With the controversial Helsinki Summit between President Donald Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin still causing a national stir, local political party chairs are weighing in the impact the fallout may have on the upcoming fall elections. Will Gregory, the new chair of the Door County Democratic Party, says these type of events tend to trickle down to local politics.
Kewaunee County Republican Party chair Ron Heuer firmly believes that Trump made a mistake in what he said in Helsinki but says it was blown out of proportion and will not impact the fall elections.
Trump has since stated that he misspoke on the Russian election meddling. The fall election will be on Tuesday, November 6.
