Barrett Picks Up Endorsement, Says He Will Restore Collective Bargaining

By Adam McCoy and Mark Schaaf,

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett picked up another endorsement Monday, from U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee), in his push to grab the Democratic nod and unseat Gov. Scott Walker in June’s recall election.

Voters are a little more than three weeks away from tapping Walker’s Democratic challenger, and Barrett was on the campaign trail in Milwaukee touting how his administration would end Wisconsin’s political civil war and restore collective bargaining and tax fairness, while fielding the endorsement from Moore.

Barrett will square off against former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk, state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout (D-Alma) and Secretary of State Doug La Follette in a Democratic primary May 8. The winner will take on Walker on June 5.
