MILWAUKEE – In the week since the last debate, Leah Vukmir’s campaign has only grown more desperate as she remains down in the polls and has doubled-down on her pledge to cast the deciding vote to repeal health care and gut pre-existing condition protections.
“Leah Vukmir is down double-digits because Wisconsinites want someone who will work for them, not big insurance companies,” said campaign spokesman Bill Neidhardt. “We already know that Leah Vukmir will get desperate up on the debate stage and say anything to distract from her record, but voters take her at her word when she says she’ll cast the deciding vote to gut pre-existing condition protections.”
Every day of this week leading up to the final debate, Wisconsin voters heard about Leah Vukmir’s pledge to cast the deciding repeal vote:
MONDAY: A new microsite, TheDeciding.Vote, was launched by the Tammy Baldwin for Senate campaign to highlight Leah Vukmir’s pledge to cast the deciding vote to gut pre-existing condition protections.
TUESDAY: On WTMJ Milwaukee’s Steve Scaffidi Show, Leah Vukmir said: “I’m gonna fight like heck to beat Tammy Baldwin, so I can be that extra voice in the Senate. So, when a proposal does get passed over from the House it doesn’t fall short in the Senate like it did.”
WEDNESDAY: Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters what would happen if Leah Vukmir won the election, saying “If we had the votes to completely start over, we’d do it. But that depends on what happens in a couple weeks…”
THURSDAY: New, never-before-seen video footage showed Leah Vukmirtelling a Republican audience, “We’re going to be the reinforcement that’s needed in the United States Senate so that Vice President Pence doesn’t have to be that tiebreaker.”
TONIGHT: Watch the debate to see Leah Vukmir tell Wisconsinites she’ll proudly vote to take their health care away, increase premiums and gut pre-existing condition protections.
