Speaker Vos Statement on the Redistricting Ruling
“There are only two things that are certain about this case: it’s unprecedented and it isn’t over.”
Madison…Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement regarding the federal redistricting ruling.
“There are only two things that are certain about this case: it’s unprecedented and it isn’t over. The ruling can and should be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The state of Wisconsin has competitive legislative districts that meet every traditional principle of redistricting. Republicans win elections because we have better candidates and a better message that continues to resonate with the voters.
“The court has essentially created a brand new test that is significantly flawed and is an encroachment by the court into the legislature’s duties. The new standard ignores Wisconsin’s political geography where Democrats are naturally clustered in urban centers like Milwaukee and Madison. We remain fully confident that the maps were constitutional when adopted, and will remain so when this case is finally concluded.”
Press Releases by Robin Vos
"We have cut taxes by nearly $5 billion, reduced the size of government and established a business climate that fosters economic growth."
“Instead of attacking one another and saying what shouldn’t be done, let’s work together to find what can be done.”
“...Secretary Gottlieb’s expertise and candor will be missed.”
The first of 16 Assembly GOP wins is being released today.
