The National Organization for Women has endorsed Cathy Myers of Janesville in the race for the 1st Congressional District seat.

Lindsay Lemmer, president of NOW’s Wisconsin chapter, is quoted in A news release as saying Myers “has spent her career elevating the status of women, from being part of the first full class of women to attend Westminster College, to her extensive volunteer work empowering women in her community, to her work on the Janesville School Board.

"As the twice-elected commissioner of the Janesville School Board and as a high school teacher, she has worked tirelessly to improve outcomes for the next generation of Wisconsinites. She’s led on initiatives reducing discrimination and protecting the civil rights of the youth in her community.”

Myers and Randy Bryce of Caledonia are expected to face each other in the Democratic primary Aug. 14.
