Soros, Pelosi Dumping Money Into “Non Partisan” Wisconsin Judge Race
Washington, D.C.: “Wisconsin’s so-called ‘nonpartisan’ Supreme Court election on April 4 is a perfect example of the great electoral shift in America,” said Phyllis Schlafly Eagles President Ed Martin. “The liberal candidate, Milwaukee County Judge Janet Protasiewicz is being bankrolled to the tune of more than $8 million by the state Democrat Party. So much for ‘non-partisan.’
“The real kicker, though, is who’s funding Wisconsin Democrats. The usual leftwing suspects appear, like Nancy Pelosi and Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, but the most concerning name on that donor list right now is George Soros and his $1 million giving. The local and state election spending of Soros is no secret, and it’s time conservatives and the Republican Party adjust strategies and focus smaller.
“The national political stage often dominates the conversation, but wise leaders like Phyllis Schlafly knew better! Phyllis always said that the most important office in America wasn’t President, but the precinct committeeman. If you want to change a political party, start from the ground up. If you want to change a state, you start at the local level. Change the municipalities, change the counties, change the state, then the electoral college! It’s all connected and our radical leftwing opponents have been marching that way now unopposed for too long.
“Soros and his ilk are well-known now for funneling absolutely unqualified and atrociously political District Attorneys into cities across America. My question is — where is the Republican plan to combat this dramatic shift? If we are losing cities faster than we can respond electorally, the dramatic shift of states and the nation is at hand. I would argue we see the evidence of it already in the dramatic shift of 2016 and 2020 electoral maps.
“A new generation of conservative leaders are stepping up to tackle this strategic shift, and we need to support them! PACs and organizations with national reach are getting down to the school board level to ensure that we don’t give up any more local offices to the Soros-funded radical left. This mindset shift needs to sweep all of the conservative movement before we simply can’t turn the tide of nationally funded state candidates like Judge Janet Protasiewicz in Wisconsin.”
