Wisconsin Democratic debate focuses on attacking governor
By Brendan O'Brien | Reuters 19 hrs ago
MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - Democratic candidates vying for a shot at ousting Governor Scott Walker from office in a June recall election aimed their attacks at the Republican incumbent rather than each other during a debate on Friday.
"This state has been at war for the last 16 months," said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, the frontrunner in the primary to select a Democratic candidate to oppose Walker.
"I will end the civil war in the state of Wisconsin," said Barrett. "I will restore trust in the governor's office and heal the wounds that have deeply divided the state."

FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
So, have the Wisconsin Soviet issued their next Five Year Plan?
Democrats just get meaner and nastier. Keep pushing them til they break.
Those who have voted to obtain a livelihood from the state treasury, vs, those who produce goods and services thru private enterprise.
Cops, teachers, firefighters, DMV workers, DNR staff, the countless social workers fed a staple diet by the court and legal systems, etc..........demand that those who pay their wages thru taxes and fees are not permitted to pay less or have a say.
They are at war with the voters who threw out a Democrat United States Senator by 47% to 52%, a Democrat Governor by 48% to 52%, and replaced a Democrat 18-14 Senate with a Republican 19-15 Senate, and a Democrat 50-45 Assembly with a Republican 60-38 Assembly.
The question is whether the people of Wisconsin can hold the line on the Democrat war?
What Barrett really means is “I will restore the ability for the teacher’s union to be the sole-source, no-bid provider of medical insurance for teachers at the price of $25,000 per year per teacher, thus turning a profit of $10,000 per year per teacher, which they will then use to keep getting me reelected”.
Baloney. Barrett won’t win.
