Wisconsin Democrats Launch Forward for Wisconsin 

The historically unmatched midterm coordinated campaign will help re-elect Gov. Evers, defeat Ron Johnson, and elect Democrats up and down the ballot.

MADISON, Wis. – Today, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, Tony for Wisconsin, and national partners including the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic National Committee officially launched Forward for Wisconsin, the largest midterm coordinated campaign in Wisconsin history. This unprecedented effort will help elect leaders across the state who will always put Wisconsin’s working families first.

By registering, persuading, and turning out voters across Wisconsin, Forward for Wisconsin will expand upon the winning coalitions from 2018 and 2020 and play a vital role in re-electing Governor Evers, defeating Ron Johnson, and electing Democratic candidates up and down the ticket.

Forward for Wisconsin will make early and significant investments in communities of color, tribal and rural communities, build a robust campus organizing program as well as fully fund a voter protection program that will ensure Wisconsinites’ right to vote and ensure fair and free elections.

Upon the announcement of the launch of Forward for Wisconsin, Wisconsin leaders released the following statements:

Governor Tony Evers: “More than ever, it’s critical that we work together and continue to do the right thing for Wisconsin. Elections in our state always come down to a handful of votes, and organizing early is crucial to making sure we are successful again in 2022. That’s why I’m proud to be part of Forward for Wisconsin, the largest midterm coordinated campaign in the history of our state. It’s never been more important to elect leaders who believe in democracy, protecting access to healthcare, and giving our kids the best chance to succeed. I know Wisconsin Democrats are unified and ready to win in November.”

Senator Tammy Baldwin: “Forward for Wisconsin will be a pivotal player in this year’s midterm elections as we work to elect another Senator committed to fighting for Wisconsin workers and families. I need a partner in the U.S. Senate who is squarely focused on serving the people of the Badger State, instead of serving themselves. Through this unmatched midterm effort, I am confident we will elect leaders across our state who will move Wisconsin forward.”

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler: “In 2022, Wisconsin Democrats are ready to reelect leaders like Governor Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul, and to elect a U.S. Senator who will always put Wisconsin first. We are thrilled to be launching Forward for Wisconsin today with our national partners, which will have the statewide organizing strength and resources to elect Democrats up and down the ticket who will fight every day for Wisconsin families.”
