Glen Brower has momentum. Not only did he outraise Rep. Mark Honadel, the incumbent in Wisconsin’s 21st Assembly District, for the month of June, but now he’s also received the endorsements of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), as well as Democratic State Senator Jeff Plale, whose district roughly overlaps the 21st Assembly District. These endorsements are in addition to endorsements Brower has already received from Assistant Assembly Minority Leader Jon Richards, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), and Progressive Majority Wisconsin.
Now obviously I’ve not been keeping close tabs on Rep. Honadel’s campaign, but a quick look at his campaign’s website shows just one lonely endorsement from Wisconsin Right to Life. Now sure, it’s early, and Rep. Honadel does have the advantage of being an incumbent, but in the bigger picture, it’s obvious one candidate has momentum and the other doesn’t, and Rep. Honadel can’t like his chances if he continues to tread water in a year that looks to heavily favor Democrats.
