MENOMONIE, WI — The largest progressive group of veterans in America, VoteVets, is today endorsing Deb McGrath for Congress in Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional District.
“With so many external threats from abroad and at home, we need someone with Deb’s experience in the military and security, as a credible voice in Congress,” said Will Fischer, Iraq War Veteran and Senior Advisor for VoteVets. “Deb knows what it takes to keep America and Wisconsin families safe. But, more so, she’s been deeply involved in the kitchen table issues that families face, and knows what it will take to keep our families strong, as well. We’re proud to endorse her.”
Born and raised in western Wisconsin, Deb McGrath is a former Army Captain, CIA officer, and working mother of three children. She and her husband, Colonel (Ret.) Kevin McGrath raised their three children with an emphasis on public and community service.
