(Madison) — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Matt Flynn today earned the endorsement of former Wisconsin Governor Tony Earl.
“I have known Matt Flynn for 40 years. He will be a strong and effective governor,” said Earl. “I am very happy to endorse him and I look forward to voting for him this year.”
Earl served as governor from 1983 to 1987. A former prosecutor, he had previously served as Secretary of the Department of Administration and Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources under Governor Patrick Lucey. Before that he served as a member of the State Assembly for northern Wisconsin.
“I am very proud to have Governor Earl’s support today,” said Flynn. “Wisconsin has a tradition of clean, honest government going back to Robert La Follette. Tony Earl was a stalwart against corruption during his term. Scott Walker has soiled our record. As governor, I will restore clean, honest government in Wisconsin.”
