Yesterday, Ron launched his next statewide TV and digital ad on helping a Wisconsin family bring their adopted daughter home from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
When Ron heard about the challenges facing the Craig family and other Wisconsin families, he personally stepped in, helping to pass legislation and creating pressure for the Congolese government to release the children. Read more about Ron working for Wisconsin families:
