Here’s Rowan Viva, one of the challengers to incumbent Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate singing her own praises on Facebook on May 2 (emphasis added):
Maybe we should all rally around the leading challenger, you know . . . the hyper-intelligent and politically savvy capitol occupier with the killer turnaround plan who’s currently running a beast statewide campaign with exactly ZERO resources!
Shortly thereafter, Viva showed just how politically savvy she is with this Facebook update:
Here I’ve been running this great positive campaign when I get a mailer from the state party explaining that convention will be held in Waukesha County this year because THAT represents the direction the party is going in.
Someone should explain to Rowan Viva that if the Democratic Party of Wisconsin wants to be able to win statewide elections, it’s going to have to find votes wherever it can, as opposed to simply relying on turnout in Milwaukee and Dane Counties. Any remotely politically savvy Democrat should understand that the goal should be to grow the electoral map for Democrats, not shrink it, but that point seems to be lost on Rowan “politically savvy” Viva.
Here are some screencaps of Viva’s Facebook status updates:
