DLCC President Statement on Wisconsin GOP Lawsuit

Press Releases

WASHINGTON — Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee President Jessica Post released the following statement Wednesday evening following the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision to side with GOP legislators in their lawsuit to overrule Governor Tony Evers’ stay-at-home order:

“Yet again, Wisconsin Republicans are risking lives in their state for a blatant political power grab. Governor Evers’ stay-at-home order has the widespread support of voters and public health officials. Instead of working with the administration to safely lift public health measures at the right time, the GOP has opted instead to rush to end social distancing at the behest of right-wing fringe groups. Their callous and irresponsible lawsuit will cost lives in Wisconsin, force people to work in unsafe conditions, and harm the state’s ability to combat the virus, meaning longer-term damage to the economy and Wisconsin families.”
