THE LINCOLN PROJECT STATEMENT ON JANET PROTASIEWICZ WINNING THE WISCONSIN SUPREME COURT ELECTION
April 4, 2023 – The Lincoln Project releases the following statement on Janet Protasiewicz winning election to the Wisconsin State Supreme Court:
“Tonight, the extremists lost in their latest attempt to undermine democracy with the election of Janet Protasiewicz. In a week where Donald Trump and his extremist allies attacked the Rule of Law in a desperate attempt to escape culpability for his crimes, Wisconsin voted to enforce the Rule of Law, support democratic checks and balances, and ensure that the next election takes place under a fair election system.
“As we move towards the 2024 Presidential election, Donald Trump and the MAGA GOP are working to undermine our elections at every opportunity to give him the best possible chance at winning. They are destroying our democratic norms by sowing doubt about election processes, gerrymandering districts, and working to make it harder for people to vote.
“If the nation is to protect democracy, then all Americans must come together and once again stand up and put the national interest above their own parochial politics and defeat the MAGA cult that is the GOP.”
The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
