(Campbellsport, WI) – State Senator Glenn Grothman (R – Campbellsport), Republican candidate for Congress, issued the following statement on Judge Crabb’s decision on Wisconsin’s marriage amendment:
“I’m extremely disappointed by this ruling, although I’m not surprised. As we’ve seen again and again, liberal judges are using their courtrooms to advance their extreme left-wing agenda because the people reject their philosophy any time the issue is put to a vote.
“I continue to firmly believe in restoring the traditional family as the center of our society, including a loving mother and father. The ‘progressive’ agenda is slowly eroding the family in order to place government at the center of our lives, and this is seen in attacks on traditional marriage via the courts and by the excessive welfare system that punishes couples who get married.
“I fully support Attorney General Van Hollen’s decision to appeal, and I hope and pray that higher courts will see the error of this decision.”
Grothman is a Republican candidate for Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District. He currently represents the 20th Senate District in the Wisconsin State Senate. The 6th Congressional District includes the counties of Ozaukee, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Winnebago, Dodge, Green Lake, Manitowoc, Marquette, Columbia, Waushara, and Milwaukee.
