mitch-mcconnellWASHINGTON, D.C. - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his allies are embracing a fight with the media and Twitter that has struck a nerve among Republicans.

Taking fierce criticism over election security, a series of campaign imbroglios and the GOP leader’s response to two mass shootings, the normally tightlipped McConnell and his team have repeatedly punched back at what they view as unfair coverage and leaned into a fight with the social media giant.

mitch-mcconnellWASHINGTON, D.C. - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) brushed off a question about an NBC News report that his great-great-grandfathers owned slaves, saying it puts him in the same camp as former President Barack Obama.

McConnell appeared to smile as a reporter asked him during a weekly press conference if he knew that his family once owned slaves, and if it changed his position on reparations for African Americans.

supremecourt-justicesMADISON - The following is a statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler on the decision by the conservative majority of Wisconsin’s Supreme Court to uphold laws passed by the Republican legislature in December to undercut the incoming Democratic administration:

ben-wikler“Republicans hijacked Wisconsin’s Supreme Court, rigged the legislature, and then, the moment Democrats won control of the executive branch, used the other two branches to kneecap the Governor and Attorney General. Today’s ruling is a continuation of the GOP’s decade-long crusade to undermine the voice of the people and establish minority rule.

“This hyper-partisan ruling is a reminder that in 2020 and the years to come, Democrats will be fighting for democracy itself.

donald-trumpState Democrats call out Trump's broken promises as the President officially kicks off re-election bid in Florida Tuesday.


MADISON - Ahead of President Trump’s re-election kick off rally in Orlando, Florida, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin held a press call Monday to make the case that Wisconsin voters will hold Trump accountable in 2020 for his failures and broken promises on health care and the economy.

The following are excerpts from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler’s remarks:

ben-wikler-dpw“When he was running for president, Trump promised health care for everybody…But once he was in, his number one legislative priority was to slash health care and rip up Medicaid in order to hand a massive tax break to special interests and the wealthy.”

“President Trump told Wisconsinites in 2016 that he would ‘substantially’ lower their taxes. In reality, Trump’s tax bill will actually increase taxes for lower and middle-income Wisconsinites by 2027… The rich got richer, and Trump left the middle class out in the cold.”

“Despite Trump’s repeated promises to bring jobs back to Wisconsin, Trump’s tax bill has failed to stop layoffs. It’s even encouraged outsourcing. It’s done the opposite of what Trump promised—but it’s done exactly what Trump wanted, which is to benefit people like himself at the expense of everyone else.”

“Trump ran on big promises in 2016. When he launches his campaign tomorrow, he’ll have to answer for why he’s broken them…

“This time around, when the president makes promises, Wisconsin voters will know the Trump’s word is worthless—and they’ll hold him accountable for what he’s done to our state.”

wisdemsMADISON - President Donald Trump will officially kick off his re-election campaign Tuesday in Orlando, Florida where he will undoubtedly lie about his long record of broken promises. In Wisconsin, Trump’s attempts to “make America great” have raised taxes on the working class while enriching himself and wealthy corporations, fueled a crisis in Wisconsin’s dairy industry, and jeopardized health care access for millions of Wisconsinites.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler will offer a response to Trump’s announcement on a press call TOMORROW and make the case that Wisconsin voters will reject a second term for President Trump.
