MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R) says his focus is on the future after beating his Republican counterpart Adam Steen, remaining the longest-serving Assembly leader in state history.
Vos denounced former Justice Michael Gableman, who’s been steadfast in wanting to overturn the 2020 presidential election, saying Gableman and the “one-percent far right of the party” are “obsessed with the past and not the future.”
“I’ve tried to be very consistent in saying you can’t go backwards, you can’t ‘unring’ the bell,” Vos said. “We know there were challenges. We had legislation drafted, it passed through both chambers and was unfortunately vetoed by Gov. Evers.”
He called it “constitutionally impossible” to overturn the election.
Vos, however, is “super excited” that Tim Michels (R) is the GOP nominee, even though he supported former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.
“We need a governor to work with the Republican party and pass those bills,” Vos said.
But even if Michels were to defeat Gov. Tony Evers (D), Vos is “not going to waste 10 seconds” talking to him about decertifying the 2020 election.
“Not going to happen,” Vos said. “We are moving forward. You cannot overturn the election. We know everybody from the Conservative Institute for Law and Liberty to the nonpartisan attorneys in the legislature have said you can’t go back and decertify an election.”
