As we get closer to election day and the chance to get our state back on the right track, it is time to showcase some more talent that we need to send to Madison.
We will start out in Hayward, WI where Elizabeth Riley is running for the 87th Assembly seat against Jimmy Boy Edming. Jimmy boy is known for one thing, being the first person in WI to endorse The Donald. Yes THAT Donald,and the reason he gives is brilliant (in a Sarah Palinesque kind of way).
Mr. Edming said he hasn’t been in touch with anyone from the Trump campaign and doesn’t have any plans to attend any presidential campaign events. He’s not looking for a job in Washington, though he said “if a good promotion came along, I’d take a look at it.”
He said the news Tuesday that that Mr. Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was charged with battery for an incident with a reporter only made Mr. Trump more appealing.
“I had one gal around here saying, ‘He’s attacking the women and he’s attacking all this,’ and I said, ‘You’re listening to the malarkey from the opposition,’” Mr. Edming said. “I think he’s going to make it.”
Mr. Edming said his position is common in his part of the state.
“I’ve talked to a kazillion people here in the last two to three weeks,” he said. “The more and more that they attack Trump, the more people are going to vote for him.”
