'Fully respect people's votes'

Print Article

Since the recent election of Democrat Tony Evers, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald have spoken publicly about the intention to limit the powers of the new governor.

Democratic elections are the foundation of a healthy democracy. The people have spoken with their votes. They, and their votes, need to be fully respected!

Throughout Wisconsin's history, it was a given that election results would be fully accepted by both major parties in the spirit of cooperation for the good of the state. The Governor-Elect has reached out to state legislators with a heartfelt gesture of bipartisanship. The good people of Wisconsin now urge GOP legislative leaders to return the favor, and do the same.
