As noted by xoff over at Uppity Wisconsin and Cindy Kilkenny at Fairly Conservative, Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker has gone negative in a big way in the weeks leading up to the September 14 partisan primary election, sending out a mailer attacking his opponent, Mark Neumann, for voting for “$9 billion in pork-barrel spending” including funding for the infamous “Bridge to Nowhere”. The mailer goes on to tied Neumann to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who also voted for the bill cited by the Walker attack ad.
Here’s a copy of the mailing:
As I’ve said over at Fairly Conservative and elsewhere, Scott Walker’s gubernatorial campaign is clearly floundering. If you’re ahead in a race by as much as Walker’s campaign wants folks to believe, then why do you need to resort to a nasty attack mailer only two weeks before the election? As xoff has written over at Uppity Wisconsin Scott Walker needs to win the Republican gubernatorial primary by a big margin, given the high expectations placed on his campaign given his status as the candidate endorsed by the Republican establishment in Wisconsin.
