What they are saying about the Club for Growth’s lies about Scott Walker and Leah Vukmir

Wisconsin conservatives know Leah Vukmir is a tried-and-true conservative — especially when the worst her opponents can do is call her a RINO and say she stood with Scott Walker to pass his historic budgets.

“For some reason, national Club for Growth is certain that the former Democrat is going to be the real fiscal hawk and tax cutter and be more committed to it than Leah Vukmir’s been. And this is as Leah Vukmir’s been one of the most committed tax and spending cutters in the Wisconsin Legislature…. The very endorsement is laughable and questionable. And the reasoning from the Club for Growth leadership is getting nuttier and nuttier as they try to defend the endorsement.” — Jay Weber, News/Talk 1130 WISN
“They [David McIntosh and the Club for Growth] are attacking the entire conservative revolution that’s happened in Wisconsin since 2011.” — Jerry Bader, 1360 WTAQ
“Club for Growth is going to criticize Leah Vukmir for standing for Scott Walker on those two votes [the 2011 and 2015 budgets]? And yet they did. And they stood by it even when I called them on it.” — James Wigderson, Right Wisconsin, on the Jerry Bader Show
“Think about it. This is how stupid this has gotten. You have got people from outside thinking voters are too stupid and they will just believe the crack that voting for Act 10 is somehow proof-positive that you’re a RINO…. And when someone comes in from outside the state of Wisconsin and says that because that budget increased spending… but it included Act 10, the most consequential state budget reform in the history of state budget reforms!” — Vicki McKenna, 1310 WIBA
“Maybe Nicholson doesn’t think Vukmir’s a good person or has a good record, or maybe he thinks she’s fooling people, she’s the fraud. Well then, have the stones to say it yourself. Say, ‘I support the Club for Growth attacks. I think they’re accurate. I think that Act 10 budget was terrible.’ And explain why.”  — Jay Weber, News/Talk 1130 WISN
“It’s part of a pattern of “say anything” just to attack “the establishment,” regardless of the consequences or context. Some conservative groups use this tactic to fundraise while others use this tactic in Republican primaries. But in their attack on Vukmir, Club for Growth exposed their own hypocrisy and destroyed their credibility.” — James Wigderson, Right Wisconsin
“That’s the thing that’s simply amazing is how conservative [the 2011 budget] was and the trend that it started in state Legislatures around the country. What Club for Growth is doing here is essentially dissing Scott Walker. And Kevin Nicholson, I just don’t think he can stay on the sidelines in that debate.” — Jerry Bader, 1380 WTAQ
Leah Vukmir is a nurse, military mom and conservative with a proven record of reform who is running to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington. She currently serves as a state senator from Brookfield.
