After the Democratic sweep of the state wide elections on November 6th 2018, the GOP House Speaker Robin Vos and GOP Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald both emphasized that the Democrats didn’t have a mandate. And I agreed that they didn’t.
But the plurality of the state’s voters selected the Democratic candidates and they voted in a split government and obviously a desire for some changes in the Capitol.
So Sen. Fitzgerald and Rep. Vos: The Democrats may not have a mandate…BUT THE REPUBLICANS DON’T EITHER!
