Party sent delegates letter touting work with prez campaigns to help push for unity

In an effort to boost the party’s call for unity at the state convention, Wisconsin Dems sent activists a letter ahead of this weekend touting the efforts to work with both presidential campaigns.

Dems and Republicans have faced questions over how unified their party activists will be for this year’s presidential race following contentious primaries. That has included tensions at some Dem state conventions with Bernie Sanders backers balking at the delegate-selection process.

The letter was signed by state Chair Martha Laning and Vice-chair David Bowen along with Heather Colburn from Hillary Clinton's campaign and Peter Rickman from Sanders' camp.

The state party provided WisPolitics.com excerpts of the letters that tout cooperation between the party and both presidential campaigns to ensure the selection of delegates, national committee appointments and party resolutions have been “conducted in an open and transparent way.

“We are proud that these fairly represent not only the results of April’s election, but also of the great diversity we have across this great state,” the letter reads, according to the excerpts.

The letter also pledged continued efforts to “work together to ensure our convention remains an exciting and welcoming event for Democrats from every corner of this great state."
