U.S. Senate hopeful Sarah Godlewski says hello to La Crosse small business owners

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Wisconsin State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski made her first stop in La Crosse after announcing her run for the U.S. Senate.

Godlewski has joined the field of Democrats that are running for the seat now held by Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who has not announced whether he will seek a third term.

While in La Crosse, Godlewski met with local small business owners to talk about recovering from the pandemic.

“What’s great about the American rescue plan is it invests into the people,” she said. “Whether that’s with $1,400 checks or small business money it’s going directly to people so they can actually, in turn, build the economy back better. I think that’s exactly what we need to do when we think about recovery. It’s about investing in our people.”

Godlewski joins Alex Lasry, Tom Nelson and Gillian Battino seeking the Democratic nomination.
