Burkee and Walz for Congress

My uncle/ godfather James Burkee, professor at Concordia University in Mequon, is currently running for Congress with his friend Jeff Walz.


They are attempting to change government as we know it by running on the same ticket- my Uncle a Republican, Jeff Walz a Democrat. Should one win, the other will work with him in office so they will make bipartisan decisions. They are also not receiving any PAC donations, which is unheard of in current elections. This revolutionary way of running for Congress has captured a lot of media attention. See the news footage here:

Local Fox News

CBS News

Even if you do not live in Wisconsin, I would encourage you to visit their site just to learn more about what they are doing. It’s very interesting and it is causing quite a stir. It will be interesting to see how it goes!
