[Madison, WI] – In case you missed it, following Chairman Brian Schimming’s election on December 10, new reports from RedState and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel outline his plans to energize the party and help Republicans win at all levels of the ballot in 2023, 2024, and beyond. According to RedState, “every Republican Party chair in the country should follow the new Wisconsin GOP head’s lead.”

Every Republican Party Chair in the Country Should Follow the New Wisconsin GOP Head’s Lead
December 29, 2022
With the red trickle behind us and the 2024 general election less than two years away, Republican voters will be faced with three options, like it, or not. The option a majority of GOP voters choose will be pivotal in both congressional elections and the election of the next president of the United States, as well.
And here’s an extra tip, free of charge: If you hate the explosion of early voting — you shouldn’t — and the growing number of mail-in ballots, you must win a majority of seats in a majority of state legislatures before you can change anything about it. Otherwise, you remain stuck with option #2.
As reported by Just the News, new Wisconsin Republican Party Chairman Brian Schimming has said in a number of interviews over the past week that he wants to focus on early voting and raising money ahead of the spring ’23 election.
Schimming, unanimously elected as Republican Party Chairman on December 10, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he’s focused on building Republican infrastructure and looking ahead to the April election.
“I don’t do change just for change’s sake. I don’t go to knock over furniture just for the heck of it. But I’m sending the signal not only internally but externally that if it works we enhance it. If it doesn’t work, it goes.”
In another interview, Schimming made a similar pledge about his motto as GOP chairman:
“I’m not here to milk sacred cows. And, if it’s working, we enhance it. If it’s not working, it goes out to the curb.”
In reference to doing a better job of getting early votes, Schimming said:
“We can’t keep walking into Election Day 100,000-200,000 votes down and expect we’re going to make it up in 13 hours between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.”
Exactly. As Albert Einstein wisely admonished, doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. I might add that if you continue to play stupid games when new games work better, you continue to win stupid prizes.
As I reported in a Christmas Day article, Republican political strategist Karl Rove argued in a Wall Street Journal column that it’s time for a generational leadership change in both parties. Brian Schimming is a perfect example of what new leadership — and new ideas — should look like in the Republican Party.
