With just five days to go before the Wisconsin GOP Senate primary, you’d think voters would have all the information they’d need to make an informed choice. You’d be wrong. Believe it or not, Eric Hovde has yet to state his stance on women’s rights. On Thursday afternoon, legislators called him out on it.
Yesterday the Tea Party Express endorsed former Congressman Mark Neumann as that group’s preferred candidate in the Republican U.S. Senate primary. Along with the endorsement, the Tea Party Express has indicated it will run television ads on behalf of Neumann starting early next week.
No doubt the extremists from the Tea Party Express were drawn [...]
I know I’m a few days slow on the uptake, but there’s a new Rasmussen poll out regarding the U.S. Senate race here in Wisconsin, and it’s got a whole lotta bad news for the Republican U.S. Senate candidates.
According to the poll, Baldwin has a lead over each of the four Republican U.S. Senate [...]
Ultra conservative voters are ditching Eric Hovde in favor of Mark Neumann in the GOP race for U.S. Senate, it seems. According to a recent poll by Public Policy Polling, ”The momentum in this contest is on Neumann’s side. He’s gained 10 points over the last month to go from 15% to 25%. His strength [...]
Eric Hovde, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, released radio ads yesterday touting his “pro-life credentials.” He previously said he is 100% pro-life, meaning he does not support any exceptions on abortion, not even for rape, incest or the life/health of the mother.

While many of us have been laser-focused on the upcoming recall election, Senator Ron Johnson has been busy making bizarre statements. But Johnson is not the only Republican making absurd declarations. Tommy Thompson, Eric Hovde, and Mark Neumann have all been hard at work trying to out-Tea-Party one another in the race for U.S. Senate. [...]
I love this… Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald of Horicon took the most votes at the Republican Party’s state convention here, but fell short of the 60% needed to secure the endorsement. It was a surprisingly strong showing for Fitzgerald, who has lagged in fundraising and polling.
Thompson, elected governor four times, was knocked off [...]
Last week I wrote a little about the fundraising numbers for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin and one of her Republican counterparts, extreme conservative businessman Mark Neumann.

One candidate I neglected to mention is Washington, D.C. rich guy Eric Hovde (pictured, left), who has carpetbagged back to [...]
On Tuesday the campaign of far-right extremist Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark Neumann announced it had raised $650,000 from over 9,000 contributions in the first quarter of 2012. Chip Englander, Neumann’s campaign manager, also said Neumann’s 17,000 supporters are more than anyone else in the Senate race.
However, a tweet from Democratic U.S. Senate [...]
With Unites States Senator Herb Kohl deciding not to run for re-election, that left an opening for new players in both parties to step up and try and capture this seat.
