This weekend Democrats elected Martha Laning as the new Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
As has been noted here and elsewhere, the race to succeed former Chair Mike Tate was not without negative and attacks, with yours truly having been at the center of some of those attacks. As I’ve noted here and elsewhere, I regret my role in the negativity of the DPW Chair race, especially in the last few weeks of the race. That being said, it’s time to move forward.
Now that the Democratic Party of Wisconsin has chosen its new figurehead, it’s time for Wisconsin’s Democrats to work to heal the rifts we created between ourselves in the months and weeks leading up to the 2015 convention. What’s more, we all need to start looking forward to 2016, because we Democrats have a huge undertaking ahead of ourselves if we’re going to start reversing the damage Republicans have done to our fair state.
We’re all going to need to be on the same page if we’re going to beat Republicans at the ballot box, and I’m willing to do my part – are you?
