Four of Wisconsin’s GOP House members dinged President Biden and Dems on election laws, foreign policy, fuel prices and immigration.

And they sought to tie Dem Gov. Tony Evers to the president in the process.

In a panel discussion before the GOP state convention, U.S. Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-Minocqua, argued there was no real difference between Biden and Evers. He told party activists Evers is following Biden’s footsteps on crime.

”They will not take on the crime wave here across America,” Tiffany said. “Tony Evers equals Joe Biden here in America. They both need to be fired, Tony Evers first here in November.”

Others on the panel touched on law enforcement. U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Allouez, decided what he said was the “woke ideology” that “all cops are racist.” He said Republicans believe the opposite.

“Not withstanding any policy disagreements that we have, we’re united on the idea that we love America,” Gallagher said. “This the greatest country in the history of the world.”

U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman, R-Glenbeulah, called Dems the “divisive party” and said “I’m tired of all this racism stuff all the time.” He urged activists to tell their neighbors to vote Republican to combat inflation and the other problems he said Biden has caused.

And U.S. Rep. Bryan Steil, R-Janesville, warned Dems are trying to gut state-level protections such as voter ID laws by passing federal legislation.

“We’ve got to keep our foot on the gas pedal and prevent Democrats from nationalizing our elections,”

U.S. Rep. Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, who had a personal commitment this weekend, didn’t participate in the panel.
