Ain’t it rich: ‘Compassionate conservative’ is big lib

MADISON  — “Political newcomer” Andi Rich is running to unseat long-time state Rep. John Nygren (R-Marinette).

The challenger is running as a “compassionate conservative.” Rich likes to describe herself as having “old school Republican values.” That’s rich. She’s a Republican in Name Only, and this RINO has a full-fledged liberal record to prove it.

While she may be a newcomer to the 89th Assembly District t race, Rich is a political machine based on a review of her social network accounts. She supports U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the New York socialist’s Green New Deal, has bragged about voting for Bernie Sanders — twice — and is all in on government-run health care.

In one Facebook post, Rich insists the Green New Deal is a “comprehensive start” to the “types of actions we should be focusing on.”

Rich, who describes herself as a “local environment advocate,” has attacked Nygren on water quality issues in the 89th, particularly the PFAs broad narrative pushed by liberals. Despite unsettled science on Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, Wisconsin Democrats led by Gov. Tony Evers have pushed for stringent new PFAS standards that could have a disastrous impact on business and local utilities.

Rich, in her own press release, responds to criticism about her running as an environmentalist and a Republican. She claims she grew up “hunting and fishing,” and she “can’t think of many things more ‘American’ than living off the land, sighting rifles, and spending quality time with your family.”

As a small business owner, Rich says she believes in “self-determination rather than government handouts.”

So she supported a socialist who strongly believes in government handouts.

“I’ll say it again, in order for Bernie to do ANY of the things he wanted done, he’d have had to overturn Citizens United, and I was happy to vote for him twice for that reason alone,” she tweeted last week. “I didn’t see any Rs campaigning for that.”

Perhaps that’s because real conservatives don’t much care for stifling free speech.

Conservatives generally don’t support single-payer, government-run health care. Rich does. She posted on Facebook that the Unemployment Insurance debacle at the Department of Workforce Development is “One more reason to consider single payer, which most Americans are in favor of in some form.”

Rich is proud of voting for leftist judge Jill Karofsky for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. The Madison liberal defeated conservative Justice Daniel Kelly in the costly April election, narrowing the conservative-led court’s majority to 4-3.

The RINO has praised House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, given her thumbs up to Evers’ liberal policies, and endorsed claims that “Capitalism is horrible.” 

Rich couldn’t be found at the recent Republican Party of Wisconsin convention. She bragged that she was “Proud to be the only Republican candidate for the 89th Assembly District to NOT attend the CDC guideline ignoring” convention. Many of the attendees did not wear masks.

She did attend the Dems’ state convention last year, however. On her Facebook page she “strongly considered running as a Dem…” She insists she’s “not pretending to be somebody I’m not.”

Rich’s advocacy for far left policies and candidates suggests otherwise.
