Racine County Tavern League Endorses Wanggaard
– Today the Racine County Tavern League announced it has endorsed Van Wanggaard’s candidacy for state senate.
“I am proud to receive the endorsement of the Racine County Tavern League,” Wanggaard stated. “Along with working hard to provide jobs to residents of Racine County, the Racine County Tavern League is extremely active with charitable causes locally.
“It is exciting to have this local organization’s backing as I spread my message of fiscal responsibility, and fight to put an end to big-government overregulation and excessive taxation.
“Small business owners are the backbone of our economy, and misguided policies, like the creation of a new income-tax bracket that affected 20,000 small businesses statewide, need to be stopped in their tracks.
“With the Racine County Tavern League’s endorsement, it sends a message to Racine County taxpayers that I will fight for them, and their jobs, as their next state senator.”
The Racine County Tavern League is made up of 51-privately owned taverns in Racine County and elsewhere.
Wanggaard, a Republican, is running against 14-year incumbent senator John Lehman for the 21
st state senate district seat.
