One Wisconsin Now Statements on Trump Takeover of GOP

‘To Scott Walker, Charlie Sykes & the Tea Party Wisconsin Legislature: You Broke It, You Bought It’

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements on Donald Trump becoming the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party for the 2016 presidential race.

“Donald Trump is the embodiment of the same hate culture upon which Gov. Scott Walker and many of the state’s leading elected Republicans built their careers and rose to power.

“They stoke racial animus, scapegoat people of color and use their propaganda vehicles, from right wing talk radio to the limitless financial resources of the Bradley Foundation, to justify personal and public policy attacks against people different from them.

“Now upon the ascension of Donald Trump the leadership of the party they created we say to Scott Walker, Charlie Sykes and the Tea Party Wisconsin Legislature, ‘You broke it, you bought it.”
