tim-burnsCongratulates Judge Rebecca Dallet and Michael Screnock on the campaigns they have across the state. Hopes supporters will never stop fighting for working people and Wisconsin families.


MADISON - Following election returns Michael Screnock and Rebecca Dallet have advanced to the April General Election for the State Supreme Court. They will face off on the April 3rd ballot.

In response Tim Burns released the following statement:

I want to take a moment to congratulate Judge Rebecca Dallet and Michael Screnock on the campaigns they have across the state. My campaign and I have worked incredibly hard and fought passionately for what we believed in, but unfortunately, we came up short.

I hope my supporters will never stop fighting for working people until we restore power back to Wisconsin families from the hands of a privileged few. There’s so much work to do in 2018, and I know that Working Families Party, Citizen Action of Wisconsin, AFT local 212, AFSCME, the TAA and Our Wisconsin Revolution will be leading the charge to ensure a Wisconsin that works for everyone, not just the wealthy and well-connected.

In the coming days, I will be returning to private life, but I will continue to be a fierce partner with my supporters, their issues and the candidates they support.

 
Kevin Nicholson Declined to Register as a Republican in 2010 PDF Print E-mail

kevin-nicholson-cspanNicholson has repeatedly contended that he's been an active Republican since 2007. He says he left the Democratic Party as early as 2000, despite working to elect Democrats in 2002. Dems say his "dishonesty is disqualifying".


MADISON - The Wisconsin State Journal yesterday reported that Kevin Nicholson declined to register to vote as a Republican as late as 2010, when he moved to Massachusetts, despite Nicholson repeatedly claiming that he's been an active Republican since 2007.

This is just the latest glaring contradiction in Kevin Nicholson's year-long-and-counting campaign to perniciously mislead Wisconsinites about his personal views and political history:

  • It was UNTRUE when Nicholson claimed he left the 2000 Democratic National Convention convinced he was not a Democrat, because two years laterNicholson worked to elect Democrats in Minnesota -- and five years after that, he registered to vote as a Democrat in North Carolina.
  • It was UNTRUE when Nicholson said his military service led him to leave the Democratic Party, because it's a matter of public record that he voted in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary in North Carolina.
  • And the time Nicholson claimed to have voted "no preference" in 2008's Democratic presidential primary? There's NO EVIDENCE of that, either. Records prove otherwise, and PolitiFact has called out Nicholson's dishonesty.

"Wisconsinites expect transparency," said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. "Kevin Nicholson's pathological dishonesty is disqualifying, and no amount of spending from his out of out-of state, billionaire megadonor or corporate special interests can change that."

leah-vukmirWisconsin’s state treasurer since 2015 endorses Leah Vukmir as Republican candidate for U.S. Senate.


MADISON - I have dedicated my entire tenure as state treasurer to cutting government waste. I have advocated for eliminating my own job and identifying expensive, useless bureaucratic red tape. Leah Vukmir understands those exact issues, working tirelessly to address them, and has been one of my strongest allies in removing the unnecessary position of state treasurer.

And because we share the same values to create a limited, smaller government, I choose Leah Vukmir for U.S. Senate.

The challenges facing our state and our nation must be addressed head on, and I know of no better fighter than Leah. Leah is battle tested. She has taken on the difficult issues and successfully implemented conservative policies, improving the lives of Wisconsinites.

matt-adamczykSmall changes make big differences. In my role as state treasurer, I have worked hard to look for all the efficiencies, even seemingly minor ones. In our world of flashy politics, it is easy to overlook the small things, but Leah has been an unwavering ally in our fight for fiscal reform. She understands that the basics form the foundation of conservative leadership.

In politics, there is a saying: It is far easier to prevent something from happening than it is to remove something after it has happened. Leah has been a vigilant partner in preventing bad things from starting. She has always believed that stopping bad legislation is just as important, if not more important, than implementing good legislation. We have benefited from Leah’s steadfast conservativism for near two decades. Wisconsin, and the rest of America, desperately needs someone with that same attitude in Washington.

Though I’m sad to lose an ally who fights for fiscal conservatism in Madison, I choose Leah Vukmir to be our next U.S. Senator. We would all benefit from Leah’s experience and unwavering dedication to the taxpayers of the Badger State.

Matt Adamczyk has been Wisconsin’s state treasurer since 2015.
