“In 2016, if you talk to Wisconsinites, there was this sense that the state was being ignored, that we weren’t getting the resources that we needed, that volunteers weren’t showing up for shifts because they felt like it was in the bag. That is not happening even remotely [this year].” -Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler.
