It’s official, folks.

Trump-backed Tim Michels has defeated the Pence-backed GOP establishment candidate Rebecca Kleefisch in Wisconsin.

Great job, Tim.

Stalwart pollster Richard Baris noted that this was another notch in Trump’s belt, and a defeat for Pence.

Sorry, Mike Pence. It turns out no one wants what you’re selling.

Pretty soon, the GOPe donors will turn off the spigot for the failing establishment.

And so will their pollsters.

Republican turnout was huge.

Story here from NPR:

About a day after the FBI raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and resort, his pick for Wisconsin governor has won the Republican primary, according to a race call by The Associated Press.

Late in the campaign, Trump endorsed construction executive and self-described political newcomer Tim Michels who spent millions of his own dollars on a TV ad blitz, painting himself as a businessman and “outsider” who wants to turn government upside down.

After the backing of the former president in this race, Michels shot up in the polls and ran a competitive campaign against Rebecca Kleefisch, who was lieutenant governor under former Republican Gov. Scott Walker for eight years. Kleefisch was also supported by former Vice President Mike Pence.

Michels hasn’t gone as far as Trump when it comes to the way he describes the 2020 presidential election, but he has cast doubt on President Biden’s victory in Wisconsin, which was affirmed by a statewide canvas, a partial recount and multiple state and federal court decisions. When asked at a recent debate whether he’d sign legislation that would “decertify” Biden’s 2020 victory in Wisconsin, Michels kept his options open.

Overall, it was a bad day for the enemies of America.
