GOP Rep.: Wisconsin Voter ID Law Will Help Republicans In General Election

A Republican congressman on Tuesday night acknowledged that the new law requiring a photo ID to vote in Wisconsin could help Republican candidates at the polls in the general election.

“I think Hillary Clinton is about the weakest candidate the Democrats have ever put up. And now we have photo ID, and I think photo ID is going to make a little bit of a difference as well,” Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI), a supporter of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), told Milwaukee television station TMJ4 when asked how either Cruz or Donald Trump could win in November.

The chair of Wisconsin’s Democratic party, Martha Laning, quickly bashed Grothman’s comment.

“Well there it is – If you can’t win Wisconsinite’s votes the fair and square way, you impose voter id to gain an advantage so you win,” she wrote in a Facebook post.
