DNC to launch billboards, bus signs in Milwaukee for RNC hitting Trump over Roe, democracy

Donald Trump Joe Biden 06.28

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) will launch eight billboards in Milwaukee during the Republican National Convention next week, making the case that reproductive rights and democracy are on the ballot in November.

On the billboards, first shared exclusively with The Hill, Milwaukee will see “Democracy is on the ballot, folks” and “Restore Roe? Vote for Joe!!”

“Joe Biden will: restore Roe, fight for freedoms, defend democracy,” another billboard reads.

The billboards will be in English and Spanish and aims to remind “Milwaukee that Biden is the only candidate defending democracy and freedoms,” according to the DNC.

The DNC has also arranged for signs on 57 buses around Milwaukee to include seven slogans supporting Biden with similar messages about democracy and Roe, including, “Restore Roe? Vote for Joe!!,” the committee said.

President Biden has made restoring the protections that Roe v. Wade provided a key pillar of his campaign after the Supreme Court overturned federal abortion protections. He also often warns on the campaign trail that former President Trump is a threat to democracy, citing his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

The focus on democracy on the billboards comes after the Supreme Court gave Trump a win by determining core presidential powers are immune from criminal prosecution, returning his federal case on his efforts to overturn the 2020 election back to a lower court.

Biden has harshly criticized the ruling, calling it a “dangerous precedent” and warning that the ruling means “the American people must decide if they want to entrust” the presidency to Trump knowing he can “be even more emboldened.”

The DNC also recently launched 10 billboards in the Milwaukee area, ahead of the convention, spotlighting Trump’s alleged remarks calling Milwaukee a “horrible city.”
