While in Middleton, I appreciated hearing the diverse perspectives of the Party Faithful and discussing what conservatives can do to win in November, and how we can make Wisconsin a better place to live for families today and for generations to come.
I’ve learned a lot from these conversations. My biggest takeaway? Republicans have more in common than we give ourselves credit for.
The Republican Party was born in Ripon, Wisconsin of a group of independent thinkers who sought to end the evil of slavery in the United States. To this day, Wisconsin Republicans are still independent thinkers – and even rabble-rousers – motivated by a love of country and a desire to strengthen our communities through tried-and-true conservative policies. These conservative ideals are what unite us, and if we effectively spread our message, they are our key to success in these crucial 2022 elections.
Over the next several months, outside forces will seek to highlight the areas where Republicans disagree rather than the opportunities for us to come together. Democrats will try to exploit our divisions to weaken us, and the media will sell controversy for headlines and clicks. We won’t let these forces distract us from the mission that we know is paramount – to re-elect Senator Ron Johnson, defeat failed Governor Tony Evers, send a Republican to Washington from the third congressional district, and elect conservatives in local races across Wisconsin – all in our quest to defend America.
