Cooke campaign: ICYMI: Patriotic Millionaires announces endorsement of Rebecca Cooke’s campaign for Congress

EAU CLAIRE, Wisc. – Today, Patriotic Millionaires announced their endorsement of Rebecca Cooke’s campaign for Congress in Wisconsin’s Third District. Patriotic Millionaires is a group of high-net worth Americans who share a profound concern about the destabilizing level of inequality in America and work to ensure that the country’s political economy is structured to meet the needs of regular Americans, rather than just millionaires and the wealthy.

“The Patriotic Millionaires are proud to endorse Rebecca Cooke to represent Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional district! Raised on a Eau Claire dairy farm, Rebecca knows how our economy prioritizes the interests of the ultra-rich and will work to unrig the system for working people,” Patriotic Millionaires said while making their endorsement. 

“I am glad to have the support of the Patriotic Millionaires and their in-district project Economic Equity Now! because it has never been more urgent to ensure that our economy actually delivers for working people,” Cooke said. “Prices are rising and wages aren’t keeping pace. Too many families are struggling to make ends meet, dealing with costly healthcare bills, and unable to find affordable childcare. Our tax code – which prioritizes the wealthy class over the working class – is just one part of that enormous problem.”

Rebecca Cooke’s campaign recently announced raising over $600,000 during the second quarter of 2024 and released a poll which shows her in a dead heat against general election opponent Derrick Van Orden. To read the poll memo, please click here.

In addition to Patriotic Millionaires, she has earned endorsements from the Blue Dog Caucus, New Democratic Coalition, Communication Workers of America, American Postal Workers Union, as well as Reps. Marie Glusenkamp Perez, Jared Golden, and Mike Thompson among others.
