MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Donald Trump’s Wisconsin campaign is issuing reaction to the second presidential debate from “Wisconsin leaders.”

But the press release sent minutes after the debate ended Sunday had reaction only from Trump’s state director and Van Mobley, the village president of Thiensville.

Notably absent in the campaign’s release was any reaction from the state’s top Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Ron Johnson.

None of them issued public statements in the minutes after the debate ended. Walker was also silent on Twitter, posting messages about the Green Bay Packers game but not the debate.

Ryan, Walker and Johnson all support Trump but they all denounced crude comments Trump made about women that came to light on Friday.
