Decisions On Wisconsin Election Integrity Lawsuits Revealed As Election Day Nears
Wisconsin Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels drew attention earlier this week when he told a group of supporters at a campaign stop that "Republicans will never lose another election in Wisconsin after I'm elected governor."
American Bridge 21st Century, a left-leaning political action committee, released an audio clip of Michels making that statement, according to Business Insider.
Michels, who is endorsed by former President Donald Trump, is running against incumbent Democratic Gov. Tony Evers.
On Twitter, Evers responded to the audio clip by saying, "Tim Michels is a danger to our democracy."
Evers spokesperson Sam Roecker released a statement claiming that "Tim Michels has made it clear he will do anything in his power to make it harder for Wisconsinites to vote and could even overturn the fair results of our elections if he doesn't like the outcome."
The Michels campaign said that the comment had nothing to do with election integrity and that Michels would generate support for Republican candidates by incorporating "lower taxes, better schools, uniform election laws, and safer communities."
"While revving up supporters to get out and vote, Tim was referring to winning and leading and then being rewarded by voters for doing a good job," Michels spokesperson Brian Fraley said in a statement.
"Any attempt to make more out of that quip shows just how pathetic and desperate Tony Evers and his supporters are getting as we approach election day. They want to talk about anything other than his four years of failure."
