Conservative candidates in Wisconsin and Michigan, where the GOP presidential nomination race is still underway, have come out in support and encouraged their supporters to “do your part” in the process.
The candidates have been vocal about the need to protect the constitutional rights of all Americans and the right to free speech, according to the Associated Press.
“We are in the fight to preserve our fundamental freedoms and liberties,” former Republican Wisconsin Gov.
Scott Walker said in a statement.
“We are all united in defending our fundamental liberties.
We cannot allow our freedoms to be taken away.”
Former Florida Gov.
Jeb Bush echoed Walker’s message, saying the GOP should “do our part” to protect its principles and protect its candidates.
“The American people want us to protect our rights,” Bush said.
“I believe it’s important that we do our part.
We have a duty to defend our constitutional rights and protect our candidates and our principles.”
In Iowa, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said that he was proud of the “unstoppable” movement that has taken place against him.
He said he was ready to fight the Trump campaign for the presidency.
“They’re a very powerful and well-funded group,” Trump said.
Trump said he has already spent $10 million in ads against the real estate mogul.
“They’re gonna come after us in a very, very, negative way.”
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is a Trump supporter, called on his supporters to show “discipline” by “not standing in line” at polling places.
“I think that the way to win this is to not stand in line,” Giuliani said in an interview with Fox News.
“The American citizenry has no interest in people standing in lines.
It’s the voter turnout that’s the issue.
I think that’s why I’m very proud of my campaign and the way I’ve raised money and the people have responded to that.”
Former Ohio Gov.
John Kasich, a Trump backer, also said he would fight for the Republican nomination.
“If we are going to win, we’re going to have to fight hard, and if we’re not going to fight, then we are not going,” Kasich said.
“This is a huge game,” he said.
“[It] has never been a more important election than right now.”
Former Arizona Gov.
Jan Brewer, a former Trump supporter who has been critical of him, called the Trump phenomenon a “cancer.”
“He’s not the only one, it’s a problem,” Brewer said.
The Democratic candidates are also stepping up their attacks on Trump.
New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, a Democrat, said that Trump is not a conservative.
“It is absolutely false and insulting to say that Donald Trump is conservative.
He is not,” Booker said in remarks published by The New York Times.
Booker has made it clear he will not support Trump if he is the nominee.
“That’s just a lie, and I’ve got nothing to hide,” he added.
Former Sen. Joe Biden, a Biden supporter, also called Trump a “liar” and a “con man.”
“I believe that he is a con man, a fraud,” Biden said.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., called on her supporters to stand up to Trump.
“He has never cared about working Americans,” Warren said.
The Massachusetts senator, who also is running for president, said she will “stand up for the right of all people to vote” and urged supporters to support her.
Warren, a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, has said she plans to support the Democratic presidential candidates who are the “most progressive” of the four Democrats on the ticket.
