For What Its Worth, Here are some of my endorsements:
I do not endorse, but I voted for Bret Hulsey as a protest vote to let the powers that be know that how they have handled this race is wrong, damaging in the short term and destructive in the long term. Do I want Scott Walker to win again? Absolutely not! Do I think Brett Hulsey would be a better Governor than Scott Walker - By leaps and bounds yes!
I do endorse Mary Jo Walters!! I think the work she has done gathering signatures, engaging people and talking actual issues should be rewarded. I appreciate what John Lehman has done in the past but his time has past. When he ducked a debate he showed me his time has come and gone.
The 63rd Assembly district -
Bryn Biemeck - Anytime you have a chance to knock Robin Vos from an elected position you need to take it. Redistricting has made it almost impossible in many seats for the opposing party to make a difference. With no real Democratic race on the ballot(I dont care who wins the AG, they are all head and shoulders better than JBVH or the his little twin replacement), now is your chance to show up on Tuesday and make a huge difference in the state of WI politics.
In an off year primary, you can make a difference here!!
Senate District 21 -
Jonathan Steitz - Triple dipper and former senate loser, Van Wanggaard, was being rewarded by the republican party for turning on the union he belonged to his whole career by having a distrcit redrawn for him where he might be able to win. Then extremist Steitz stepped in to run and Van was screwed. He does not have the appeal to the moderates or the left and the far right is now behind Steitz who strong believes in secession. As the above race, you can make a difference here and watch the crazy Jonathan Steitz win and then all of the sane people in the district can get behind Randy Bryce who is a much much better candidate than both of them combined.
6th Congressional District:
Glenn Grothman. Here is another race that l would love to see the local Democrats cross over and support Grothman. Democratic candidate Mark Harris will win in November anyway, and I am a firm believer that the bigger stage that Glenn Grothman has the better it is for everyone on the left!
Wisconsin 72nd Assembly district.
Scott Krug has to go! He really really has to go. Dana Duncan is the one to send him packing and represent the 72nd Assembly District like it should be represented - intelligently! First he has to win the Democratic primary against a long time party machine backed candidate. Please help him get through the primary and lets go about beating Scott Krug.
Senate District 17:
This is a race where every democratic vote will matter. There is long time local resident Ernie Wittwer running against political insider Pat Bomhack. Bohmack will be more of the same vanilla, center right,m kowtow to the republican candidate that we have way too much of in Madison, WI. Wittwer is the one to keep the tradition of independent thought, well spoken and carefully considered positions that District 17 is used to. I recommend Wittwer!
