Trump Allies Defend Wied Against GOP Rival’s Attack in Wisconsin Race

Former President Donald Trump ’s allies are speaking out against a Republican candidate in Wisconsin, claiming the candidate was unfairly targeted with a complaint. Tony Wied, running for the seat of former Rep. Mike Gallagher, has been accused of misleading voters in order to secure a spot on the ballot. However, the complaint was filed by a volunteer for one of Wied’s top Republican challengers, Andre Jacque, leading Trump’s close circle to criticize the attack as a political ploy.

Wied’s campaign spokesperson dismissed the complaint as a move by “career politicians” like Jacque to sway power and remove the Trump-endorsed conservative from the ballot. Meanwhile, Jacque’s campaign denied involvement in the complaint, asserting that Wied must address the alleged fraud committed by his campaign.

Trump’s close allies condemned Jacque, claiming he is using unethical tactics to target Wied, the candidate endorsed by President Trump. They contended that removing signatures from Wied’s petition would still likely not disqualify him, and accused Jacque’s campaign of harming Wied’s chances with the complaint.

The complaints and backlash reflect the influential role of former President Trump in endorsing and supporting candidates. The primary election in August will determine the Republican nominee, and the winner will be favored to win the seat in the November election. The seat is currently rated as “Solid Republican” by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.
