial voice in the legislature advocating for public education, quality and affordable healthcare, and reproductive freedom.”
“The granddaughter of dairy farmers, Sara understands there is more that unites us than divides us. I’m thrilled to have Sara on our team and I look forward to working with her as we address the challenges facing our state and continue to do the right thing for Wisconsin.”
