PowerUp Podcast: GOP Chair Andrew Hitt on Biden’s Wisconsin trip

Empower Wisconsin | Sept 8, 2020

MADISON — Joe Biden has been a stranger to Wisconsin, a key battleground state in his bid for the presidency.

Last week, after 674 days away, the Democratic Party’s nominee stepped on Badger State soil for the first time since he campaigned for U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin and then-gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers.

Andrew Hitt, chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, says the former vice president wouldn’t have ended his absence had President Donald Trump not come to riot-ravaged Kenosha to meet with law enforcement and devastated business owners.

“I don’t think he was planning to go anywhere. That’s what I was hearing in talking at the (Republican National Convention) with numerous national press folks. They said very clearly that they were hearing he was not planning to travel this campaign cycle,” Hitt told Empower Wisconsin’s M.D. Kittle last week on the Jay Weber Show on NewsTalk 1130 WISN.

“I think it’s very clear his advisors started getting nervous about slippage in the polls, slippage in their support, realizing that they’re on the wrong side of law and order that the president is so strong on. He got smoked out of his basement (Thursday) and had to come to Wisconsin,” Hitt added.

Does the Republican Party chief believe Gov. Tony Evers, who insists he told Biden to stay out of Wisconsin just as he did in a snotty letter to Trump? Not a chance.

RPW Chairman Andrew Hitt is our guest today on this edition of PowerUp, Empower Wisconsin’s podcast.
