Sanders Plans to 'Make a Splash' at Convo

Democrat Henry Sanders, challenging long-time Madison incumbent Rep. Dave Travis in a primary this year, says he plans on making a splash at the convention, and he's criticizing Travis for saying he won't attend.

"Dave Travis says he wants to take back the majority, but does he fight for it? No, he stays home," Sanders said. "This is all-hands-on-deck time, and he stays home. Sitting on the sidelines while other people roll up their sleeves to fight for working families is not leadership."

Sanders is also touting more than a dozen endorsements from current and former Madison-area elected officials, including past school board president Juan Jose Lopez; current school board president Johnny Winston; Madison alders Paul Van Rooy, Brian Benford, Lauren Cnare and Zach Brandon; county board supervisors Dorothy Wheeler, Richard Brown and Vern Wendt; former county board supervisor Jim Mohrbacher; former Wisconsin Heights school board member Terry Moyer; and Waunakee trustees Sue Springman and Al Rabin.

In a new WisPolitics interview, DPW Chair Joe Wineke said he doesn't get personally involved in races, but said his wife would be giving money to Travis before the primary.
