Republican state treasurer candidate Jill Millies did not vote in April to keep the office she seeks to run despite saying otherwise in a recent interview, records show.

In fact, Millies didn't vote at all in the April 3 election.

The discovery comes as Millies' GOP opponent, Travis Hartwig, called on Millies to drop out of the race ahead of Tuesday's primary, saying she displayed "extreme liberal values" in a recent survey when discussing abortion and gun control. 

Millies in July told USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin that she voted to keep the state treasurer's office because it can prevent wasteful spending and corruption. But records showMillies did not sign in to vote for the April 3 election in the Town of Vernon where she lives, and Town of Vernon Clerk Karen Schuh said Millies did not vote in the election.
