Read full press release
MADISON— Wisconsin Family Action PAC (WFA PAC) issued the following statement from WFA PAC director Julaine Appling regarding Tuesday’s election results.
“We heartily congratulate Governor Scott Walker on his victory. In addition, we congratulate Brad Schimel on winning the Attorney General’s race and the Senate and Assembly Republicans on not just holding their majorities but increasing them.
“Wisconsin voters understand that Wisconsin’s greatest resource is her married dad-and-mom families. Exit polls show that these are the very folks who voted in sizeable numbers for Governor Walker and the other conservative winners in this election. These families know that when they are strong and independent of government, our state is strong. This election gave us leaders who will advance policies that enable families to become or remain independent of government—and that helps the entire state. We are proud of the work our organizations, Wisconsin Family Action and Wisconsin Family Council, in addition to WFA PAC, did to help secure conservative victories statewide.
“We look forward to working with Governor Walker, leadership in the Senate and Assembly, as well as with many of the individual legislators who we know are rock-solid on marriage, family, life and liberty, to advance an agenda that will truly be in the best interest of our state. We are especially pleased that other WFA PAC-endorsed candidates such as Devin LeMahieu (SD 9), Janel Brandtjen (AD 22), Mike Rohrkaste (AD 55), Jesse Kremer (AD 59), and David Heaton (SD 85) will be joining the state legislature. These strong leaders will be important as we look to advance our agenda that will strengthen and preserve marriage, family, life and religious freedom in Wisconsin.
”It’s also encouraging to have Glenn Grothman headed to Washington, D.C. We have no doubt that Glenn will carry high in the US House of Representatives the pro-family, pro-life, pro-liberty, pro-liberty banner just as he has done so admirably in our state legislature for many years. Wisconsin Family Action PAC is proud to have endorsed Glenn and long-time Member of Congress Jim Sensenbrenner. Wisconsin’s strong and proud tradition of good governing is well represented in Congress.
“As exciting as last night was, the business of governing is far different from that of campaigning. We encourage newly elected, re-elected and ongoing elected officials to put principle ahead of politics and character ahead of convenience, and the people who elected them ahead of power. If that happens, we know Wisconsin will indeed continue to move Forward!”
