Trump lands in our district to take credit for Obama project

MENOMINEE, Mich. | MARINETTE, Wisc. -- President Trump is landing Marine One in the First District to visit Fincantieri Marinette Marine. It should come as no surprise Trump is using this event to take credit for a Navy project started by the Obama Administration. This contract is a win for both Wisconsin and Michigan, but make no mistake, Donald Trump is no friend of working Americans.

Ahead of President Donald Trump's visit, Biden said it best.

"The heart of America beats in manufacturing communities like Marinette. It's where generations of workers have forged the ships that allow America to project power and keep the peace around the world.

With the help of leaders like Senator Tammy Baldwin, the Obama-Biden Administration invested in shipbuilding in Marinette and fostered good-paying jobs across the Fox Valley to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for the better part of a decade.

Today, Donald Trump is in Marinette to take credit for Obama-Biden Administration-fueled successes in an attempt to paper over the fact that Wisconsin has been bleeding blue-collar manufacturing jobs over the past few weeks. Instead of offering real relief to working families, he’s trying to claim credit for progress in Marinette he did not build.

Donald Trump doesn’t appreciate or respect the struggle of generations of workers... because he’s never lived that struggle. It shows. Today, his Administration is filing a brief with the Supreme Court to rip health care coverage away from 23 million Americans...

Every American deserves the peace of mind that comes access to affordable, high-quality health care. No one in this country should have to lay in bed at night staring at the ceiling wondering what they will do if their husband or wife has a heart attack or their son or daughter gets cancer. But if Donald Trump gets his way, many sleepless nights await families across this nation."

We need to bring reason back to the Oval Office, but first, we have our own fight here in Northern Michigan. I'm running because my Republican opponent, Jack Bergman, is the epitome of what's wrong on Capitol Hill.

When Rep. Bergman had the chance to stand up and do the right thing, he instead voted to acquit Donald Trump.

He gave the President an "A+" on his handling of COVID-19. Over one hundred thousand are dead and over two million were infected in the United States. After House Democrats unveiled their plan to uplift suffering families and Main Street workers, he rejected the HEROES Act characterizing the bill package as a “socialist...feckless political stunt."

Jack Bergman is out-of-touch with hard-working Michiganders and tone deaf to the problems facing our nation.

This isn't leadership.

Jack Bergman doesn't represent the people of Northern Michigan, and he sure doesn't represent me.

I am proud to have the support of the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights, AFSCME Council 25 and over 60 local elected officials, candidates, and community leaders.

Our nation is at a crossroads. When Trump is officially retired from politics on Jan. 20, 2021, a new administration is going to need pragmatic progressives in Congress who will have its back.

We are coming up on our end of quarter deadline on June 30, setting the stage for our primary on Tues. Aug 4.

I can't do this alone. I need the help of supporters like you. Can I count on you to join our campaign by making a contribution today?
