WisGOP Statement on Gubernatorial Primary Results

[Madison, WI] – Following Tim Michels’ victory in the Republican primary for Governor, the Republican Party of Wisconsin released the following statement from Chairman Paul Farrow:

“The Republican Party of Wisconsin is excited to congratulate Tim Michels, whose experience as a business leader, builder, and veteran will serve him well in the Governor’s Office. We also thank Rebecca Kleefisch, Tim Ramthun, and Adam Fischer for bringing their passion for Wisconsin and their voices to the race. Unlike the Democrats, who didn’t trust their primary voters and pressured their candidates to fall in line, we are grateful that Republican voters were able to make their own informed choices thanks to our candidates’ willingness to step up to the plate and bring their unique perspectives to the table.

“The failed leadership of Tony Evers is evident as he worked to hike taxes, let Kenosha burn, put violent criminals back on the streets, kept schools closed, and rendered our state government dysfunctional. Wisconsin can’t afford four more years of his absent leadership, and we look forward to uniting the GOP coalition to elect Tim Michels this November.”
