On Friday, thousands of Wisconsinites gathered outside the state capitol to protest Democratic Gov. Tony Ever's extension of the state's stay-at-home order to May 26. That same day, Wisconsin reported over 300 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the state's total to over 5,400 confirmed cases. The protest was planned, funded, and promoted in part by Wisconsin Republicans and other prominent conservatives, including economist Stephen Moore, a member of President Donald Trump's economic recovery task force, who told The Times an anonymous donor in Wisconsin will pay the legal fees for any protester who is arrested.
