Wisconsin Statewide Races

Wisconsin Governor

Tony Evers

PPAWI is proud to endorse Governor Tony Evers’ reelection campaign. During his first term in office, Governor Evers has shown the people of Wisconsin exactly who he is: a champion for women’s health and a leader who will fight to ensure that everyone has access to the health care they need, when they need it.

Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor

Sarah Rodriguez

PPAWI is proud to endorse Sara Rodriguez for Lieutenant Governor. Sara is a Nurse by profession, community leader, public health professional, and entrepreneur. In her campaign for State Representative, she was one of very few Democrats in the country to flip a Republican-held district, which demonstrates that she is a tested candidate who can win a very competitive district while still running on a strong progressive platform.

Wisconsin Attorney General

Josh Kaul

PPAWI is proud to endorse Attorney General Josh Kaul’s reelection campaign. Time and time again, Attorney General Kaul has worked to demonstrate his commitment to advancing reproductive rights by advocating for fairness and actively working to remove barriers to reproductive health care. That unwavering commitment to protect people’s ability to make their own reproductive health care decisions is more important than ever.

Wisconsin State Treasurer

Aaron Richardson

PPAWI is proud to endorse Aaron Richardson for State Treasurer. Aaron Richardson is currently serving as the Mayor of Fitchburg and is running to the State Treasurer’s seat which is being vacated by longtime champion of reproductive right, Sarah Godlewski. Aaron is a Pro-choice candidate running against Republican, John Leiber who was endorsed by four current anti-choice State Legislators.
