Republican Gov Candidates’ Worst Lies on Elections, Democracy
MADISON, Wis. – In Wisconsin, Republicans running for governor have proven that they would rather pander to the ultra-MAGA base than protect democracy and the right to vote.
Whether it is election integrity or January 6, all four have staked out extreme views in order to allow politicians to control the outcomes of elections.
Tim Michels: Said that “President Trump probably would be president right now if we had election integrity” and that January 6 was merely people experiencing “frustration over the election results.”
Kevin Nicholson: Has continually cast doubt on the legitimacy of the 2020 election and voiced his desire to dismantle the WEC in order to put partisan politicians in charge of election administration.
Governor Evers wants to protect Wisconsinites’ right to vote. The ability of every eligible voter to participate in our elections isn’t a partisan issue, it’s a fundamental right that must be protected.
“Rather than standing up for democracy and the rule of law, Republicans running for governor refuse to accept reality,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Hannah Menchhoff. “Their extremism only works to undermine our elections, democracy, and to lie to Wisconsin voters.”
