NOW: Wisconsin Democrats call out Republicans for their “extremist views“

MIDDLETON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Outside of the GOP Convention, Wisconsin Democrats called out Republicans for their quote, "extremist views".

They say GOP doesn't fight for what is in the best interest of Wisconsinites.

"Governor Evers wakes up trying to do the right thing for Wisconsinites," said Ben Wikler, Democratic Party chair. "These Republicans' candidates for governor seem to want to do the most extreme thing to appeal to Donald Trump."

"When you have candidates who pander to the extremes, you have to wonder who are they really working for," said State Rep. Dianne Hesselbein, Democrat of Middleton. "Are they working or you, or the ultra MAGA wing of the party only."

Democrats specifically attacked them for their stances on the 2020 election and abortion. All four Republican candidates for governor questioned the legitimacy of President Joe Biden's 2020 win in Wisconsin.

All four of them also support a ban on all abortions, including in cases of rape or incest.
