“Janel has been a trusted help in my past campaigns, and is an elected official with an track record as an experienced conservative leader. She's a good, solid, business owner and a conservative, principled woman. I know that she will continue the fight in Madison to advance our conservative agenda.” said Don Pridemore.
“Don has been a steadfast leader for conservatives to look up to over his ten years in the Assembly. He went to Madison, and he did what he said he was going to do. While he was a good Republican, he never hesitated to vote against his party if he believed that it was right. I am honored to accept his endorsement and will continue the fight on behalf of conservatives in Madison.” said Janel Brandtjen.
