Progressive champions

Wisconsin Progress candidates are progressive champions. They are passionate community leaders dedicated to making their neighborhoods better places to live, work, and raise a family.  Wisconsin's working families are struggling in current political climate and it is these local leaders who can make the biggest impact on their daily lives.

We've endorsed over 200 local progressive candidates across the state and 70% of them won their elections. 20 of our endorsed candidates are currently serving in the State Legislature. We're so proud of these candidates and their contributions to their communities and we're excited to work with a new crop of candidates this year!
