Brookfield, Wis. – U.S. Senate candidate and state Sen. Leah Vukmir issued the following statement Friday in reaction to news that China has banned online retailers from selling the Christian Bible:

“China’s censorship of the free expression of Christianity is barbaric. How can we expect to have a strong relationship with a country that cheats at trade and now aggressively targets specific religions to deny people fundamental rights? President Trump is right that we must get tough with China, and I call on Sen. Tammy Baldwin to denounce this move.”

Leah Vukmir is a nurse, military mom and conservative with a proven record who has stood with Gov. Walker in cutting taxes and implementing bold reforms. She is running for the U.S. Senate to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington. She currently serves as a state senator from Brookfield.

    I am a Christian and believe in gay marriage, a woman’s right to choose and that the death penalty is fundamentally wrong. I wonder if Ms.Vukmir supports my right to free expression of religion.
