Democrat gubernatorial candidates in Wisconsin continue to move further to the left with less than three months to go until their party’s primary, staking out increasingly extreme positions while pledging to reverse Governor Scott Walker’s pro-jobs progress.
A new report by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reveals that nine of the Democrat candidates for governor, including Tony Evers, Paul Soglin, and Dana Wachs, have all pledged to repeal Act 10, a law championed by Governor Scott Walker that has saved billions of dollars for Wisconsin taxpayers. One candidate, union boss Mahlon Mitchell, even tried to rewrite his record to appear more opposed to the law in an attempt to appeal to liberal primary voters.
With The Associated Press reporting that there is “no clear front-runner” among at least ten Democrat contenders slated to speak at the party’s convention this Friday, any one of the candidates who has committed to reversing Governor Walker’s pro-growth policies has a chance of winning the nomination. As Democrats fight to prove who is the most extreme far-left candidate to lead their party in November, they continue to show how out-of-touch they are with Wisconsin voters.
