Heartland Signal: 'Tim Michels and one-party rule in Wisconsin'
Michels poses a unique danger to democracy in Wisconsin, both because of his extreme views on elections and due to the infrastructure Wisconsin Republicans have put in place for one-party rule.
The Recombobulation Area is a six-time Milwaukee Press Club award-winning weekly opinion column and online publication written and published by veteran Milwaukee journalist Dan Shafer. Learn more about it here.
“Republicans will never lose another election in Wisconsin after I’m elected governor,” said Tim Michels, at a campaign stop this week.
It’s a catastrophic gaffe for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in Wisconsin, and one that gives away the game for what his campaign is really about: Power.
