The Democratic Party of Wisconsin on Thursday blasted Republicans over a television advertisement attacking Rep. Donna Seidel, a candidate in the upcoming recall election for the 29th State Senate District.
The ad by the Republican State Leadership Committee accused Seidel of having the wrong “recipe” for Wisconsin.
“Ads like this one, funded by out-of-state special interest groups, are sexist and embarrassing,” Zac Kramer, executive director for the State Senate Democratic Committee, said. “They should all be ashamed of their continued attacks on women. The ad continues the war on women that has been a popular talking point across the GOP platform.”
“It is clear that the Republican party believes that women only belong in the kitchen and this should be disconcerting to every citizen in the 29th Senate District.”
Seidel is running against Rep. Jerry Petrowski in the June 5 elections.
State Sen. Pam Galloway, the Republican who represented the 29th Senate District and faced a recall election, resigned from her seat in March.

Trump is ‘our chief criminal running a crime syndicate out of the West Wing’: Former federal prosecutor
Former federal prosecutor John Flannery is one of the over 1,100 former Justice Department lawyers and prosecutors who signed a letter demanding Attorney General Bill Barr resign after intervening to reduce the sentence of a close friend of President Donald Trump.
Flannery said that the backlash of Barr's intrusion is there are many who feel isolated or intimidated from speaking out against illegal or unethical things they witness.
"What they're doing is trying to erase the parallel case that was just the subject of the impeachment, because what [Roger] Stone is charged with was interfering in our election in 2016," explained Flannery. "And then obstructing the investigation by the Intelligence Committee into that interference, and causing them to lie and threaten and so forth. So, they'd like to erase that."
Buttigieg says Trump can ‘do chores’ if he’s unwilling to leave White House
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg joked on Monday about what he would do if President Donald Trump is unwilling to leave the White House after a 2020 loss.
During a campaign event in Reno, a voter worried that Trump might call his loss a hoax if the election is close.
"I mean, if he won't leave, I guess if he's willing to do chores, we can work something out," the candidate said to laughter and cheers.
Buttigieg argued that the best way to prevent Trump from "cheating" is to win by a significant margin.
"At the end of the day, there's only one president," he explained. "This is one of the reason we not just eke out a win, not just club everybody over the head and hope that we get to 51% and our Twitter followers outnumber your Twitter followers and we somehow piece together a squeaker."
Furious Franklin Graham blasts UK: I’m not homophobic I just ‘preach the truth of the gospel’ to save gays from Hell
Anti-LGBTQ activist Franklin Graham says he’s not homophobic, but he is calling LGBTQ activists “truthophobic” and “free-speech-ophobic.” Graham is once again blasting activists in the UK who have succeeded in getting venues in eight cities to ban him from spreading his hate speech.
The evangelical Christian preacher on Facebook says, “my eight-city evangelistic tour across the UK has been met with resistance by LGBTQ activists who inaccurately claim that I am homophobic, Islamophobic, and say that I speak hate. Anyone who knows me or has heard me speak knows that this really isn’t true—but, I DO preach the TRUTH of the Gospel.”
