Todd Kolosso will be on the ballot for Democrats

While some in the Cheddarsphere have reported incumbent Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner will not have a Democratic opponent this fall due to the Democratic candidate, Todd Kolosso, having failed to gather enough signatures to get on the ballot, I’ve confirmed that Kolosso will in fact be on the ballot in the 5th Congressional District as Rep. Sensenbrenner’s Democratic opponent this fall.

While it initially appeared Kolosso had failed to gather enough signatures to get on the ballot, having collected only 984 valid signatures (1,000 are required to get on the ballot), a source inside Kolosso’ campaign confirmed the campaign had a number of signatures thrown out on the preliminary review, but that the campaign has submitted the affidavits of correction necessary to give Kolosso’s campaign well over the 1,000 signatures required by law.

EDIT: According to the GAB website, as of Friday at 4:00 p.m., the Kolosso campaign had submitted 1,118 signatures, more than enough to ensure Kolosso will be on the ballot in the fall.

  1. So does that mean a candidate doesn’t really have to submit the necessary signatures on time as long as he can submit affidavits of correction to bring him up to the required number?

    1. Dean, it means a candidate must submit the necessary signatures, and then if corrections are necessary, follow the law in order to make the proper corrections. My understanding is Kolosso’s campaign originally submitted more than the 1,000 required; they just had to correct technical problems with some of the signatures.

  2. it would benefit the State of Wisconsin greatly if Kolosso would get a solid 51%

    1. You’re delusional, for multiple parts of that statement. Zach I’ll take that bet 33% max. There is no way he gets more than that, not in this climate

  3. Looks like John Heckenlively, on the other hand, may not make it, unless he submitted more corrected signatures between 4 PM and 5 PM.

    1. Heckenlively should be cleared up by Monday. It appears he has the appropriate number of corrections.

  4. Now the real work begins. Its time to get Todd Kolosso elected. Please take a moment to visit Todd’s website:

    or find him on Facebook (search on “Todd Kolosso”)

    and volunteer to bring this victory home.
