The overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court and the future of legalized abortion in Wisconsin is now part of the political conversation in this fall’s races.
Wisconsin is one of two dozen states where abortion is now illegal without Roe.
Businessman Tim Michels, who is running in the Wisconsin GOP gubernatorial primary, has narrowly taken the lead in the crowded field, according to a new poll from Marquette Law School.
Michels, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, leads former Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, businessman Kevin Nicholson, and State Rep. Tim Ramthun.
Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels called on Governor Tony Evers to prepare for possible unrest in the coming weeks.
The remarks are in response to the pending decision from the U.S. Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson, which focuses on the constitutional right of abortions.
Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Kleefisch is touting endorsements by more than “100 local Wisconsin current and former elected officials from across the state.”
The local supporters include individuals that have held various positions: mayors, county board supervisors, school board members, city councilmen, and other officials.
Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels released a new plan to “drain the Madison Swamp” and restore transparency to voters in the state.
According to the GOP hopeful, politicians in the state’s capital have remained subject to ideas and proposals presented by special interest groups, rather than the will of the people.
Former President Donald Trump opted to endorse Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels in the GOP primary.
The businessman has surged in the polls since entering the race later than other opponents.
“Tim Michels is a very successful businessman running for Governor of the Great State of Wisconsin,” Trump said in a statement. “During my Administration, Tim served on my infrastructure task force, and helped us plan and start building the Keystone XL Pipeline before Joe Biden launched his assault on American Energy production.”
According to a new poll from Marquette Law School, nearly half of all Wisconsin Republicans would be more likely to support a candidate, if they were endorsed by former President Donald Trump.
The poll could provide insight to the state’s upcoming primaries. Trump has witnessed mixed results in contests where he offered an endorsement.
The Republicans running for governor in Wisconsin are promising more cops, more prisons, and say they’ll fire prosecutors who don’t get tough on crime after a violent weekend in Milwaukee that saw more than two dozen people shot.
Milwaukee Police say Friday night’s shootings near the Deer District wounded 21 people. Another of those shootings saw 17 people shot. A string of shootings on Sunday saw another five people shot, including two people who died.
The Democratic Governors Association on Wednesday pledged $75 million for ad buys on behalf of reelection efforts for seven Democrat incumbent governors.
Tony Evers’ reelection campaign gained $21 million in Wisconsin. The group is also promising to spend $2.5 million to reelect New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham; $4.5 million to reelect Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz; $5 million to reelect Colorado Gov. Jared Polis; $5 million to reelect Maine Gov. Janet Mills; $10 million to reelect Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak; and $23 million to reelect Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels is distancing himself from his connections to other states, as he runs to lead Wisconsin.
First reported by Wisconsin Right Now, Michels allegedly has extensive holdings in Connecticut and New York.
