Wisconsin Candidate Says, “Republicans Will Never Lose Another Election After I’m Elected Governor”

HeadlineNov 03, 2022

In Wisconsin, Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels threatened permanent GOP rule if he wins his election. 

Tim Michels: “Republicans will never lose another election in Wisconsin after I’m elected governor.”

Michels made the remark during a campaign rally Monday, raising fears he would further crack down on voting rights in the swing state, which has been heavily gerrymandered to favor Republicans and is already governed by a Republican legislature. Conservative Wisconsin lawmakers have introduced hundreds of bills this year restricting voting rights. Incumbent Democratic Governor Tony Evers tweeted in response, “Tim Michels is a danger to our democracy. When you head to the polls on Election Day, remember that we’re fighting to protect our democracy, voting rights, and free, fair, and secure elections.”
