By - Mar 2nd, 2021 04:53 pm

(MADISON) — Following failed GOP congressional candidate Derrick Van Orden’s announcement that he was “seriously considering running” for Congress again, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler issued this statement:

“In the months since Wisconsin voters rejected Derrick Van Orden, he’s launched Semitic and personal attacks on Twitter, spread conspiracy theories about his own election, and demonstrated alongside the rioters who attacked the very building he’d sought to work in. Derrick Van Orden’s extremism doomed him at the ballot box the first time around, and the result will be no different if he runs again.”
