U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has endorsed Randy Bryce in the race for the 1st Congressional District seat.
Bryce, an ironworker from Caledonia, and Cathy Myers, a teacher and school board member from Janesville, are running for the Democratic nomination in the August 2018 primary.
Myers supported Hillary Clinton for president last year because “Cathy thought it was time for a woman to be president” but also supports Bernie Sanders, a spokesman said.
Sanders won all the counties in the 1st District in last year’s Democratic presidential primary except for Milwaukee County, a portion of which is in the district.
