Tom Barrett statement on Dave Obey

MILWAUKEE (PRESS RELEASE)--

  
"For more than four decades, Dave Obey has been a champion of reform and justice, and a voice in Congress for those too often pushed aside by special interests and powerful insiders. A leader in the fight for health care, for jobs, for working families, for education, for civil rights, for veterans, for the middle class, and for the less fortunate among us, Dave has also always been a fierce advocate for Wisconsin. In an era where far too many politicians aren't straight with people, Dave always said exactly what he believed, and let you know exactly where you stood. His presence and leadership will be missed, and I thank him deeply for the tremendous example he has set for all of us in public life."
