The Democrat of the day today is Joel Gratz!
Joel Gratz is head of the Assembly Democratic Campaign Committee. Gratz was charged with recruiting candidates and turning the assembly blue! Gratz also runs a polling & campaign services company(how convenient). Even though I do not own a polling and campaign service company, I am pretty sure when you let 25 of 99 seats go unchallenged, that's 25 seats you can not win.
The son of a lobbyist, who has been in this position since 2011 has a passion for
My passion throughout my career has always been most focused on the importance of democratic majorities in the legislature.You do the math.
Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of his work.
In the 47th Assembly district, Gratz successfully challenged and was able to get a Green party candidate kicked off the ballot to allow Robb Kahl to run unopposed!
In the 33rd Assembly district, Steve nASS's old seat, Gratz left that seat completely unchallenged. The candidate there sure has some great ideas:

Bill Lurvey: I differ with leadership on right to work. I would be interested in passing a bill to make Wisconsin a right-to-work state.
Good job Joel, keep up the great work, Robin Vos appreciates it!
