( – Eric Hovde, a GOP Senate candidate who is challenging Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D) in Wisconsin suggested that the majority of residents in nursing homes should not be voting as their life expectancy is only around five to six months. 

Wisconsin is an important swing state that could potentially help determine which party will have control of the Senate, while also playing an important role in the presidential race between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden in the 2024 race. In the past, Baldwin has had an easy time winning reelections, still, the GOP believes that the close presidential race could indicate that there was an opportunity to flip the Senate seat. As such, they are rallying in support of Hovde ahead of the primary election on August 13. 

Hovde has also received the endorsement of Donald Trump but has recently dealt with backlash relating to the comments he had made regarding the residents of nursing homes in the 2020 presidential election. During the interview on the Guy Benson Show on April 5, Hovde had not expressed support for the unfounded false claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election but had expressed some concerns about the election. 

He argued that they had nursing homes where the Racine sheriff had been investigated. He added that there were nursing homes that had 100 percent voting. He proceeded to claim that all those who are in nursing homes only had five to six months of life expectancy and that almost no one in one of these homes is at a point to vote.
