Neumann touts his debate win, but did he really win?

Found in my email inbox:

Mark Neumann won today’s debate with Scott Walker at the Wisconsin State Fair! The debate was aired on radio 620 WTMJ and hosted by Jeff Wagner. It proved three important points, heading into these final weeks before the September 14 primary.

  1. Mark Neumann once again outlined his detailed conservative plan for Wisconsin. Mark has a record as a principled conservative leader and has a plan to cut government spending by over $2 billion and reduce taxes by 24% over eight years to create 300,000 jobs. But, Mark’s plan goes further and ends the good old boy system with ideas like term limits to get rid of the career politicians. His plan will bring us back to Constitutional government. Mark has fought against ObamaCare – delivering over 25,000 anti-ObamaCare petitions to Governor Doyle – and has always been in favor of Arizona’s immigration law. Mark is also opposed to Doyle’s stimulus train and will immediately stop this project dead in its tracks.
  2. Mark shined because we need someone who’s run a business for 26 years – not another career politician. His answers were direct, detailed, and avoided the sloganeering that’s become so common place from career politicians. Mark Neumann has consistently provided detailed plans and real solutions to the problems Wisconsin faces, while career politicians spout all the same old cliches and rhetoric.
    • Mark has a plan to cut government spending by $2 billion
    • Mark has a plan to bring 300,000 jobs to Wisconsin
    • Mark has a plan for the largest tax cut in Wisconsin history
    • Mark has a plan to make Wisconsin children the best-educated in the world
  3. Mark has pledged to be the most open and accessible governor in Wisconsin’s history – and it showed in this debate and throughout the campaign. Career politicians have made a mess of government in part because they’re too often inaccessible and walled from public opinion. Debates – regardless of who you support – are a good thing because it gives the people an opportunity to hear out both candidates and make their own decision.

    That’s why Mark has conducted 16 town halls across Wisconsin and will continue holding them throughout the campaign. That’s why Mark reads and responds to his 54,000 Facebook Fans—the most of any Republican candidate for Governor in the country – to stay accessible to the people. Both candidates are good men, and more debates are good for democracy.

Today’s debate win was more exciting news for the campaign! The campaign is heading in to the final weeks and is poised to win, come November. So join us, and let’s take back Wisconsin.

I haven’t had an opportunity to hear the debate between Mark Neumann and Scott Walker, but I’d love to hear the opinions of those who have. Who really won yesterday’s debate, Scott Walker or Mark Neumann?

  1. I just blogged some of my observations from the debate.

    The short version: No, I don’t think that he won at all. Walker didn’t do anything special in it but he didn’t have to. Most observers came away with the idea that they agree on most things. That is a fine outcome for Walker but Neumann (as the insurgent) needed to provide as many aggressively stark contrasts as possible. He had several opportunities but he failed to do it in most of them.

  2. Walker, at least to most of the people I talked to today at the West Bend TEA Party. Did I mention there where nearly 5,000 people in attendance? Yep all the way out in Washington Cty. November IS coming!

  3. Almost as many as showed up in Madison for the protection of marriage equality. November is coming!

    1. Like I said before, I will be happy to console you guys on Nov 3rd. The momentum is with the GOP this time around. Read history and pay attention to what is going on out there. Sorry, it is not with the liberal agenda. America is saying NO.

  4. Wow. Washington County. The most stupidly Republican county in Wisconsin. That tells me….nothing.

    When anyone outside of suburban Milwaukee cares enough about Walker to have more than 1,000 people show up and the majority aren’t GOP activists, then I care. And I think you’ll be waiting for that.

    On the other subject, if Neumann soft-sells this and doesn’t confront Walker on his silliness, Neumann can’t win. But if Neumann DOESN’T bring it up, it’ll mean Walker will get destroyed once his ridiculous positions come up in the general election, and will massively hurt GOP chances throughout the state (especially in the races for legislative control). Walker’s proving to be quite the catch-22 for the state GOP, now that they hitched their wagon to him, isn’t he?

    1. Jake you missed my point entirely. 5000 were not out to see just Walker yesterday. 5000 were out supporting the conservative message Rallying like we have month after month now by the thousands at a time. Have you EVER seen anything like this before in political history? And the answer is NO. Not this big and not with this continuing and building momentum.

      1. No, nothing like that. Unless you count the tens and hundreds of thousands of people that showed up at Obama rallies.
