Statement on Senate District 30 election


In response to news that the general election in the 30th Senate District will be held on July 19th based on disqualification of Rep. John Nygren from the ballot, We Are Wisconsin spokesman Kelly Steele issued the following statement:

"The recall efforts in Senate District 30 have seen unprecedented allegations of fraud and corruption, and it's unfortunate that the man who oversaw and defended of much of that fraud – David VanderLeest – remains on the ballot."

"Nevertheless, voters will now face a stark choice between Dave Hansen's consistent record of standing up for middle class working families against Scott Walker's radical agenda, and candidate David VanderLeest – whose rap sheet reads like a directory of the Wisconsin state criminal code."

According to We Are Wisconsin's website, the "We Are Wisconsin" coalitional effort is composed of three distinct programs: voter education and mobilization program, grassroots lobbying program, and to publicly express support for candidates, it sponsors independent expenditure communications advocating for the election or defeat of specific candidates.
