New Lincoln Project Ad: Michels Tells Voters His Plan To Wreck Democracy


November 3, 2022In a new ad today, The Lincoln Project shows Tim Michels personally outlining to supporters his plan to end fair elections in the state if elected governor. Utilizing Republican Members of Congress Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, the ad tells Wisconsinites how there can be no higher priority than voting to ensure the protection of our democratic institutions by defeating Tim Michels.

You can watch the ad here. The ad will run digitally statewide targeting Republicans and Independents who do not think the election was stolen.

“Tim Michels, and all other MAGA candidates, are serious about rigging our election system so all future outcomes are predetermined,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “It’s not hyperbole and no one should think it can’t happen here. Protecting our democracy needs to be the first, last, and only issue in this election. Tim Michels must lose Tuesday to ensure the rule of law and a functioning democracy.”

The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
