Ahmad is a spokesperson with Listen to Wisconsin, the group driving the state’s “Uninstructed” campaign. She notes that a majority in the U.S. are opposed to Israel’s attack on Gaza. Gallup recently found: “Americans now oppose the campaign by a solid margin.”

In These Times magazine reports in: “‘This Is a Movement of Hope’: Wisconsin’s Uninstructed Campaign Has Momentum” that organizers with the campaign say the primary will send President Joe Biden an “unequivocal message from the Midwest” that “if he wants to beat Trump, he must act immediately to end the genocide in Gaza. … Wisconsin may be the most pivotal swing state in the country, and Biden only beat Trump by the narrowest of margins there in 2020 – a little more than 20,000 votes, or just over 0.6 percent. And according to some recent polls, the incumbent is currently trailing (by anywhere from 2 percent to 6 percent) as he is losing support from voters – including younger voters – who care about the mass killings.”

State Representative Francesa Hong drafted a letter signed by numerous lawmakers in Wisconsin, stating, “We have an undeniable responsibility to stand with the Palestinian people in loving solidarity and demand an end to military aid to Israel and ensure the taxpayers are no longer complicit in a genocide that is funded by our government.”
