Wis. AFL-CIO endorses state candidates


MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Wisconsin's AFL-CIO leadership is endorsing two candidates on the ballot for state office.

In the first endorsement, the AFL-CIO is backing incumbent Tony Evers for State Superintendent.

"Tony Evers has stood up for Wisconsin's kids and working families at every turn, fighting back against devastating cuts in funding to our education system," said Phil Neuenfeldt, President of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO.  "Tony Evers understands the vital role public schools play in providing a pathway into the middle class for Wisconsin children." 

Evers faces Don Pridemore in the April election.

They are also supporting Ed Fallone of Whitefish Bay for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

"Ed Fallone is the most qualified candidate running for Wisconsin Supreme Court," said Phil Neuenfeldt, President of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO. "He has the experience, integrity and independence to ensure that the law is applied fairly and equally to all Wisconsinites.  We believe he will be an ethical and impartial judge bringing balance and civility to our courts."

Fallone is one of three candidates on the February 19th primary ballot.  Incumbent Pat Roggensack is on the ballot along with Vince Megna.

The top two will advance to the April election.
