November 09, 2022

Priorities USA Chairman Guy Cecil issued the following statement in response to Governor Tony Evers’ successful re-election campaign.

“I am thrilled that Wisconsinites have chosen to re-elect Tony Evers and continue to move Wisconsin forward.

“I am proud of the team at Priorities USA who have been communicating with voters in Wisconsin cycle after cycle. It is this kind of sustained commitment to voters and strong contrast message between progressive Democrats and regressive Republicans that helped deliver this historic victory. Priorities also committed to devoting a significant portion of our resources to communicating with Black and Latino voters, who are often overlooked in Wisconsin but play a decisive role in the state’s elections. In total, Priorities made a $2.6 million investment in the extremely competitive state.

“We are also grateful for our partners, A Better Wisconsin Together Political Fund, Color of Change and the American Federation of Teachers, who played a crucial role in our dynamic, effective online programming to persuade and mobilize key voters.

“Governor Tony Evers is a critical leader who will protect voting rights, abortion rights and other fundamental freedoms that Wisconsinites hold dear. I am extremely proud to congratulate his administration on another term of building a Wisconsin where everyone can thrive.”
