It looks like all of the back door dealings by Mary Burke and her friends on the inside, have been successful!
Winnebago County Exec Mark Harris announced this morning he will not run for guv next year.
Would he have been the best candidate? I have no idea and now we will never know. The party choked him out of the race before anyone had a chance to find out.
Looks like everyone is clearing the way for Mary Burke to be the next victim of the Scott Walker political machine.
“If (Burke) were to run she’d be an instant frontrunner and an exceedingly difficult opponent for Scott Walker,” Tate said, adding that she has put in more work than other potential candidates by traveling the state talking with local activists, business leaders and voters.Can you name me one person who she has "talked too" that is not a party insider? Interview with local press? a voting record to be proud of?
My suggestion to you and everyone else in WI. If her path is to only talk to party insiders to push everyone else out of the race, then she does not need you to win. I would highly suggest that you hold all donations, or money that you had planned on giving the democratic party in protest of your voice not being heard.
I would suggest you save your donations to give to a local candidate of your choice, or save it because when Scott Walker gets elected again, you will need it!
Apparently their new 72 county strategy, means the democrats will now follow the republicans lead and pick all candidates for us. I don't remember the choosing of the candidates being on the platform of the Democratic Party Platform.
