Scott Bauer today reports Wisconsin election conspiracy theorist running for governor:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A state lawmaker who has won praise from former President Donald Trump for his attempts to reverse President Joe Biden’s win in Wisconsin filed paperwork Thursday to run for governor, a move that would shake up the Republican primary.
State Rep. Timothy Ramthun, a conspiracy theorist who was disciplined last month by Republican leadership over false election claims, filed paperwork with the state creating a gubernatorial campaign committee. The move came after his campaign website was up briefly Wednesday before being taken down after he was contacted by news outlets.
Ramthun did not immediately return a message seeking comment Thursday. Rebecca Kleefisch, who was lieutenant governor under Scott Walker, and former U.S. Senate candidate and Marine Kevin Nicholson were already in the Republican field.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, also a purveyor of false claims that Trump won the 2020 election, is endorsing Ramthun and said he will appear at a Saturday rally in Wisconsin to launch Ramthun’s candidacy.
Sowing and reaping for the WISGOP.
