MADISON -- The following is a statement from state Senator Dave Hansen on today's announcement of Representative John Nygren's candidacy for the 30th Senate District.
 
"If there is an election and if John wins the primary I look forward to educating the voters of the 30th district on his extreme agenda.

“Whether it's attacking workers' rights, denying our prosecutors the tools they need to keep our communities safe, supporting crippling cuts to our schools or raising taxes on low income working families while supporting more and more tax breaks for corporations, when all is said and done the voters will have a clear choice.

"I'm proud of my record and reputation as someone who works hard for hard working families and I am confident that if an election is called the voters will support my efforts at the polls."
