Priebus Statement on MA Special Election and Democrat Policies
MADISON—Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement regarding the Massachusetts Senate special election and what it means for Republicans in 2010:
“American voters have made themselves clear. Three months ago, voters in New Jersey and Virginia rejected the Democrats’ tax-and-spend agenda. Now, in the bluest of blue states, the people of Massachusetts sent a message to Democrats across the country: listen or you’ll be next.
From the failed stimulus, to the cap-and-trade national energy tax, to a government takeover of health care attempt shrouded with secrecy, the American people do not approve of the Democrats’ big-government policies that do nothing to create jobs. Voters are connecting with Republican candidates because of our principles of lower-taxes, smaller government, and fiscal responsibility.
Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts should serve as the latest reminder to Wisconsin Democrats that voters are watching. Instead of telling their constituents what is good for them and blindly following their Washington leadership, it’s time for Wisconsin Democrats like Russ Feingold, Steve Kagen, Ron Kind, and Dave Obey to start listening.”
