Wisconsin: “Ex-GOP Official Who Told People to ‘Prepare for War’ Will Be a Hudson Election Worker”


The man who stepped down as chair of the St. Croix County Republican Party after urging people to “prepare for war” will get to serve as an election judge in Hudson—and a council member who criticized the move has been forced to apologize.

John Kraft resigned a year ago as local Republican Party leader amid pressure from his own political party after making a series of social media posts in which he urged people to “prepare for war” against political opponents in the months leading up to the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the US Capitol. Council member Joyce Hall issued an apology to Kraft during Tuesday’s City Council meeting rather than face censure. 

But one day after apologizing, Joyce told UpNorthNews  she “did the right thing” by raising questions about Kraft despite the resulting controversy.
