In an opinion piece published yesterday, former U.S. Rep. Dave Obey shared his view that the problems that led to the lackluster election results here in Wisconsin on November 4th were more a product of poor messaging on the part of the national Democratic Party, and not because of the failures of Mike Tate, chairman […]
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.
What follows is a guest blog by Graeme Zielinski, former Communications Director for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. I’ve seen that there are some knives out for Mike Tate.
I just worked on the Illinois governor’s race, where we were wiped off the face of the earth in a PLUS-EIGHT DEMOCRATIC STATE by the same […]
Predictably, in the wake of the drubbing Dems took on Tuesday night, calls for Mike Tate’s head to be put on a spike next to the bust of Fighting Bob La Follette in the Capitol rotunda have been plentiful. And while I’m no Mike Tate fan, something about the chorus of disapproval smacks of fish, […]
UPDATE: I have received information that in addition to receiving a call from Doug Haeffle of the ADCC on Thursday morning, Chris Miller was contacted by Democratic State Reps. Andy Jorgensen and Steve Doyle after Miller sent out an email Wednesday thanking his supporters.

In response, I predict the same Democratic Party insiders who think […]
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 […]
The left leaning Cheddarsphere and social media in Wisconsin are all a twitter after Mike Tate released his statement that Wisconsin voters don’t care about the allegations of a Walker controlled ” criminal scheme “contained in the John Doe II document dump. People are outraged that Tate would say such a thing, but the real […]
According to a freport by Gilman Halsted of Wisconsin Public Radio, Wisconsin Democratic Party Chair Mike Tate says Wisconsin voters just don’t care that Gov. Scott Walker has been alleged to have been at the center of a “criminal scheme” to circumvent our state’s election laws.
As “proof” of his assertion, Tate cited super-scientific canvassing […]
