MADISON – The following is a statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate on on Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional district race.
“Tom Petri’s retirement confirmed that there’s no room for moderates in Scott Walker’s Wisconsin or Paul Ryan’s Congress, as further evidenced by Republicans choosing Glenn Grothman as their nominee tonight.
“Wisconsin already sent one right-wing laughingstock to Washington D.C. in Ron Johnson, we don’t need another who will embarrass our state with plans to criminalize single-motherhood and who literally said he would like to turn back the clock to the …
Milwaukee County Supervisor David F. Bowen this week criticized a bill proposed by Rep. Chris Kapenga, R-Delafield, and Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-West Bend, which would prohibit Milwaukee County from enacting a “living wage” ordinance, saying it is an “attack on the working poor.”

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s Black Caucus on Wednesday called on Governor Scott Walker to denounce the outrageous comments about the Kwanzaa holiday celebration made by his key ally and top Republican Sen. Glenn Grothman.

Sen. Spencer Coggs denounced attempts by Republicans in the Legislature to make 11th hour changes to the governing structure of the Milwaukee Area Technical College that would substitute local control for state control and gut minority and other citizen representation on the MATC Board.

Glenn Grothman are fasttracking legislation, Senate Bill 275, that would almost immediately disband the current governing MATC board and replace it with a governing body that substitutes state for local representation,” Sen.

State Senator Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) has a very arrogant and annoying habit of putting his two cents where they don’t belong especially when it comes to issues that impact Milwaukee and its Black community. The self-appointed inquisitor of the Black community is at it again.
This time he has set his sights on casting aspersions on Mrs. Jeannetta Simpson- Robinson — an individual who earned iconic stature in our community during her life.
For nearly 38 years, Jeannetta Simpson-Robinson was ‘the voice of the voiceless’ in …
