Representative Howard Marklein has decided he has had enough of Dale Schultz's moderation and has announced his intention to primary Schultz!
SPRING GREEN…Representative Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green) announced his candidacy for Wisconsin’s 17th State Senate District today. Marklein, a CPA and Certified Fraud Examiner, is currently serving his second term as State Representative for the 51st Assembly District in southwestern WisconsinMarklein, who vastly outspent his opponent, in a heavily gerrymandered district and still only won by 1000 votes has decided that moderation must be punished and he is the one person with a mandate to do it.
The 17th Senate District is currently held by Senator Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center). Schultz, a long-time incumbent, has been in office since 1982. Senator Schultz’s current four year term is up in November 2014. Schultz has not yet announced his re-election plans.
“I am extremely humbled by the support and encouragement I’ve received from supporters to run for the Senate. I am announcing my campaign to ensure that we are able to continue to build on the good work we have done,” Marklein said. “After growing up on a dairy farm in the district, I believe I will bring a fresh, common-sense perspective to the Senate. As a CPA with extensive private sector experience, I will continue to advance the belief that government’s role is to provide the tools private businesses need to grow, rather than create road blocks to economic growth. I will also continue to advocate for policies that benefit our communities by allowing the private sector to create good jobs for our hard working people.”
Dissent, free thinking, alternate opinions, rational discussion and reaching across the aisle will NOT be tolerated in 2013 Wisconsin. Brad Courtney, Howard Marklein, Robin Vos, Scott Fitzgerald, Scott Walker and the rest of the party have decided that they have had enough of Dale Schultz thinking for himself. We are 44th and sinking in jobs created, public education is being attacked and our budget is being "balanced" by going deeper in debt than ever! To the republicans, this constitutes "working".
Dale Schulz has seen first hand the massive fail and has tried to hit the brakes during the Walker administration's race to the bottom, and that is unacceptable.
And Ladies and gentlemen, that is your 2013 Wisconsin republican party!
