(Oshkosh, WI) – State Sen. Glenn Grothman, Republican candidate for Congress, has earned the endorsement of two prominent conservatives in the race for Congress in Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District.
Conservative radio talk show host Jay Weber, who hosts The Jay Weber Show weekday mornings on Milwaukee’s News/Talk 1130 WISN, told his listeners last week that Grothman is the best candidate.
“I don’t think the choice is difficult here. If you’re a conservative who wants to see someone sent to Washington who’s going to work hard, who is going to fight to move this country to the right […] that’s Glenn Grothman,” said Weber.
Charlie Sykes, host of Midday with Charlie Sykes on Milwaukee’s News Radio 620 WTMJ and Editor in Chief of the conservative news website RightWisconsin.com, said today that he’ll be voting for Grothman. In an piece posted to Right Wisconsin, Sykes, who is a resident of the 6th Congressional District, relayed his support:
“[Glenn’s] passion for taking on complex issues makes him a rarity in politics, even in a state like Wisconsin where he is surrounded by conservative reformers.”
Sykes continued: “The surprising thing about Grothman is that despite his association with hot button social issues, he has been remarkably effective as a legislator on a variety of issues, ranging from legislation providing for early voting uniformity, to tort reform, and job-creating tax cuts.”
Grothman released the following statement regarding the endorsements:
“I’m honored to have the trust, confidence, and endorsement from both Jay Weber and Charlie Sykes. These two hosts are conservative stalwarts who are on the frontline every day fighting the liberal bias in the news. They bring a much-needed conservative perspective to their many listeners throughout the 6th Congressional District. I’m honored that they believe I’m the best candidate to go to Congress to address the many challenges facing our country.”
Grothman is a Republican candidate for Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District. He currently represents the 20th Senate District in the Wisconsin State Senate. The 6th Congressional District includes the counties of Ozaukee, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Winnebago, Dodge, Green Lake, Manitowoc, Marquette, Columbia, Waushara, and Milwaukee.
