JANESVILLE, Wis. – First Congressional District candidate Bryan Steil’s campaign released the following statement regarding Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders’ visit to Kenosha to campaign for Randy Bryce:

Andrew Iverson, Campaign Spokesman: “Randy Bryce continues to run a campaign focused on anywhere but Southeast Wisconsin. Whether it’s abolishing ICE or a $32 trillion government takeover of healthcare, Randy Bryce supports Bernie Sanders’ socialist agenda that will raise taxes on Wisconsin families and concentrate power in Washington, DC. Bryan Steil is focused on real solutions to help the people of the First District. In Congress, he’ll work to create more high wage jobs, lower the cost of healthcare while protecting coverage for pre-existing conditions and prepare the workforce for the jobs for the future.”

Bryce has also called for abolishing ICE. Steil has been endorsed by all six sheriffs, Democrats and Republicans.
