No. The “critical issue… is maintaining the independence of the Wisconsin elections system”: the bipartisan Washington Elections Board (WEC). Says shifting oversight authority to the Secretary of State would make elections dependent on the “whims of partisan politics.”
Yes. “WEC is broken… not accountable to voters… and must be replaced.” Wants the state Assembly and Governor to reinstate the Secretary of State’s authority to oversee and administer elections, Believes legislature should decide level of authority.
No position found; his office has lacked the authority to administer voting rules.

Unclear. Won’t say whether Biden won legitimately, except to say that he “was certified the winner.” Seeks to “resolve all of the issues raised by various audits and investigations so that we all feel confident in any election result.”
