[Madison, WI] — The Democrat candidates running for governor in Wisconsin have shown time and again they’ll put the wishes of their far-left base before the hard-working taxpayers. With only four days until Tax Day, these candidates hold dangerous positions on taxes putting them in stark contrast with Governor Walker and Republican leaders – who have provided over $8 billion in total tax relief.
“The Democrats vying to be their party’s gubernatorial nominee are running on a platform of higher taxes on hard-working families,” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Thanks to Governor Scott Walker, Wisconsinites are seeing over $8 billion in total tax relief since taking office and the elimination of the state property tax. Scott Walker is standing up for Wisconsin taxpayers.”

- Tax-and-spend liberal Kathleen Vinehout authored what would have been the largest tax increase in Wisconsin history.
- Liberal trial attorney Dana Wachs attacked Governor Walker’s plan to provide a tax refund to hard-working Wisconsin families earlier this year.
