leah-vukmirTwo-day tour includes stops in Milwaukee, Green Bay, Eau Claire, Wausau, and Madison.


MADISON - The Democratic Party of Wisconsin announced Wednesday the “Leah Vukmir Isn’t For Us” Tour -- a two-day, statewide tour highlighting Republican U.S. Senate nominee Leah Vukmir’s health care record.

The “Leah Vukmir Isn’t For Us” Tour -- which will include press events in Madison, Milwaukee, Eau Claire, Wausau, and Green Bay -- will feature Wisconsin nurses and health care professionals who are holding press events across the state to highlight Leah Vukmir’s health care agenda that includes:

  • gutting protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions;

  • letting insurance companies charge seniors more; and,

  • pursuing deep cuts to Medicare and Medicaid, which covers three in five Wisconsin nursing homes residents.

As a national leader of ALEC, a shadowy corporate special interest group, Leah Vukmir has taken her cues from special interests, not Wisconsin families, including by limiting health care coverage and making it harder to hold neglectful nursing homes accountable.

“Leah Vukmir Isn’t For Us” Tour Schedule:

Thursday, August 16 at 10:00 AM — Madison-area medical professionals will hold a press conference on Leah Vukmir’s health care record and agenda on the Capitol Square, at the corner of Main St., S. Pinckney St., and King St.

Thursday, August 16 at 2:00 PM — Milwaukee-area medical professionals will hold a press conference on Leah Vukmir’s health care record at the Milwaukee County Democratic Party office, located at 2999 S. Delaware Avenue in Milwaukee.

Friday, August 17 at 9:30 AM — Eau Claire-area medical professionals will hold a press conference on Leah Vukmir’s health care record at the Eau Claire County Democratic Party office, located at 440 Broadway St. in Eau Claire.

Friday, August 17 at 1:00 PM — Wausau-area medical professionals will hold a press conference on Leah Vukmir’s health care record at the Marathon County Democratic Party office, located at W 54403, 833 S 3rd Ave. in Wausau.

Friday, August 17 at 4:00 PM — Green Bay-area medical professionals will hold a press conference on Leah Vukmir’s health care record at the Brown County Democratic Party office, located at 118 S Chestnut Ave in Green Bay.

Walker Refuses To Stand Up For Harley-Davidson, Again PDF Print E-mail

scott-walker-harleyMILWAUKEE - Patrick Marley of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Walker attempted to show support for both Trump and the motorcycle company, but did not say whether he opposed a boycott. Walker aides refused to answer that question. Excerpts are below.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Scott Walker Caught Between Donald Trump and Harley-Davidson

EXCERPTS:

"GOP Gov. Scott Walker also assiduously avoided saying whether he supported a Harley boycott.

The issue was thrust upon the candidates — all strong backers of Trump — after Trump posted a Sunday message on Twitter saying a boycott of the Milwaukee-based company would be "great."

The issue came up at a bad time for Wisconsin Republicans — just before a primary that will determine who will face Baldwin and which of eight Democrats will take on Walker.

In a statement, Walker attempted to show support for both Trump and the motorcycle company, but did not say whether he opposed a boycott. Walker aides refused to answer that question.

[...]

That puts Wisconsin Republicans in a tough spot. They don't want to alienate a president who is popular in their party and who is quick to excoriate critics.

But they also don't want to attack a company that is woven into the fabric of the state's identity and celebrating its 115th anniversary."
