Not sure how I missed this, but last month Democratic State Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson endorsed the candidacy of Pat Bomhack in the race to succeed retiring State Sen. Dale Schultz, despite the fact that Bomhack isn’t the only Democrat running to succeed Sen. Schultz.
Democrat Ernie Wittwer jumped into the race last October, but his fund raising lagged Republican candidate Howard Marklein. About a week ago, Democrat Pat Bomhack decided he would run. Democratic Minority Leader Chris Larson, D-Milwaukee, says Bomhack is the better candidate, saying he has the work ethic and the attitude that will help him win.
While I can understand the desire of the Democratic Party bosses to anoint their preferred candidate in the race in the 17th State Senate district, it’s disappointing to see that once again the Democratic Party bosses seem to think they know better than Democratic voters when it comes to choosing which Democrat they want in the general election.
