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.

Is it really Mike Tate’s fault Democrats aren’t running in all 99 Assembly races?

Over at Cognitive Dissidence, Jeff Simpson wants to blame Democratic Party Chair Mike Tate for the fact that Democrats did not field candidates in 26 of the 99 Assembly seats up for reelection later this year.

It’s Time for Brett Hulsey to Fold Up His Tent

I thought he’d just be a little bit of a side show for a week and everyone would just forget about him. But he’s turned into a first class clown and it’s time he folded his tent and just went home. We certainly don’t need the distraction.

From Mike Tate, chair of the Democratic Party [...]

Lessons from the Old Dominion’s Gubernatorial Election

The big news out of Virginia today is Virginia is experiencing “blue shift.” A state that was once reliably red has become increasingly competitive for the Democratic Party. Part of it is because the northern part (closest to D.C.) is becoming very blue, but part of it is because the GOP still rewards candidates who [...]

Senator Vinehout versus Mike Tate

At this point in the 2014 campaign, I am firmly in the Senator Vinehout for Governor camp. And despite that I haven’t had any issue with Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate…until now.

The conventional wisdom is it is going to take some serious money to defeat Governor Walker in 2014. And the fact [...]
