Tool of the Week: The left’s governor

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 14, 2022

MADISON — Gov, Tony Evers won a second term Tuesday, and promptly made clear why he is Wisconsin’s chief executive of the left.

In his victory speech, the Democrat doubled down on his far left agenda that has only widened the Badger State’s deep political divide.

“We’re just getting started, folks,” Evers said in a giddy election night address to his liberal supporters.

Evers promised he would be a defender of the left’s abortion-on-demand demands and their costly climate change hysteria. He pledged more of the same executive branch-driven social re-engineering in the guise of “diversity, equity and inclusion” policies. And he hinted at more of the kind of big government spending that has sent inflation soaring to levels not seen in a long time.

“I would never make promises I couldn’t keep and I always work for you,” Evers said. “We’ve worked hard to keep those promises and try to do the right thing.”

Of course, Evers lied. Wisconsin is used to it. He has made lots of promises over the past four-plus years, plenty he hasn’t delivered on. Thankfully, a Republican—controlled Legislature has mainly checked Evers’ leftist inclinations.

The governor has repeatedly tried to do the “left thing” for Wisconsin, and he is about to push even harder to try to reward the Madison and Milwaukee liberals who turned out en masse to elect him again. He is really their governor, their tool.

And Tony Evers is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
