MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers says he holds no grudges with Republicans who control the Legislature, even as both sides continue to fight in court and have found little common ground early in the Democrat’s administration.
Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on Wednesday told The Associated Press that Evers should stop “obsessing” over what happened in the lame duck legislative session and move on to forge a working relationship with Republicans.
Vos says Evers needs to “move beyond the grudge.”
In response, Evers tells AP he holds no grudges and routinely meets with Republican lawmakers. He says, “I haven’t noticed anybody holding grudges against me.”
Evers downplayed Vos’s comments as “huff and puff.” He says, “That’s how people act within the bubble that exists around the Capitol.”
