Displaying her strong desire to enter the Washington establishment, Vukmir proudly retweeted a photo linked arm in arm with D.C. lobbyist Mark Smith.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Brandon Weathersby reacted, saying “It’s pretty clear D.C. Leah’s priorities lie with the powerful D.C. elite. D.C.
