Rebecca Kleefisch campaigns in La Crosse, criticizes Evers on abortion

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Wisconsin GOP gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Kleefisch made a campaign stop in La Crosse on Wednesday.

The former lieutenant governor said she is the best candidate for Wisconsin because she’s a K-12 mom on a budget.

If elected, Kleefisch says she will make Wisconsin affordable and safe and pass universal school choice legislation. When it comes to reproductive health, Kleefisch, who is pro-life, says Gov. Tony Evers is not being truthful to Wisconsin women.

“I’m sick of Democrats and liberals like Tony Evers trying to perpetuate this anti-feminist lie that women have to choose between their own success and the lives of their children,” Kleefisch said.

Kleefisch is one of four Republicans running for the GOP nomination. The primary is Aug. 9.
