The Significance of the Steve Doyle Victory

MADISON-Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate following the victory in the 94th Assembly District.

"Steve Doyle's victory tonight was a direct and stunning rejection of the anti-family, anti-Wisconsin policies of Scott Walker and Dan Kapanke. The seat was formerly held by a top Walker ally and now, the voters of the Coulee Region have made clear that the efforts by Kapanke and Walker to kill private-sector jobs, strip working families of their rights, damage our state's institutions and give corporations free reign. More change is coming soon but this victory is a clear pivot point for the citizens of Wisconsin as they throw off the yoke of the misguided and dangerous Kapanke-Walker agenda."
