MADISON – With just 30% of the vote, Republican Tom Larson barely eked out a win in Tuesday’s primary election in the 67th

Assembly District.

“Even conservatives in the 67th District seem lukewarm to supporting Larson in his run for the State Assembly,” said Mike Tate, Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.  “I can understand their hesitation – they know Larson will be a rubber stamp for the GOP agenda – rolling back the tax reforms made to protect Wisconsin’s working families.”

Tate noted Republican leaders hope to re-open the legal loopholes that, for years, helped huge corporations avoid their fair share of taxes at the expense of the middle class.

“Regular folks can’t afford a ‘representative’ who puts the needs of big business before their own,” said Tate.  “Voters can’t afford a Republican rubber stamp, like Larson.”
