Wisconsin: “GOP governor candidate Tim Michels won’t say whether he would certify the next presidential election”

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Former President Donald Trump’s preferred candidate for governor won’t say whether he would certify the next presidential election if Trump makes another run for the White House and again loses the key battleground state of Wisconsin. 

Tim Michels, a wealthy construction executive endorsed by Trump, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the question is too hypothetical to answer at this point, adopting a similar position his Republican primary opponent Rebecca Kleefisch took when asked whether she would have certified the 2020 election. 

The unwillingness to promise to count Wisconsin’s next presidential votes by leading Republican candidates for governor comes as a U.S. House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol has shown blocking the certification of Wisconsin’s 2020 election was key to Trump and his allies to a plot to overturn his re-election loss.
