MADISON, Wis. — In a campaign appearance Tuesday, Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump made comments inciting violence as a means to prevent Hillary Clinton from appointing judges to the federal judiciary if she is elected President.

Wisconsin Republicans including Gov. Walker, Sen. Ron Johnson, Rep. Paul Ryan, Rep. Robin Vos, Sen. Scott Fitzgerald and fellow Republican state legislators have remained silent regarding Trump’s latest irresponsible and dangerous comments that “… if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is …”

The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross:

“Donald Trump has set a new low with his outrageously irresponsible and dangerous comments inciting violence.

“Gov. Walker, Sen. Ron Johnson, Rep. Paul Ryan, Rep. Robin Vos, Sen. Scott Fitzgerald and their fellow Republican state legislators endorsing Donald Trump lose any credibility they may still have if they fail to immediately denounce his latest irresponsible and dangerous comments and rescind their endorsements of his candidacy.

“They’ve chosen political expediency over principle as Donald Trump’s misogyny, racism and xenophobia has run amok. It’s far past time for them to say ‘enough’ and withdraw their support for this dangerous man and his repugnant antics.”
