Christmas came early for our Wisconsin Democracy
Milwaukee, WI - “Christmas came early for our Wisconsin Democracy. Today’s decision by the Wisconsin Supreme Court is a win for every disenfranchised voter who for too long has had to suffer the policies of an illegitimate far-right majority in our legislature.
“After years of craven partisanship in our state’s highest court, today is the start of restoring balance, order, and the rule of law. I appreciate their preference for the legislature to work together on remedial maps. I stand ready to work with legislative Republicans on the drafting of maps that are constitutional and fair.
“We don’t yet know what the final maps will look like, but one thing is clear - the days of unchecked one-party rule in a 50-50 state like Wisconsin are about to be over, and that is truly something to celebrate.”
