(WISCONSIN) — Today, the United States officially surpassed 200,000 Coronavirus-related deaths. Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement:

“As the US passes 200,000 confirmed COVID-19 deaths, our hearts go out to our grieving friends and neighbors as we cross this somber milestone. The victims of this pandemic come from every corner of our state, and each death is a singular tragedy for those they leave behind. Trump and his administration failed us — we know it didn’t have to be this bad. Trump delayed the government’s response, left states to fend for themselves, and politicized the virus when we desperately needed a comprehensive national strategy — all as Trump privately admitted he was downplaying the virus for political gain. For the over 100,000 Wisconsinites who have tested positive for COVID-19 and the millions facing economic hardship in its wake, we eagerly look towards November when we will vote to end Donald Trump’s failed presidency and move forward under Joe Biden’s steady leadership.”
