“The people of Wisconsin are terrific people, you are the lifeblood and fabric of our country. You represent everything our country stands for: life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I’m endorsing Jonathan because he demonstrates extraordinary leadership. He is exactly the type of person we need. He is all about health freedom, he is all about protecting our rights, especially our 2nd Amendment,” said Flynn of Wichmann.
Of the endorsement, Wichmann said, “I am both humbled and honored to have General Flynn’s endorsement. I am grateful to have received it and thank General Flynn for his vote of confidence in my leadership capabilities.”
