SOMERSET – Former Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton announced her support of Senator Patty Schachtner’s re-election bid.

“What a luxury to have someone with Patty Schachtner’s vision and integrity serving in our legislature! Her experience on a school board, town board and as county medical examiner and first responder inform her strategic work in areas critical to the 10th district, to us all really— small businesses, agriculture and tourism; protecting our recreation lands; strengthening higher ed. accessibility. We desperately need Patty’s strong, wise voice guiding the WI State Senate,” said Lawton.

During her time as Wisconsin’s Lieutenant Governor, Lawton worked to advance economic development and ensure clean elections. She has fought against corruption and for reformed campaign finance laws for her entire career.

“I am honored to have Barbara’s support in this critical election. She knows what it takes to serve the working people of Wisconsin and support a more transparent government. We are ready to win in November and Barbara is making our team stronger,” said Patty.
