Milwaukee – On Tuesday, September 6, IUPAT member and Wisconsin State Representative Mark Pocan declared his candidacy for for the seat of U.S. Representative Tammy Baldwin. Baldwin is vacating her seat to run for the U.S. Senate.

Pocan, an IUPAT member of District Council 7/Local Union 770 in Milwaukee since 1990, promised the crowd that he’d make fighting for Wisconsin families in Washington one of his highest priorities.

As the The Daily Cardinal of the University of Wisconsin reported, Pocan said that “if standing up to Scott Walker was the first battle, standing up to Paul Ryan and his brand of anti-government radicalism may well be the defining one.”
