Today, Russ for Wisconsin announced the endorsement of the American Nurses Association.
In their endorsement the ANA cited Russ’s commitment to expanding access to affordable healthcare, working to reduce the crushing costs of prescription drugs, and his bipartisan record of increased rural healthcare access.
The American Nurses Association (ANA) represents 3.6 million registered nurses across the country. ANA advances the nursing profession by fostering high standards of nursing practice, promoting a safe and ethical work environment, bolstering the health and wellness of nurses, and advocating on health care issues that affect nurses and the public.
