Statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair on Hillary Clinton and Tonight’s Primary Results

"Democrats are ready to turn the page and unite behind Hillary Clinton and the values that bind us together."

By - Jun 7th, 2016 08:06 pm

“Tonight, Hillary Clinton reached the number of pledged delegates needed to secure the Democratic Party’s nomination for President of the United States. I want to congratulate Secretary Clinton and her campaign on their victory this evening and all of the hard work they put into their campaign up to this point. In addition, I am so proud to say it is the Democrats that will be the first major party in American history to nominate a woman as our presidential nominee.

“This is a proud night for the Democratic Party, and I want to thank Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for running respectful and policy-oriented campaigns that address the real issues facing Americans. While it is easy to score cheap political points by degrading other candidates, neither Secretary Clinton nor Senator Sanders succumbed to the mudslinging and insult contest we saw from Donald Trump and the Republicans.

“The contrast between the priorities of the Democratic Party and the Republican Party is precisely why we are not only going to retain the White House, but score major victories up and down the ticket. Our party is working to ensure that regardless of the color of a person’s skin, religion, who they love, or their zip code, every person has an opportunity to succeed. In contrast, Donald Trump and the Republicans have been happy to insult judges based on their ethnicity, put a moratorium on Muslims entering the country, continue to fight marriage equality, and prioritize the pocketbooks of the rich.

“Democrats are ready to turn the page and unite behind Hillary Clinton and the values that bind us together. Voters know Donald Trump does not have the temperament to be president. His entire life has been about helping his bottom line, not everyday Americans who just want a fair shot to get ahead.”
