sean-rachel-campos-duffyMADISON - On Monday night of the Republican National Convention, Rep. Sean Duffy took the stage to re-affirm his support for Donald Trump and talk about the importance of party unity. Duffy previously had very harsh words for the front-runner, and at this convention told audiences two very different stories:

Excerpt from Sean Duffy's speech from the RNC: '"We need to unify behind a new president who can strengthen and protect and restore our nation for the next generation."

What Sean Duffy said behind closed doors: "Some will say, I wish I had a different choice...I wish there was a different candidate!”

Despite Duffy's unclear stance on his party's nominee, the two share an obsession of being in the limelight and trying to relive the days of their TV stardom. Duffy has no interest in doing what is best for Wisconsin or the country, he is only interested in grabbing headlines and tv soundbites, with little concern for what he is actually saying.

The convention is far from the first time Duffy has been two-faced with different audiences.

Duffy previously said about Trump: "When you ask [Trump] questions about, ‘How do we make America safe again? How do I grow our economy? How do I bring jobs back home? How do I fix healthcare?' he doesn’t have any ideas."

But Duffy has also said: And I think a businessman who has created hundreds of thousands of jobs for Americans knows better how to restructure the tax code and restructure regulations to let business thrive.

"Like too many Republicans, Sean Duffy is putting party before country. Duffy's support for Donald Trump is dangerous for Wisconsin," Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Brandon Weathersby said on Friday. "No one really knows what he thinks because Sean Duffy tailors his comments to ensure peak pandering for each audience. But he should know he isn't on reality tv anymore - his words and actions have consequences for our state and country. The people of Wisconsin's 7th district deserve to know where Sean Duffy stands in his support of Donald Trump."

martha-laningMADISON - With the end of the Republican National Convention, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning released the following statement:

"The Republican National Convention showed exactly why we must elect Hillary Clinton to the White House and other Democrats up and down the ticket into office. If elected, Donald Trump would severely damage our economy, diminish our standing in the world, and make our communities less safe. He is divisive, dangerous, and lacks the judgment and temperament to be Commander in chief. When he says, 'Let’s make America great again,' that’s code for 'Let’s take America backward.' This is not about Democrats vs. Republicans, our values as Wisconsinites and Americans are at stake."

scott-walker-at-rncMADISON - The build up to Scott Walker's speech could not have been more overshadowed by his own undoing. 

Before the convention even began, Scott Walker couldn't be found by his fellow Wisconsinites because he who was too busy schmoozing the Iowa delegation trying to re-live his failed presidential bid and couldn't be bothered. This set the stage for what we already know: Scott Walker has no interest in representing and working with the people of Wisconsin, even those in his own party, and is so dead set on running for president again in 2020 he forgot he was at the convention to help unite his party, not build upon his own ambitions.

Things only got worse-- former Republican Governor Tommy Thompson openly questioned if Walker had any reason to run again in 2018, as his approval numbers have dropped to a measly 38%.

Finally, when Scott Walker got the moment he had been eagerly anticipating-- to be in the lime light again for a few minutes to praise Donald Trump--, his speech fell totally flat. While Walker may have forgotten his muddled support of the Donald, people in the room did not. Walker previously swore to support the nominee, then backtracked and wouldn't commit to Trump, and when he finally did, it was as tepid an endorsement as they come.
