Madison Wis. — As the Wisconsin Republican Party prepares for their state convention this weekend, it’s clear that the Wisconsin GOP has never been more out of touch with Wisconsinites. To recap:

Wisconsin Republicans are likely to hear from soon-to-be announced candidate for governor Rebecca Kleefisch, who is committed to dismantling the progress our state has made under Gov. Evers. Kleefisch was at the heart of some of the most disastrous policy decisions in Wisconsin’s history, including the failed Foxconn agreement and years of attacks on public schools that left students without the resources they needed to succeed.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement:

“Wisconsinites are tired of the toxicity of the Wisconsin Republican Party. From derailing federal funding for public education to seeding doubt in the integrity of our elections to trying to rip health care away from Wisconsinites, the Republican Party of Wisconsin continues to put their own political self-interests over the lives of working families in Wisconsin. Wisconsinites are tired of the political circus starring Senator Ron Johnson, Rebecca Kleefisch, and Robin Vos, and, come 2022, will hold them accountable at the polls. Until then, Wisconsin Democrats and Gov. Tony Evers will continue to be a voice for working families across the state, and continue to advocate for policies that better the lives of Wisconsinites.”
