Dems against legislation

The Democratic Party of Door County has come out against the legislation passed by the state legislature and signed by outgoing Governor Scott Walker last week. Chairman Will Gregory called Republicans’ actions after losing the executive branch in the November election “unbelievable” and “unconscionable.” Some liberal organizations like One Wisconsin Now have already filed legal action against the bill that limits early voting to two weeks prior to an election. Other bills may be challenged later as well. Gregory says the DPDC won’t challenge any of the bills but will support any organization that does. "I'm going to support those who will be fighting. The way to restore the will of the people that got involved in the last election is to make sure the rule of law is followed."

 

Ron Heuer, Chairman of the Republican Party of Kewaunee County, says the DPDC is overreacting to all this. 

 

 

Part of the legislation will limit the power of Governor-elect Tony Evers and Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul.
