Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir urged workers at a Menomonee Falls factory today to vote for Republicans, warning Dem wins would unravel conservative reforms in Wisconsin and Washington, D.C.
Vukmir, who’s a state senator from Brookfield, said the state has seen record low unemployment, state budget surpluses and reduced taxes under Republican control.
“All that we have accomplished here with our governor and our legislators with your help, is on the line,” Vukmir said. “Everything will be unraveled if we lose control of one house the other, or if we lose the governorship.”
She also praised national GDP growth of more than 4 percent and the GOP federal tax overhaul.
“All of that is on the line, too,” Vukmir said. “We need to send people to Washington who will continue that great trajectory of what we have done here in Wisconsin and what is happening in Washington.”
Vukmir was joined at Duwe Metal Products Inc. by first lady Tonette Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, state Sen. Alberta Darling, R-River Hills, and state Rep. Janel Brandtjen, R-Menomonee Falls, who were on their first stop of a tour of women-owned businesses.
Vukmir said her Dem opponent, U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, “stands on the side of big government.”
On healthcare, Vukmir said she will protect coverage for those with pre-existing conditions and slammed Baldwin for favoring “a full-fledged government-run health care plan that will throw 3.4 million of you off your private insurance.”
