I would like to thank the candidates for Chair of the DPW who took the time out of their very busy schedules to answer the Blogging Blue 9 question email interview. I hope our Democratic readers all took the time the read them so they can make an educated choice at the convention this weekend.
We are blessed with very strong candidates this year who all could lead the state party effectively. And I would like to thank Martha Laning in particular for her vision and efforts to move the party into the 21st Century political climate!
But I see 2018 as a particularly important inflection point in both national and state politics. We have an opportunity to replace Governor Scott Walker and House Speaker Paul Ryan but haven’t had any viable candidates announce a campaign yet. And we need to hold our US Senate seat and re-elect Senator Tammy Baldwin to another term. And despite a gerrymandered red Wisconsin we need to field other candidates who are capable of taking on Republicans across the state and hold them accountable for the nonsense going on in Washington DC and Madison WI. We can’t wait until 2020 when President Trump is up for re-election himself.
So I am endorsing a very strong candidate for party chair…someone who is a current elected official…who is an effective fundraiser…effective organizer…and who has done kind of thing before…Glendale Mayor Bryan Kennedy.
