Madison, Wisconsin – After tonight’s election of underdog Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate race, where Gov. Scott Walker, Speaker Paul Ryan, Attorney General Brad Schimel and Senator Ron Johnson refused to denounce or stop the national party they lead from attempting to prop up Roy Moore, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning released this statement:
“American values won tonight. It was a victory of the people, unity triumphing over division. Alabama took a a stand and demonstrated to our country what really makes America great — our unity and our principles.
“I hope Gov. Scott Walker, Speaker Paul Ryan and all the Wisconsin Republicans who silently permitted their national party’s propping up of hatred, bigotry and sexism are paying attention tonight. The people of Alabama did not accept hatred and division – and neither do the people of Wisconsin.”
