1 in 5 Wisconsin voters are still undecided about who they will vote for in tomorrow's election.A new poll reveals that even though the election is TOMORROW an unusual amount of voters are still undecided as to who they are going to vote for. 1 in 5 voters is still searching for a candidate to vote for...That makes our push to keep our 'Tea Party Supports Mark Neumann' ad running through election day critically important..We need to stay in front of these undecided voters as they make up their mind who to vote for - these are the voters that will decides the winner of TOMORROW'S election.
Jim DeMint, Mark Levin and Rand Paul all have endorsed conservative Mark Neumann for U.S. Senate.
**Add your name to a growing list and help us raise the $16,500 we still need to raise!**.Conservative leaders across the country are supporting Tea Party Express endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Mark Neumann. Read what these conservative leaders had to say about Mark:.We're endorsing Mark Neumann because he has the strongest conservative record in the field, he has the support of the grassroots, and he's in the best position to win this race for freedom-loving Americans.- U.S. Senator Jim DeMint"Mark Neumann has actually walked the walk -- he is tough as nails and we know we can rely on him because he has a proven track record."- U.S. Senator Rand Paul"Itd be my honor to endorse you as well because I think youre the most solid conservative of the bunch who is running and was conservative before it was cool in the House of Representatives."- Mark Levin.
Riding a wave of Tea Party support conservative Mark Neumann has caught the competition and is now only 3 points down!This is amazing considering that he was down as many as 10 points just one week ago..We are spending all our resources on this campaign and with so many important primaries back-to-back, our campaign account is running very low. Please help us fund the rest of this important campaign!
Much like Ted Cruz in Texas, Mark Neumann is the conservative Tea Party candidate taking on the establishment Republican candidates. The race is a dead-heat and we need your support to score another win for the Tea Party movement!.
Mark earned the support of the Tea Party Express, and Tea Party members from every corner of Wisconsin, because he is the only one with a plan that cuts spending, balances the budget, and repeals ObamaCare. He understands that we must get back to Constitutional principles in Washington. And, he is the one with the proven record of doing all this before..Mark Neumann speaking at one of our many Wisconsin rallies.Neumann understands the free market, job creation, and fiscal responsibility. We cannot continue down the path we are currently on; Neumanns experience and committed pro-growth solutions that enhance individual liberty and responsibility are exactly what we need in the next U.S. Senator from Wisconsin.
In 2012, we have an opportunity to take the U.S. Senate and remove the gavel from the hands of Harry Reid! In Wisconsin, we have the opportunity to send a TRUE fiscal conservative to the U.S. Senate one that will fight for the people and will not be bullied by the D.C. insiders and party elders. Lets take this opportunity by electing Mark Neumann to the U.S. Senate!
FreedonWorks for America has endorsed Hovde.
Oh yea, Dick Armey’s “tea party” group.
They addded “for America” to their name?
Are you on their mailing list?
They call me by my first name, and ask for money.
Matt Kibbe does a little dance after that.
Various groups will endorse different candidates, thanks for the heads up.
Our efforts are working and we are surging at just the right time!.
Many political experts and members of the media are predicting an upset in tomorrow's Wisconsin U.S. Senate primary. There is no doubt that it will be a very close race...We have reported that there is still a large amount of Wisconsin voters that are on the fence or are completely undecided as to who they will vote for.. That makes our push to keep our 'Tea Party Supports Mark Neumann' ad running through election day critically important..We need to stay in front of these undecided voters as they make up their mind who to vote for - these are the voters that will decides the winner of TOMORROW'S election..We need your help!
I am...but I automatically delete most of them. I'm not voting for Hovde because of anything Dick Army's "tea party" group has said to me. Of course "Various groups will endorse different candidates, thanks for the heads up." I think we're entering into a circular argument here.
Syncro’s a little testy — the Tea Party Express endorsed candidates have been losing to more conservative, more electable, less establishment challengers lately.
Fitzgerald is giving up his office win or lose.
And from my observation, posters on this topic seem a little looney for my tastes. Present company excluded of course.
I too am unable to decide. Although I could choose any of them against ms baldwin.
Anybody but Tommy. Just to refresh everyones memory, all this fighting among candidates in the primary is what led to candidate Romney.
Hovde or Fitzgerald.
NO TO NEUMANN !
Tea Party Express should have talked to more Wisconsin conservatives. Neumann ran a dirty campaign against Scott Walker and ticked off a lot of we conservatives. Tommy T is too old and we shouldn’t go through the effort to send him to DC and then do all the work again after his one term. Fitzgerald is a good conservative but isn’t well known and Baldwin will use his work on getting Act 10 passed to energize her liberal lesbian base. That leaves Hovde and that’s who I like. He has money, has business experience and will stop the move to big government.
agree, when i think of Tommy i think of the establishment which most of us are tired of, my wife & i will vote Fitzgerald but will support the winner.
btw, Syncro can only parrot and carpet bomb information from outside groups who have no clue about Wisconsin politics. RicocheT is correct. Neumann is dirty. In 2010 Neumann threatened to run a 3rd party general campaign to the LEFT of Scott Walker. He's not a conservative.
If Syncro advocates for a candidate in your state, be sure to vote for the other guy.
Oh that’s rich!
Got any more whole cloth?
Armey’s group may get it right sometimes, but he jumped on the tea party mainly to make money.
If he is your idea of an ideal tea party conservative, send him some money.
Sorry, but Neumann owns his own Solyndra...
Polls show that Neumann is within striking distance.Riding a wave of Tea Party support conservative Mark Neumann has caught the competition and is now only 3 points down! This is amazing considering that he was down as many as 10 points just one week ago..
Mark earned the support of the Tea Party Express, and Tea Party members from every corner of Wisconsin, because he is the only one with a plan that cuts spending, balances the budget, and repeals ObamaCare.

Yeah, like Mourdock and Cruz? That's pretty lately. And the Tea Party Express helped pull them both over the top.
Who were your candidates in those races?
Yea, I am pretty testy, spitter! Being attacked by "conservative" "tea party" tag teamers brings it out in me.
Let's not make this thread into a ridiculous sideshow like you and your tag team did to that one.
Syncro can only parrot and carpet bomb information from outside groups who have no clue about Wisconsin politics.
I traveled all over WI last week, and met with hundreds of Tea Partiers who were for Neumann.
One of them who co founded the WI 912 group had been for weeks going across the state and found support for Neumann everywhere.
Stop spreading misinformation on this thread, Sideshow.
If Syncro advocates for a candidate in your state, be sure to vote for the other guy.
Oh good advice. How clildish! Nice to see you would have campaigned against Cruz and Mourdock.
Thanks for the clarification, and I didn't think that was your reason.
No one should vote because of any group's endorsement, but should vett the candidates themselves of course.
Like promoting Jon Bruning in Nebraska (a mediocre establishment type) & Sarah Steelman in Missouri and bashing their opponents.
Not to mention the idiotic choices in 2010, nearly single-handedly pushing Sharron Angle to the nomination and guaranteeing Dirty Harry another term. What a disaster!
The group may be well intentioned but they are just not very well informed.
Thanks for you input!
I’m not going to legitimitize your “not very well informed” comments on this thread.
Post that comment on the thread in the smokey back room that you guys hijacked and I will tear it apart there.
TPX was in WI all last week, and talked to hundreds of WI conservatives.
Kirstin Lombard, co founder of WI 912, spoke at one of the events put on by tea partiers across the state.
She traveled the state as a Neumann supporter and found a lot of support for him across the state.
She is very good at explaining Neumann's positions vs the other candidates, and converted many to Neumann's side while talking to those that were formerly supporting others.
Thanks for your input!
I don't think he got 50 big ones from Obama like Solyndra did. Nor did he go bankrupt and rip off money from the government.
Neumann is a home builder that incorporates solar into the homes he builds.
Here is a comment about Neumann back a ways:
He decries the Obama stimulus but defends the solar tax credits installed under the Bush administration, which have benefited his solar-energy companies.
I’m having a very hard time figuring out who to vote for... Even though I’ve had a chance to talk with all the candidates one on one, I’m still stuck.
I’ve known Tommy for years. He’s not the most conservative, but he was pretty good. I actually like the idea that he won’t be a permanent senator due to his age.
Hovde talks a good game. I was in the room when he made his “sob story” comments. Unfortunately, he has little history.
Fitzgerald has great credentials, but gives me a Will Ferrell vibe.
Mark Neumann is clearly a conservative, but his negative ads against Walker and other candidates make me very wary. I don’t think he’s a bad guy and his congressional record is very solid.
I hate being in the position to make a choice in the polling place. I keep going between Hovde and Neumann with a bit of Tommy thrown in. Maybe I’m not a “real conservative,” but my first and foremost goal is keeping Tammy Baldwin out of the Senate.
I would definitely nix Thompson.
Here is some information that is pretty damning of his ideas:
Cultivating Green Tieranny: RootsMore on that from the WI 912 Project:

The first in-depth article in this series dealt with a significant but little-known Agenda 21-based agreement established in 1998 by Governor Tommy Thompson between the State of Wisconsin and the German state of Bavaria. That agreement would become a refining fire for dangerous ideas already percolating in Wisconsin. In 1999 those ideas would take more definitive shape in an elaborate proposal for the Green Tier program.
Did Governor Thompson know what he was signing? Remarks made by both Thompson and Schnappauf on the occasion of the MOU's signing make it nearly impossible to believe Thompson was anything but fully informed as to the content and nature of the agreement. Both men refer to the aims spelled out in the agreement. They refer to globalist aims and socialist approaches. In fact, Thompson asserted: "It's government's job to help others do what's right," thereby granting verbal as well as written consent to the agreement's purpose and signaling fully considered participation in its aims.Seems to me like the conservative thing to do is find out as much about each candidate as possible (which is what you are doing), then pull the lever.
Thanks for your input!

What were seeing in Wisconsin is the same thing weve seen in Missouri, Nebraska and across the country the proven conservative surging and winning, said Neumann campaign manager Chip Englander.
Living in Wisconsin, my wife and I have gotten numerous campaign calls and surveys asking who we planned to vote for. Our pat answer was that we were undecided. I refused to give the information they asked for. As the polls don’t open for another hour, I am still not sure but am leaning toward Neuman. Yep, I’m conservative.
Fitz is gonna come in last. If you don’t want TT you gotta go Hovde, his lack of experience aside.
"I'm not going to go out and attack other groups that's not what we should be focused on. I encourage people to go out and work for their candidate whoever their candidate may be," said Kremer.I encourage all input that is not filled with contentious rhetoric designed to be antagonistic and fills no useful purpose for the continuation of Conservativsm and TPM ideals.
Hopefully the Tea Party Express endorsed candidate will lose, as they did in Nebraska and Missouri.
Neumann is just a bad campaigner - he's responsible for putting Russ Feingold in the Senate - and has made himself unpopular with a large number of Wisconsin conservatives.
I can’t believe any Conservative Tea Party types would vote for Thompson, but some FR posters indicate they might.
He is a proven Globalist who is pushing for world wide socialism to be implemented it our country.
I strongly doubt that either Thompson or Neumann would win a runoff with either Hovde or Fitzgerald.
Thompson's time is past and he's not a great bet to be a conservative reformed in the Senate; Neumann blew his chance against Feingold and has spent the years since trying to get back into office and generally made himself into an annoyance while the rest of the party unified to achieve real reforms.
You wonder why some conservatives will vote for Thompson today? Because Neumann lost to a Marxist the last time he ran for Senate and they don't want to take the chance of that happening again with Tammy Baldwin.
Yes, it’s apparant you don’t like Neumann.
(I think he also caused global warming.)
But then you won’t be voting in this race, and neither will I
This could just as easily mean one in five voters are not telling strangers how they are voting in the election for fear of being tagged for leftist union thugery.
Go Tea Party!
LOL good point!
It never actually necessarily means undecided, it’s just that there are only 3 choices.
Eric Hovde 27
Tommy Thompson 25
Mark Neumann 24
Jeff Fitzgerald 15
As you can see, 9% is not 1 in 5.
Hovde has a big lead among voters who are very excited about the election, reflecting the energy FReepers on the ground have reported, which will probably translate into a narrow win today.
I'm thinking it will be something like:
It's coming down to the wire.
U.S. Senate race is too close to call!.We will fight until the polls close tonight.The U.S. Senate race in Wisconsin has shaped up to be nearly a 4-way tie and could be anyone's for the taking. The deciding factor will be which candidate was able to connect with the large amount of undecided voters in these last couple of days before the election and through election day today...There is no doubt that it will be a very close race and we need to campaign for Mark Neumann until the very end - we can't come up short!..
Milwaukee, Wis. A new Marquette Law School Poll finds former Governor Tommy Thompson holding a 28 percent to 20 percent lead over businessman Eric Hovdein next weeks Republican primary for U.S. Senate. Former Congressman Mark Neumann has the support of 18 percent and Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald 13 percent.Globalist Thompson went down, Hovde decreased, and Neumann and Fitzgerald went up.
A substantial 21 percent remain undecided. The race has tightened since the July 5-8 Marquette Law School Poll, which found Thompson with 35 percent , Hovde at 23 percent , Neumann at 10 percent and Fitzgerald at 6 percent. Twenty-five percent were undecided in the July poll.
Neumann increased the most.
I don't put much stock in polls because they vary widely and are usualy skewed for desired results, but there ya go.
You've avoided answering the question for nearly a week while carpet bombing your Neumann propaganda?
You've alluded to others conspiring against you. I think you and friendly moderators are conspiring against anyone who questions your obsessive preoccupation with a race you can't vote in.
JimRob - if this is going on, you need to put a stop to Syncro's antics and pronto!
