Mike PenceMADISON - After weeks of speculation and rumors Donald Trump finally announced his choice for Vice President and it's the most extreme choice in a generation, Governor of Indiana .

Trump's announcement confirms that the Republican Party's standard bearer is doubling down on his discriminatory politics and failed economic policies that deepen the divide between millionaires and working Americans.

donald-trumpMuch like Donald Trump, Gov. Mike Pence is a nightmare for working Wisconsinites. Pence opposes raising the minimum wage, signed legislation allowing skilled workers in Indiana to earn less, and opposed President Obama's auto industry rescue which saved thousands of jobs across Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.

"Donald Trump's decision to bring Governor Pence onto his ticket signals that yet again, he isn't for working Wisconsinites," said Senator Jennifer Shilling on Saturday. "We need someone like Sec. Hillary Clinton in the White House who understands the urgent need to improve the lives of everyday Americans by raising wage and investing in workers."

In Congress and as governor, Pence repeatedly intervened in women's health, threatening women's privacy and limiting their choice. In 2011, Pence co-sponsored legislation allowing hospitals to refuse to perform an abortion on a woman even if she needed one to live. That same year Pence personally led the fight to defund Planned Parenthood and even threatened to shutdown the government.

"Women in Wisconsin have experienced first-hand the devastation of the extreme Republican agenda of cutting funding to Planned Parenthood for life saving health care like cervical and breast cancer screenings and access to birth control," said Rep. Chris Taylor. "It is telling that Donald Trump, who routinely offends women across the nation with his sexist comments, picks Mike Pence as his running mate, who has lead the charge in passing laws that seriously endanger women's health and lives. A Trump/Pence ticket is a disaster for women in our country."

Voters in Wisconsin and across the nation deserve better than the divisive policies and 'me-first' economic proposals a Trump and Pence Republican ticket will bring.

"After today's announcement, the contrast between Sec. Hillary Clinton and her opponent couldn't be any more stark," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning. "Her vision for our nation and our party is one where unity prevails over division and all Americans have an opportunity to be successful."
