Republicans rally base around Trump impeachment probe in battleground Wisconsin

WAUKESHA, Wis. (Reuters) – Terry Dittrich has been working with Donald Trump’s re-election campaign on a simple strategy to win the critical battleground of Wisconsin next year: Turn out even more gun lovers, anti-abortion conservatives and illegal immigration critics than in his surprise 2016 victory in the state.

The move by Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives to launch a formal impeachment investigation into Trump this week just made that job easier, said Dittrich, chairman of the state’s Republican Party in Waukesha County.

“I hate to say it’s good for us, but at the end of the day it will help drive up the vote count,” Dittrich said. “It shows how crazy and desperate the Democrats are to try and destroy this president and this country.”
