Alex Lasry Bashes SCOTUS For Overturning Roe v. Wade

Alex Lasry released a statement following the Supreme Court Opinion to Overturn Roe V. Wade:

“Today’s news of the Supreme Court overturning Roe V. Wade is a direct assault on women’s rights. Sadly, today will be remembered as one of the darkest days in the history of the Court, as women will die as a result of this destructive decision by these Trumpian Justices.

“I’m furious and incredibly disappointed, not only for my wife and daughter but for all women in Wisconsin and across the country. Every woman deserves the right to control their own reproductive freedom—an essential element of a woman’s right to self-determination.

“The Republican Party has embraced extremism and gone too far. We must eliminate the filibuster and undo this attack on the fundamental and essential freedoms of women. This restriction on abortion care will harm women across the country, especially low-income and women of color. This is setting an incredibly deadly precedent across our nation.

“I’ll fight with everything I have to make sure access to safe and legal abortion is available in Wisconsin and nationwide. Alongside the incredible reproductive health care workers and reproductive justice fighters who work in Wisconsin, we will start that process by unseating Ron Johnson this November.”

@AlexLasryWI Will Eleanor grow up in Ron Johnson’s WI, where communities are pitted against each other?

Or will she grow up in the WI we believe in? The WI we love, & that we fear is slipping away?

I’m asking for your vote, because together—we won’t just fight for our values—we’ll deliver.

Alex Lasry calls Ron Johnson a “Seditious Traitor” following the uncovering of Johnson’s attempt to change the outcome of the 2020 election.

Milwaukee — Alex Lasry released the following statement today following the uncovering of Ron Johnson’s attempted coup to overthrow the government and change the outcome of the 2020 election:

“Ron Johnson is a seditious traitor and a danger to our democracy. Trump and his MAGA allies planned, promoted, and paid for a radical plot to overturn an election they lost, and Ron Johnson attempted to deliver it for President Trump on a silver platter.

“The idea that a single American can attempt to overthrow the outcome of a fair and free election is perhaps the most egregious idea imaginable to the foundation of our Democracy.

“Ron Johnson and anyone else who played a part in this traitorous act should be held accountable to the fullest extent possible. If we continue to allow him to answer to no one, the attacks on our democracy and our communities will continue to grow.

“The only way we get rid of Ron Johnson is by voting him out of office, which is exactly what I intend to do this November.”

On Monday, Lasry talks with MSNBC Reporter Andrea Mitchell about his plan to defeat Ron Johnson this November.

Milwaukee – Alex Lasry appeared on MSNBC to highlight his significant rise in the polls over the past several months and to discuss about why he’s the best choice to take on Ron Johnson in November.

Since last fall, Alex Lasry has climbed over twenty points in the polls, and the most recent data has also shown that a majority of Democratic Primary voters believe he’s the best candidate to beat Ron Johnson in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race this year. Lasry credits his quick rise to his economic messaging.

The primary is now tied because “voters see our economic message and are looking for a change,” said Alex Lasry. He also slammed Ron Johnson by stating “for the last

twelve years Ron Johnson has done nothing other than benefit himself and his friends.”

.@MitchellReports On inflation & WI Sen race, @AlexLasryWI: “Since day one we’ve been talking about how to put money back in people’s pockets. And this is one of the areas that we differ with Ron Johnson on greatly. Johnson passed a tax cut that just benefited himself and his friends.” #AMRstaff

[email protected] On state of the WI Dem Senate primary @AlexLasryWI: “I personally don’t think there’s a front-runner right now. As you can see from the polls everything is tight. But any Democrat in this race is going to be a hundred times better than Ron Johnson.” #AMRstaff
