In a survey submitted to nonpartisan iVoterGuide, Jill Millies revealed her extreme liberal values. Indicating support for taxpayer funding for abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, more restrictive gun control, and tuition-free public education through college.
“There is only one conservative in the race for Wisconsin State Treasurer.” stated Hartwig. “It appears my primary opponent selected the wrong party on her campaign papers or was intentionally attempting to mislead the public. Either way, she should do the right thing now and withdraw from this race.”
Samuel Wahlen, former Chairman of the Racine County Republican Party, was one of the first to call on Jill Millies to step out of the race this week. “Republicans around the state need to consolidate around the only conservative in the race, and that’s Travis Hartwig” said Wahlen. “Jill Millies is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. She is pretending to be a republican but doesn’t share our values.”
The Hartwig campaign is recommending The Republican Party of Wisconsin and local chapters inform their members about the deception and encourage their members to vote for Travis Hartwig.
iVoterGuide released a head-to-head comparison of the two Republican candidates running for State Treasurer and it found that Travis Hartwig is the only conservative running for the statewide position.
When asked about the subject of healthcare, Ms. Millies responded “Not sure yet?? Maybe repel Obama care, this seemed to make many happy!”
The research also showed that while Mr. Hartwig has voted consistently during his lifetime, Ms. Millies rarely votes. For example, she did not vote during the last spring election when the referendum on the Treasurer’s Office was held.
A primary for the Republican nomination for State Treasurer will be held Tuesday, August 14. The general election will be Tuesday, November 6.
