Janet Bewley announces new TV and digital ad campaign highlighting
record of delivering for Northern Wisconsin



Mason, WI - Today, Janet Bewley
announced a new TV and digital ad campaign for her re-election effort. The ad
highlights Janet’s record of delivering for Northern Wisconsin. It will air
across Wisconsin’s 25th Senate District.



In the State Senate, Janet
Bewley has fought to expand access to health care, fully-fund public schools,
and invest in skills training. She has also fought to keep resources here in
Northern Wisconsin, voting for a $50 million rural economic development fund
and championing the “Better City Superior” project.



“I have traveled thousands of
miles to fight for Northern Wisconsin families,” said Janet Bewley. “When it
comes to Northern Wisconsin, we know that economic development goes hand in
hand with community development. That’s why I have fought to protect access to
health care - including coverage for pre-existing conditions - and invest in
each of the 40 school districts I have the privilege to represent.



“I am proud of my record of
fighting for Northern Wisconsin and look forward to continuing to fight for you
in the state senate,” concluded Bewley.

Weekly News from Your Wisconsin Democratic Party Chair

Tammy has said it, and Tony knows it too..



Health care is on the ballot in November.

We know our Senator Baldwin has worked extremely hard to make sure every Wisconsinites’ health care is protected.
That’s why she called out Leah Vukmir during Monday's debate for siding with insurance companies over Wisconsinites in need of health care.





Since her earliest days in the state legislature, Leah Vukmir has consistently supported letting powerful insurance companies write their own rules and deny coverage to Wisconsinites in need of health care treatment. She..
  • Blocked and voted against oral chemotherapy coverage
  • Opposed coverage for kids’ cochlear implants and hearing aids
  • Blocked and opposed coverage for mental health care and substance abuse coverage
The choice couldn’t be clearer: Tammy is on our side, while Leah will continue to do the bidding of big insurance companies if elected to the U.S. Senate.




Once again, Tony Evers called on Scott Walker to withdraw Wisconsin from his dangerous ACA repeal lawsuit that would jeopardize protections for roughly 2 million Wisconsinites living with a pre-existing condition



Health care was also a focus in the gubernatorial race this week. While Governor Walker was fundraising and flying around the state with VP Mike Pence, Democrats in Green Bay and Eau Claire came out in numbers to oppose the Pence-Walker health care agenda that would jack up rates, threaten protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions, and kick millions off their insurance.






Tony Evers took time this week to lay out his own plan to make drug prices more affordable for hardworking Wisconsinites. I trust Tony to create policies that are what real Wisconsinites need, unlike Governor Walker who has time and time again put his personal political ambitions before the needs of our state.

Tony's plan would...
  • Stop prescription price gouging & consumer exploitation
  • Support safely reimporting prescription drugs from Canada at a lower cost to Wisconsin families
  • Protect and expand SeniorCare for Wisconsin's seniors
  • Demand transparency & accountability from Big Pharma
  • Save Wisconsin taxpayers dollars by reducing state expenses on prescription drug purchases


























Eau Claire City Council passes gun safety resolution



I want to extend a big thank you to the Eau Claire City Council for passing a resolution calling on our legislators to pass real, lifesaving gun reform policies.

The Second Amendment and responsible gun ownership can go hand-in-hand -- Wisconsinites want to strike a balance between the two. We know that the majority of Wisconsinites support universal background checks and that we are ready to have real conversations about the importance of balancing the rights of gun owners with policies that promote responsible gun ownership.

We should be having conversations like the ones that Eau Claire had to address the serious issue of gun violence in our communities.
We can’t wait for the next mass shooting to take action--we should be calling on our legislators to make real change happen now to protect our classrooms, our libraries, our movie theaters, our communities NOW.
