Er, I meant, who moved the WI Primary:
In a reversal, Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers announced he wants to postpone his state’s Tuesday election. The Democrat called the state legislature into a special session on Saturday to take up legislation that would avoid in-person voting and create an all-mail election with a deadline of May 26 to return ballots — which was swiftly rejected by Republican leaders in the state.
Evers had previously called for a predominantly mail-in election, but not for the election to be postponed. Republicans rejected Evers’ earlier push for ballots to be mailed to every registered voter.
I believe he doesn’t have to work with his legislature to do this, but he does need them to pay for printing absentee ballots for everyone.
“Hundreds of thousands of workers are going to their jobs every day, serving in essential roles in our society,” state House Speaker Robin Vos and state Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, both Republicans, said in a statement. “There’s no question that an election is just as important as getting take-out food.
“Our Republic must continue to function, and the many local government positions on the ballot must be filled so that municipalities can swiftly respond to the crisis at hand. We continue to support what Governor Evers has supported for weeks: the election should continue as planned on Tuesday.”
Expect the Republicans to go full-on buggy to block this.
