WisGOP Statement in Response to the Lack of Information Released on the Death of Bernell Trammell

[Madison, WI] – In response to the lack of information released on the death of Bernell Trammell, the Republican Party of Wisconsin issued the following statement from Chairman Andrew Hitt:

“It has now been four days since the death of Bernell Trammell and the public still does not have any details surrounding the circumstances of Mr. Trammell’s death. With the general election 99 days away and a primary in two weeks, it is imperative that the community knows if Mr. Trammell’s murder was politically motivated. Wisconsin voters, and especially campaign volunteers, deserve to know if they are safe while exercising their First Amendment rights. Federal, state, and local officials need to do everything in their power to ensure local law enforcement has the support and resources they need to get answers for Bernell Trammell’s family, friends and neighbors. No matter if Trammell’s senseless murder was politically motivated or not, officials in Milwaukee, Gov. Tony Evers, Attorney General Kaul and Mayor Tom Barrett need to do everything they can to ensure the personal safety of their citizens.”
