So if you think Mike Tate has to go as DPW Chair, then who’s your choice to replace him?

So there’s been a lot of talk about why Mike Tate needs to “get out of Dodge” as Chairman of the DPW, but what I’d like to hear from you all is who you’d choose to replace him, along with some reasons why.

Discuss.

John Nichols: Wisconsin Democratic Party needs to reconsider itself

This is spot-on. To renew itself now, the party must recognize how it broke through in the past.

First, the Wisconsin Democrats of the 1940s and 1950s welcomed outsiders and moved them quickly into the forefront of the party. Consider this notion: What if, in 2014, the Democratic Party had nominated retiring Republican Sen. Dale […]

What has Mike Tate done in four years to earn his $105,717 per year salary?

In response to criticisms I’ve made of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin leadership in the wake of Tuesday’s awful election results, one commenter noted the “the state party chair is just not a very important position.”

If that is in fact the case (which I’m sure many party establishment apologists will argue it is), then […]

Two post-election predictions

Now that Democrats in Wisconsin have suffered another bloodbath election, I expect calls for Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate to resign to proliferate. In fact, a quick look at my Facebook feed shows more than a few calls for Tate to resign.

In response, I predict the same Democratic Party insiders who think […]

Democratic Party of Wisconsin sends out mailer highlighting Amy Sue Vruwink’s strong relationship with Scott Walker

For the love of God….really?!?!? It’s odd enough to see a mailer for a veteran Democratic legislator that highlights her strong relationship with Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

“Governor Scott Walker trusts Amy Sue Vruwink on agricultural issues,” says the recent flier promoting the Milladore Democrat. “Governor Scott Walker tried to have her as one of […]

What were the “unusual circumstances” that led to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin endorsing John Lehman in a contested primary

According to this report by Dan Bice of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, last month members of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s Administrative Committee (30 of whom are Democratic party insiders) voted to endorse state Sen. John Lehman, a Racine Democrat, for lieutenant governor,despite the fact that Madison activist Mary Jo Walters had also registered to […]

Does Frank Lasee live outside the district he serves?

According to a report by WBAY, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin is filing a complaint with the Government Accountability Board alleging Republican State Senator Frank Lasee lives outside the district he represents. Action 2 News has learned the Democratic Party of Wisconsin (DPW) is filing a complaint with the Government Accountability Board (GAB), accusing Republican […]

What Mark Harris’ run for Congress could say about Wisconsin’s Dem Party leadership

This is an interesting read (emphasis added). Winnebago County functions as a microcosm of the state, narrowly divided with the potential to swing between elections. In the 2012 recall election, 56% of Winnebago voters picked Walker. Yet, Obama carried the county with 51% of the vote later that year.

That’s a seven-point swing from June […]

Democratic Party of Wisconsin: damned if they do, damned if they don’t

Over at The Prairie Badger, Aaron Camp is wondering why the Democratic Party of Wisconsin (DPW) hasn’t issued a press release acknowledging that Dan Bohrod is running for State Treasurer.

Dan Bohrod, a budget analyst for the City of Madison who attempted a primary challenge to then-Democratic Wisconsin State Treasurer Dawn Marie Sass in 2010, […]

WHY LATINOS NEED TO REGISTER AND VOTE

There has been some press lately about Governor Walker’s attempts to reach out to Hispanic voters…and the significance of the first Republican Latina being elected to the state legislature…all despite the fact the Republican sponsored Voter ID bills will disenfranchise Latino voters as well as African Americans and other minorities. But in my inbox tonight, […]
