Vos is rebuffing Trump’s latest call to decertify the 2020 election results, drawing a rebuke from the former president that the Rochester Republican is “a long time professional RINO.”
Trump pressured Vos over the weekend to take action after the state Supreme Court’s ruling that drop boxes are illegal.
In a statement yesterday, Vos said he agreed with Trump that the ruling “was a courageous decision.”
“But, as I’ve also said, as have so many other legal scholars, there is no way to reclaim electors and overturn the election,” Vos said. “My plan is to focus on electing a Republican Governor so Governor Evers cannot again veto the 22 election reform bills we’ve passed. The Assembly will take these bills up again first thing next legislative session.”
In a post on Truth Social, Trump charged Vos was “always looking to guard his flank” and will do “nothing about the amazing Wisconsin Supreme Court decision.”
“What a waste of a brilliant and courageous decision by Wisconsin’s Highest Court,” Trump wrote. “The Democrats would like to sincerely thank Robin, and all his fellow RINOs, for letting them get away with ‘murder.’ A Rigged & Stolen Election!”
Trump has pressured Vos on the 2020 elections before. Just before the GOP state convention last year, Trump accused Vos and GOP Senate leaders Devin LeMahieu and Chris Kapenga of “working hard to cover up the election corruption” in Wisconsin. In April, he issued a veiled threat to Vos if former Justice Michael Gableman’s contract to review the 2020 election wasn’t extended.
Meanwhile, state Rep. Tim Ramthun has begun circulating his resolution calling for the decertification of Wisconsin’s 2020 presidential election results. The Campbellsport Republican and GOP guv candidate announced the resolution during a Capitol news conference earlier this week. In the email to colleagues accompanying the resolution, he indicated plans for a follow-up news conference July 25 to detail “what level of support was received for this necessary action.”
