scott_fitzgeraldMILWAUKEE - Senator Larson had the following to say Wednesday morning regarding the lame duck session.

“This morning, fresh of an election defeat, the Republican-controlled legislature voted to subvert the will of the people. The effects of this vote will be felt for years to come.

chris-larson“Never before in Wisconsin’s 170 year history has an extraordinary session been used in such a cold, calculated way in order to usurp the power of duly elected constitutional officers. It is particularly disturbing that legislative Republicans would chose to poison the well of bipartisanship before duly elected officials are allowed to take office.

“What the Republicans have done is terribly short-sighted and will leave a permanent stain on their and our state’s legacy. It is unfortunate, that by refusing to recognize the voice of the people, they have broken Wisconsin Government. It will be all of our neighbors who suffer for years to come.

“Wisconsinites went to the polls in record midterm numbers and voted for change on November 6th. They responded to the people by essentially appointing the losing side as Attorney General. Now unelected, unaccountable private lawyers can potentially usurp any federal case from the duly elected Attorney General.

“We have a rich American history of peaceful transfer of power for the good of the people. This morning, Republicans instead decided to burn the house down on their way out the door.”

tony-eversThank you for all of your hard work and wish your family the very best Thanksgiving.


MADISON - I am reaching out to wish you and your entire family a great Thanksgiving and share just how thankful I am for the support Wisconsin Democrats gave my campaign.

With your help, we delivered a big win for Wisconsin, and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

For the past 14 months, so many of you have invited me into your homes and businesses, knocked doors, and made phone calls.

You talked to your friends, family members, and neighbors to get them out to vote for me, Mandela, Tammy, Josh, Sarah and the rest of our Democratic slate.

As the campaign progressed, I realized more and more that this election was always more important than us, or any political party.

It was about people getting directly involved and fighting for a Wisconsin that works for all. I want to thank Wisconsin Democrats like you that helped us make our plan a reality.

Our work together to implement the idea that “what’s best for kids is what’s best for our state” is just beginning, but it’s also important to reflect on how far we have come.

Kathy and I want to thank you for all of your hard work and wish your family the very best Thanksgiving.

Thank you for all that you do,

Tony
