Rebecca Kleefisch’s Recently Announced Leadership Team Displays Serious Failure of Judgement

he alarming behavior by Rebecca Kleefisch is starting to pile up. Instead of sharing a plan to address the pandemic, she divides, distracts, and blames others. She has sprinted to the hard right, adopting unpopular, damaging positions, including advocating for a 6 week abortion ban, similar to the law recently enacted in Texas. Now, she continues to show who she is by the company she keeps. We deserve leaders who advocate for family-supporting policies, not champions of the right-wing disinformation brigade.

Principle or Party Bosses is the Choice for Republican State Legislators

MADISON, Wis. — Republican state legislators face a choice on Tuesday as their right-wing party bosses ask them to vote for a proposal aimed at preserving Wisconsin’s rigged legislative district lines. In 2011, Wisconsin Republicans enacted one of the most gerrymandered state legislative district plans in the nation, with the goal of cementing their power and […]

Governor Evers Protects Freedom to Vote in Wisconsin With Vetoes

Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature seem to have made it their mission to pick which voters get the freedom to participate in our elections, rather than allowing us to pick our leaders. Wisconsinites across the state have spoken up for the freedom to vote, and Governor Evers has heard us. Thank you, Governor Evers, for standing up for our freedom to vote.
