Received this e-mail today from actor and activist, Bradley Whitford, on behalf of the Wisconsin Democratic Party:
Bradley Whitford here. You may know me from shows like the West Wing and The Handmaid’s Tale. But what a lot of people don’t know about me is that I’m from Wisconsin.
I was born and went to high school there. In fact, I graduated from Madison East High in 1977. And I’ve been going back to Wisconsin almost every election cycle since 2000 to campaign in the state.
This year the stakes are higher than ever before. And that’s why I’m asking you to join me in supporting the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. They are building an organizing army to defeat Trump, but they can’t do it alone.
What I love most about Wisconsin are the people. My life has gotten crazy since my childhood there. But what keeps me grounded are the people I grew up around.
Wisconsinites are humble and kind and they deeply care. In short, Wisconsinites are the opposite of Donald Trump.
Under the Trump-Pence administration, we’ve had the normalization of racism, misogyny, and economic injustice.
While Wisconsin farmers have a deep respect for the planet and the land that they tend, the Trump administration has a contempt for the environment.
I’ve always been proud of the fact that I’m from Wisconsin and I’m looking forward to working hand-in-hand with the Wisconsin Democratic Party this year to ensure not only that Trump loses, but that decency wins. The decency that I’ve known since my childhood in Wisconsin. The decency I’ve seen from Wisconsinites across the state.
Thanks for all you do,
Bradley Whitford for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin
