Tim Michels (R-MAGA) win Wisconsin Gubernatorial Primary over Rebecca Kleefisch (R)

Michels was endorsed by Trump and Kleefisch was endorsed by Mike Pence. Frankly, I think a Pence endorsement is the kiss of death. Congratulations to Tim Michels. I do, however, disagree with your assertion that Rebecca Kleefisch is a RINO. She was LtGov under Scott Walker. If you recall, Scott Walker did the ballsiest, bravest thing a republican executive has done in modern American history. He stripped public unions of collective bargaining rights. He (and kleefisch) fought back against some of the largest state level protests in US history in 2011 and 2012. He survived a well organized recall election, easily winning. Kleefisch was the key force behind the bills that weakened public unions in Wisconsin. Kleefisch's kid was injured during the protests when a union protester hurled a brick, breaking her daughter's jaw.
