U.S. Senate Candidate Godlewski says she stands apart in crowded Democratic field

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — With the August primary right around the corner, one Democratic candidate for Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate seat is on a “Barn Storm” of the state.

Sarah Godlewski, who is currently serving as the state treasurer of Wisconsin, spoke with voters today at La Crosse’s JavaVino.

With a crowded field of Democratic candidates hoping to oust Republican Ron Johnson, Godlewski says she can stand apart from the rest.

The Eau Claire native says she’s been focused on reproductive rights her entire campaign.

“We have been seeing how now we are set back to a law from 1849, and for me, reproductive rights have never been an afterthought,” said Godlewski. “Now that Roe’s been overturned, I’m not just talking about this issue, I’ve been talking about this issue since the day I got in this race.”

Godlewski also said if she’s voted into office, she wants to serve on the agricultural committee, since the current Farm Bill expires next year.

Currently, neither Wisconsin senator serves on that committee.
