DLCC Announces Wisconsin Spotlight Candidates

Press Releases

WASHINGTON — As the first Wisconsin voters cast their general election ballots, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee announced 15 new Spotlight races in the state. Democrats are poised to block a Republican supermajority in both chambers to protect Governor Tony Evers’ veto power. This is especially critical to fight Wisconsin’s notoriously gerrymandered maps and to stop the GOP’s malicious agenda.

“With redistricting on the line, it is more important than ever to protect the legislature from a GOP supermajority,” said Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee President Jessica Post. “Republicans have rigged the maps to maintain control over a state that clearly wants to vote them out. We are proud to fight alongside our incredible slate of Spotlight candidates and legislators to put the power back in the hands of the voters.”

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is the official Democratic organization dedicated to winning state legislative seats. Earlier this year, the DLCC unveiled its unprecedented $50 million campaign to “Flip Everything” this November. Since Trump’s election, the DLCC and state partners have flipped over 450 seats and 10 chambers from red to blue.
