Julian Bradley for Secretary of State
Contribute
Republicans from around the state overwhelmingly endorsed Julian Bradley at the party convention in May. Julian is proud to join Governor Walker and the rest of the ticket on the August 12th ballot. It's time for a change in the Secretary of State's office. The current Secretary of State has spent 36 years collecting a salary and watching the office crumble. It's time we reform, restore, and rebuild the office so it works for the people of Wisconsin again.

The Secretary of State should work alongside the Governor and Attorney General with the shared goal of moving Wisconsin forward. Traveling around the state Julian has found that Republicans, Democrats, and Independents in Wisconsin all agree: It's Time.

About Julian

Julian Bradley, 33, is the Republican Party of Wisconsin endorsed candidate for Secretary of State. He’s a conservative grassroots leader with an agenda to make the office better serve the people of Wisconsin.

He’s running because he believes the three-decade incumbent has squandered the respect the Secretary of State once had. He’ll reform the office with active and transparent leadership, restore lost duties and trust, and rebuild bridges burned by the current occupant.

Biography

Julian was born in Baltimore on February 11, 1981. At the age of 11 he and his mom moved to La Crosse; Julian graduated from Central High School in 1999. Inspired by his mother’s energetic example, he studied political science at Temple University and later at UW-La Crosse.

Julian’s mother, a staunch Democrat, often discussed politics with him. After a particularly spirited debate, which concluded with his mom telling him he sounded like a Republican, Julian did some research and found that she was right. Julian realized his pragmatic, conservative values were better suited for the Republican Party. He joined the La Crosse GOP in 2002.

Since then he’s become a conservative grassroots leader in Wisconsin. He ran for the Wisconsin Assembly in 2010, chaired the Republican Party of La Crosse County, and won election in 2013 as vice chairman of the 3rd District Republican Party, which spans 18 counties in western and central Wisconsin. He is also on the Wisconsin GOP’s executive committee.

In 2013 Julian began touring the state on his “Shattering Stereotypes” speaking tour, sharing his story of being a black Republican and former Democrat rising through the ranks in Wisconsin politics. He received Charlie Sykes’ Right Wisconsin Grassroots Activist of the Year award for 2013.

In addition to the many hats he’s worn in Wisconsin politics, Julian is a manager with a major telecommunications company in La Crosse, where he’s worked for nearly 10 years.
