leah-vukmirDemocrats comment on announcement by Tea Party, billionaire-backed, Koch brothers disciple candidate.


MADISON - Thursday, a Tea Party, billionaire-backed, Koch brothers disciple announced her candidacy for U.S. Senate. State Senator Leah Vukmir has a long history in Madison of putting her extreme, Tea Party agenda ahead of the needs of Wisconsin families. Leah joins former College Democrats of America Chair Kevin Nicholson in the Republican primary.

martha-laningDemocratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning commented, “For over a decade, Leah Vukmir has been in Madison putting her extreme agenda ahead of the needs of Wisconsin families. Billionaires back her because she’s served as a national leader of a billionaires special interest group, introducing their legislation in Wisconsin and hurting Wisconsin families. She prioritizes tax breaks for billionaires and corporations over working people. She cuts education and healthcare to pay for massive tax breaks for the super wealthy. And what's worse, Leah Vukmir's extreme policies haven't done anything to address rising costs for Wisconsin families.”

Watch "The Wisconsin Way."

Statement

“I first got into politics because of my kids," Leah said. "I challenged the school system so my children could have the education they deserved, and that’s why I’m running today. If you want to change things, you need to stand up and lead.

“As a nurse, it is in my nature to take action when things need to get done. I stood with Gov. Walker and real conservatives to enact successful reforms that keep jobs here in Wisconsin, keep more of your hard earned money in your pocket, and make our communities better places to raise a family.

“And, in the face of liberal intimidation tactics, I’ve kept up that fight to make our state a better, safer, and more prosperous place for my children and yours.

“The people I’ve spoken to from across our state believe Tammy Baldwin would rather stand with liberal Democrats and Washington elites than listen to what is important to hard-working Wisconsinites.

“The Senate desperately needs someone who will never back down — a proven, consistent conservative who understands the type of determination it takes to finish the job. I intend to bring the Wisconsin way of working hard and never giving up straight to Washington.”

david-clarkeMADISON - As Milwaukee County begins to recover from over a decade of having a fraud for Sheriff, it was reported today that David Clarke's loyalty to President Trump has finally paid off with an insider job at a shady pro-Trump super PAC.

martha-laning"From decorating his uniform with fake military badges to lavishing in the Tea Party speaking circuit while inmates died in his jail, David Clarke's entire taxpayer-funded political career was only made possible by defrauding the very people he failed to serve," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning. "Milwaukee County taxpayers will finally be relieved of footing the bill for David Clarke's real job: a mouthpiece for Donald Trump."
