Tony Evers on Government Reform

 

 


Create a nonpartisan redistricting commission

When more than 80 percent of our state supports medical marijuana, 80 percent support universal background checks and extreme risk protection orders, and 70 percent support expanding Medicaid, and elected officials can ignore those numbers without consequence, folks, something's wrong. I will be signing an executive order to create a nonpartisan redistricting commission who will draw The People's Maps. When presented to the Legislature next year, I hope they will receive bipartisan support.

Overturn Citizens United: limit political donations

Q: Support Citizens United decision, allowing unlimited political donations from corporations & unions? Views on Wisconsin campaign finance rules?

Tony Evers (D): Overturn Citizens United. Reverse Walker-supported law that limited political corruption investigations, doubled campaign contribution limits, & eased cooperation between candidates & outside groups.

Scott Walker (R): No public statement on Citizens United. To avoid "political witch hunts," he & allies pushed through a law to limit some corruption investigations. See defense & criticism of his approach to campaign finance limits and these investigations.

Close the chapter of voter suppression in Wisconsin

Q: Support voting rules that prevent fraud, even if that limits access?

Tony Evers (D): No. Will "close the chapter of voter suppression in Wisconsin." Supports automatic voter registration.

Scott Walker (R): Yes. Necessary to prevent voter fraud.

Q: Support nonpartisan redistricting to address charges of partisan gerrymandering?

Evers: Yes. "Politicians should not be picking their constituents, the people should be picking their politicians."

Walker: No. Supported redistricting.
