MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WMTV) -Milwaukee Bucks executive Alex Lasry has announced his is running for a seat in the U.S. Senate in 2022 as democrat. The 33-year-old made the announcement Wednesday morning.

“We’ve lived through three systemic shocks to the system over the last 20 years: 9/11, the Great Recession and now this pandemic, and Washington still hasn’t fixed things,” Lasry is quoted as saying in an email to the media.. “We need to rethink everything and chart a new way forward. We can’t just continue with the same people and expect anything to change.”

Lasry is the senior vice president of the Bucks and the son of the Bucks owner Marc Lasry. Before joining the Bucks, Lasry worked in the Obama White House.
