Bernie San­ders en­dorses Randy Bryce for Congress

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - BUSINESS -

In­de­pen­dent U.S. Sen. Bernie San­ders of Ver­mont en­dorsed Demo­crat Randy Bryce, who is seek­ing to chal­lenge Repub­li­can House Speaker Paul Ryan next year.

The an­nounce­ment came in a video re­leased by the Bryce cam­paign Mon­day. The video fea­tures a con­ver­sa­tion be­tween Bryce, an iron­worker from Cale­do­nia, and San­ders, who ran for the Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial nom­i­na­tion in 2016.

“We’ve got to pro­tect So­cial Se­cu­rity, Medi­care, and Med­i­caid from peo­ple like Paul Ryan,” San­ders said in a state­ment. “I think Randy Bryce has an agenda that is go­ing to make sense to work­ing fam­i­lies. We need Randy in Congress.”

In the Au­gust 2018 Demo­cratic pri­mary, Bryce faces Cathy My­ers, a Janesville School Board mem­ber.
