Wisconsin Primary Results
Very good, factual, non-opinionated account of yesterday's Wisconsin primaries.
Moore poised to be state's first black representative
This is phenomenal news, especially the turnout numbers. ("The Democratic primary drew about three times as many voters as the GOP contest.") This is going to have them spinning.
And does this sound like a familiar tactic?
Meanwhile, [ed. Republican loser] Hoze won a speaking slot last month at the GOP national convention, following endorsements from House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) and some prominent Wisconsin Republicans.As expected, Tammy Baldwin will be up against Dave Magnum, who owns every broadcast outlet in the Beloit area through Magnum Broadcasting. I don't think it will be a close race, but if you can broadcast yourself 24/7 maybe you can brainwash enough people. Luckily, I hear Air America has just opened up shop in Madison (also Tammy's district), which should help. Are you listening Al, Janeane? Get her on the air early and often.
Hoze's strategy depended on uniting black voters with Republicans to forge a winning coalition [ed. ha ha ha ha ha]. His presence in the race led to concern that he would draw votes away from Moore in the primary, preventing her from defeating Flynn and Carpenter.
But most audiences at candidate forums never got to hear Hoze. He skipped most of the forums and focused on solo speaking engagements at churches.
