A court ruling today will force Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to hold special elections for two State Senate seats he had been illegally leaving vacant out of a fear that Democrats would win in special elections.
It’s no secret that Governor Walker has been running scared. He recently emailed his supporters, “We could lose” and called a Democratic victory in another State Senate special election “a wake-up call.”
“Scott Walker is so afraid of Wisconsin voters that he illegally blocked special elections,”said DGA Press Secretary Melissa Miller. “But this November, Scott Walker can’t hide from his own election. Voters will have the opportunity to tell Scott Walker that they’re sick and tired of his broken policies failing Wisconsin.”
