Friends of Sheila Harsdorf issued the following statements today in a press release:
Just days into her campaign, union activist Shelly Moore has announced that she will defend the status quo and opened up a campaign headquarters jointly with Advancing Wisconsin, a newly formed special interest organization that will be funneling money into Wisconsin.
"Shelly Moore is a vocal mouthpiece for protecting the status quo and defending the state’s biggest special interest groups who champion a tax-and-spend agenda," said Nathan Duerkop, Friends of Sheila Harsdorf campaign spokesman. "This week’s moves by Moore’s campaign show the obvious – she is a single-issue candidate intent on blocking government reform. It is an agenda that Moore would have middle-class taxpayers finance and one we simply cannot afford."
"Over the last months, recall circulators from Madison, Milwaukee, Michigan, and even New York have marched into western Wisconsin," Duerkop said. "These special interests do not care about our jobs, our taxes, or our state’s budget. Now we find out that Shelly Moore is literally moving in with them as part of her campaign operations. It is not surprising, but voters need to know just how closely aligned Shelly Moore is with a liberal agenda that would tax and spend us into bankruptcy."
"They [Advancing Wisconsin] aren't even on the same floor, and this is just blatantly false," Morris said. "They are indeed in the same building, but they do not work together, speak or anything like that."
"I guess Sheila is running scared," Morris continued. "They feel like they need to attack with blatant lies and it's clear that Shelly Moore is making an impact. She's a strong candidate and they're throwing the bombs that they have to."
