Miwaukee, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) -- Former U.S Representative for Wisconsin’s 7th district, Dave Obey endorsed Tom Barrett for Governor.

Obey released a statement Monday saying that Barrett will focus on jobs, restore collective bargaining rights and undo the damage Governor Scott Walker has done to Wisconsin’s education system.

Obey also says, “He will rebuild constructive relationships, and bring people together to heal our state. I’m also supporting Barrett because we need to win this governor’s race, and Tom is our best and strongest candidate to defeat Scott Walker in June.”
