donald-trumpGOP nominee continues dangerous rhetoric and reckless behavior.

LA CROSSE, WI – Despite Donald Trump’s ongoing erratic behavior and offensive remarks, Legislative Republicans are once again campaigning alongside him in Wisconsin. The GOP candidate is holding a string of high-dollar fundraisers as new polling from the Marquette University Law School shows Trump with a 27% favorable rating in Wisconsin.

donald-trump“While Republican leaders continue to endorse Trump’s erratic behavior, Wisconsin families have seen enough,” said Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse). “From suggesting we should abandon our allies to advocating the use of torture, Trump’s policies would make us less safe. He lacks the temperament, experience and moral judgment to keep us safe.”

“Hillary Clinton is uniquely qualified and prepared to assume the role of commander in chief on day one,” said Shilling. “She has serious plans to make our country more secure, and a record of leadership to back it up. The choice is clear. It’s not a choice between a Democrat and a Republican, but between a responsible leader who will keep us safe, and a volatile man who threatens our security.”

donald-trump-littleRepublican leaders refuse to condemn Trump’s hateful rhetoric.

MADISON, WI – As Legislative Republicans once again welcome Donald Trump to Wisconsin, families continue to wait for leaders to speak out against his hateful rhetoric. While prominent national figures have been forced to denounce many of Donald Trump’s outlandish statements, Wisconsin Republicans have been noticeably silent as they continue to defend Trump’s erratic behavior.

“How far does Donald Trump have to go in order for Senate Republicans to disavow his dangerous and hateful rhetoric?” asked Matt Ullsvik, SSDC Executive Director. “Rather than blindly backing their party’s nominee, Senate Republicans should stand up to his bullying and denounce his candidacy.”

“Wisconsin families value hard work and honesty,” added Ullsvik. “Donald Trump doesn’t know the meaning of either. After insulting the parents of a fallen marine captain, demeaning women and spouting racist rhetoric, it’s time for Republicans to put politics aside and call out Donald Trump for his shameful actions.”

dennis-huntCHIPPEWA FALLS, WI - Retired Air Force Major Dennis Hunt is a Chippewa Falls native running for the 67th Assembly District, a competitive open seat. He has a deep love and commitment to state and country, as evidenced by his extensive military service, which led him to work in the Pentagon before, during and after the September 11th attacks.

Dennis and his wife Annette are very active in their local community. The couple are co-owners of Chippewa Valley Financial Services, and Annette serves on the Chippewa County Board. Dennis believes in being a good steward of our taxpayer dollars to prioritize public education, improve job growth, increase wages, and reduce unemployment.

Dennis Hunt is running for the 67th Assembly District because he understands the importance of protecting his community from the dangerous consequences of the extreme Republican agenda.

Now, with the primary behind him, Dennis is ready to get down to business and do what it takes to finish strong in November. However, to remain competitive with his Republican opponent, he will need help from grassroots supporters like you in his district and across the state.
