Dems call GOP convention wildly out of touch

State Dem spokeswoman Courtney Beyer charged Saturday the state GOP’s convention shows it is more “out-of-touch with the people of Wisconsin than we thought possible.”

As evidence, she cited the refusal by legislative Republicans to embrace Gov. Tony Evers’ call to accept federal money to expand the Medicaid program and the party’s decision to invite conservative activist Candace Owens to speak.

“It is clear that Wisconsin Republicans have abandoned any sense of obligation to the people of Wisconsin,” Beyer said. “Instead, they are scorching the earth around them while Wisconsin families struggle with rising health care costs, stagnant wages and an uncertain economy.”
