MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements regarding the victory of Gov.-Elect Tony Evers and Lt. Gov.-Elect Mandela Barnes, buoyed in part by record early voting in the wake of the successful 2016 One Wisconsin Institute federal early voting restoration and expansion lawsuit.

“Wisconsin proved with record early voting that when you give voters the ability to vote, they will vote.

“With Tony and Mandela, we have not just the opportunity but also the responsibility to build a fairer, more just and more inclusive Wisconsin and to take the fight to those who would stand in the way.”

Scott Walker will say and do anything to try and win an election, but the voters have spoken and Scott Walker must accept the will of the people. Scott Walker hasn’t lost an election since 1993, but that streak ended tonight.”

One Wisconsin Now is a statewide communications network specializing in effective earned media and online organizing to advance progressive leadership and values.
