While Michels Dodges Press, Questions Remain Unanswered

MADISON, Wis. — Tim Michels is continuing to dodge voters and the press for an eighth straight day. No, an invite-only event exclusively with party leaders and members does not count, especially when the gubernatorial candidate refuses to be interviewed.

Michels instead leaves serious questions unanswered.

Since beginning his campaign, Michels has: said the 1849 ban on abortion that doesn’t include exceptions for rape or incest is “an exact mirror” of his position; confirmed that he supports restricting the rights of LGBTQ+ Wisconsinitesopposed a bipartisan package of gun reforms that included background checks for people under the age of 21 purchasing guns and a provision making it harder for domestic abusers to get guns; called continuing to increase education funding the “definition of insanity”; and refused to answer whether he would certify the 2024 election.

“It seems that Tim Michels isn’t coming out of hiding any time soon — still dodging questions about his radical record,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Hannah Menchhoff. “He may be talking to the ultra-MAGA base at the Republican Party, but he is clearly ignoring Wisconsinites. We are all tired of this game of Where’s Waldo? — Wisconsinites have questions that need to be answered.”
