The website proclaims: “The Patriot Party of Wisconsin is now forming its statewide leadership committee and looking for volunteers who would like to be involved. This is guaranteed to be a massive movement, and certainly will be historical. Join the history books with us!” Under upcoming events the party, which mentions no members or leaders by name, lists a “MAGA Fundraising Campout and Music Festival” for summer 2021.
