Wisconsin Congresswoman Gwen Moore says “the biggest protest” is voting — and she’s urging Wisconsin Democrats at their party’s national convention to do what they can to get Hillary Clinton elected president.
“I feel right at home here in the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection,” Moore told state delegates on Monday. “Especially when I am able to have breakfast with cheeseheads from Wisconsin.”
Moore said she’s 65, so she was a teenager during the ’60s — “when every day was a protest day.” But Moore is cautioning protesters in Philadelphia where the Democratic National Convention is underway. “A protest, which means that we don’t come and vote, that’s not going to help us win the progressive agenda. And I have got to congratulate the Bernie supporters – this is just a kick-ass platform.”
“You cannot protest by voting for some third party, or do what I used to do, write my son’s name in when I didn’t like some candidate. That kind of protest is not going to work.”
Moore is scheduled to address the DNC Tuesday night.
