"As a former candidate, I know that running for office is not an easy task, but real leaders don't stand on the sidelines, they get involved and work to be the change they wish to see in their communities. 

"I want thank all of the Democratic candidates who ran for office in yesterday's fall primary elections and extend my congratulations to all those who emerged victorious last night. 

"As we focus our attention to the general election, we know there are very important races on the ballot that we must win. I look forward to working with all of our candidates to ensure victories in November and deliver the progressive Democratic leadership that hard working families in Wisconsin deserve."
