LA CROSSE, WI – After Donald Trump’s latest tirade of racist remarks aimed at a sitting federal judge, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“Donald Trump’s latest remarks have been labeled ‘indefensible’ and ‘racist’ by many in his own party, yet Wisconsin’s Senate Republicans continue to stand by their nominee. They’ve made it crystal clear that they think Donald Trump’s message of racism, xenophobia and misogyny will help them win elections.”

“Donald Trump, through his repeated actions and words, has proven he is too divisive, dangerous and erratic to be President. In order to move our state forward, I implore my Republican colleagues to denounce Mr. Trump’s hateful rhetoric and unconditionally reject his presidential candidacy.”
