WisGOP Statement Congratulating Tom Tiffany For His Victory in the Wisconsin Seventh Congressional District Primary

February 18, 2020

[Madison, WI] – In response to Tom Tiffany’s victory in the Wisconsin Seventh Congressional District Primary, the Republican Party of Wisconsin issued the following statements from Chairman Andrew Hitt and Executive Director Mark Jefferson:

“The Republican Party of Wisconsin would like to congratulate Tom Tiffany on his victory in Tuesday’s Spring Primary election. Tom Tiffany is an ideal candidate to replace Rep. Sean Duffy and fight for the people of Wisconsin’s Seventh Congressional District in Washington. The Republican Party of Wisconsin is pleased to support him on May 12,” said Andrew Hitt, Chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin.

“Democrats recognized early that they have little chance to win this race, given the conservative make-up of the district, and their candidate’s extreme views on issues ranging from supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump to attempting to roll back our 2nd Amendment rights. That’s why Gov. Tony Evers fought to suppress votes in the seventh district by calling the election on May 12th, instead of the already scheduled General Election on April 7. Gov. Evers didn’t want too many votes from northern Wisconsin to sway the race for state Supreme Court. Now area voters will have to go to the polls twice to have their votes fully count. We urge northern Wisconsin voters to choose Tom Tiffany to represent them in Washington this May,” said Mark Jefferson, Executive Director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin.
