DPW Statement on Governor Evers’ Debate Victory

MADISON, Wis. — Following tonight’s gubernatorial debate, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement:

“Tonight’s debate provided a stark contrast between Governor Evers’ record of strong, common-sense leadership; and the divisive, radical agenda offered by Tim Michels. Tim Michels’ out-of-touch agenda would criminalize abortion, make Wisconsinites less safe, and defund public education. Meanwhile, Governor Evers is focused on doing the right thing for Wisconsin by supporting Wisconsin small businesses and family farms, investing in public education, and defending our democracy from right-wing attacks. Governor Evers has made tremendous progress for Wisconsin during his first term, but his work to keep moving Wisconsin forward isn’t finished. The choice is clear: Governor Evers is the only candidate for governor who will fight to restore reproductive freedom in Wisconsin, protect the right to vote, and do the right thing for our state.”
