In a recent press release, likely Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dick Leinenkugel cited his background and credentials as a reason why he’s considering running against Sen. Russ Feingold:
“I am a father, a husband, a Catholic, a patriot and a conservative. I have been a private sector business person for nearly 25 years after serving four years as a Marine Corps’ officer.
What Dick Leinenkugel forgot to mention among all his credentials and experiences was the 18 months he spent serving as Secretary of Commerce under Democratic governor Jim Doyle. What’s more, I saw no mention in his press release of the long list of accomplishments Leinenkugel had during his time as Commerce secretary.
