Visits WISGOP field offices statewide following endorsement at 2018 Republican convention
May 23, 2018
[Madison, WI] — After receiving the endorsement at the Republican Party of Wisconsin 2018 convention, candidate for U.S. Senate Leah Vukmir has been barnstorming the state and meeting with countless Republican voters at WISGOP field offices.
Check out some of the stories in the news from Leah Vukmir’s statewide tour.
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Days after claiming an endorsement for U.S. Senate at the Republican Party of Wisconsin convention, Leah Vukmir will tour party offices statewide beginning Wednesday. The tour is the first significant move by the state party to throw its support behind Vukmir, who received 72% backing from delegates at Saturday’s GOP convention.
From the Associated Press: Wisconsin Republican Party Chairman Brad Courtney calls Vukmir a “proven conservative” and the activists who voted to endorse her will be the “backbone” of GOP efforts to defeat Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin.
From WSAU: Vukmir tells WAOW-TV that she’s looking forward to showing people that she’s different from Baldwin. “I’ve had the opportunity to listen to people and hear what their concerns are. The first thing that I heard over and over again is they want people to follow through on their promises that were made at the election.”
From WJFW: “[I’m] a true conservative who actually gets things done [and] follows through on promises that were made and we’ve had a track record of doing that here in Wisconsin. It’s very hard for people in Wisconsin to tell me anything that [Tammy Baldwin] has done for our state,” said Vukmir. Vukmir says she wants to focus on issues like immigration, security, and health care.
From the Racine Journal Times: Less than a week after securing the endorsement for U.S. Senate from the Republican Party of Wisconsin, State Sen. Leah Vukmir, R-Brookfield, was visiting volunteers and supporters at the Racine County field office on Thursday.
From WFRV: Leah Vukmir was recently endorsed and received tremendous support from grassroots conservatives at the Republican Party of Wisconsin 2018 Convention this past weekend and now she’s doing a victory tour around the area. Today she stopped in Green Bay at the Field Office talking with supporters who have helped her campaign.
From the Eau Claire Leader Telegram: “I hope that we can unify together and keep our focus on Tammy,” Vukmir told about 15 people gathered at the state party’s northwest field office, “because ultimately she is the reason why we are here today, to make sure we remove her from office.” At her talk, Vukmir touched on taxes, the state’s low unemployment rate, immigration and Second Amendment rights.
