mike-gallagher-gtyMADISON, Wis. — Last week, as Mitch McConnell and his DC allies attempt to recruit Mike Gallagher, Republicans in Wisconsin are speaking out about their “disgust” with Gallagher.

Friday, the Chair of the Oconto County Republican Party, which is in Gallagher’s congressional district, called into a conservative Green Bay radio show to discuss how Gallagher has “stabbed [Republicans] in the back.”


Ken Sikora, Chair of the Oconto County GOP on Mike Gallagher:

  • "I’m calling about the Gallagher issue. Obviously, we’re in District 8 so he’s our Representative. I can't tell you the amount of calls we’ve received and text messages  to our local GOP, people just absolutely disgusted."
  • "People are angry. They feel let down. They put his signs out, they support him, they vote for him, and then at no time has he ever called to ask what anyone of us in his district really want him to do."
  • "And we find out he voted [for the debt ceiling] bill. We have a great senator in Ron Johnson who voted no, Tom Tiffany up here voted no... it's really frustrating."
  • "The biggest frustration is that so many of his constituents here in this county and I'm sure other counties are experiencing the same thing are just thoroughly disgusted. We feel like we represent you, we go out there and we wave that flag for you, and then you go and do the opposite of what we want."
  • "People are just tired of voting for people that are gonna go out and do the total opposite.... This is why we're losing elections in Wisconsin, that is a conservative state. The conservatives up north here, throughout the entire state, we just feel let down, like we've been stabbed in the back."
  • "It's getting harder and harder to go pull that lever for people that continue to do things we don't want them to do."
