FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
victory? defeat? for Freeepers?
I’m sitting here at my computer and am SOOOO VERY EXCITED that Glenn Grothman won tonight. I’m not even in his district any more, supported him 150%.
Thanks to all of you who DID vote for Glenn. Thanks a million times. He is the best of the best. Last time I talked to him was last week and he was very nervous. Typical Glenn. I wish I was at his victory party, but alas could not make it up there.
Very proud of him. Man...that’s hard to say about a political candidate now isn’t it. woo hoo. Great night.
This is good Pete, this guy is a leading conservative in the State Senate, big improvement over the retiring Petri.
It appears this is only thread anyone has made about tonight’s elections, I guess no one gives a damn when there isn’t a contested Senate primary.
In other news, Tom Foley beats the RINO scion McKinney for the GOP nomination for CT Governor, sets up the rematch with rat Governor Malloy.
Angel Cadena, your preferred choice for Comptroller, loses 3-1 to a very unfortunate looking lady.
The 3-way primary for LT. Gov is too close to call, with State Rep. Penny Bacchiochi nearly tied with Gronton City Councilwoman Heather Somers, your guy Walker is bringing up the rear and appears to be out of it. There appears to be some controversy about Bacchiochi, she alleged Walker was behind attacks on her Black husband (which he denies) or something and she had to fire a staffer for making some kind of comment on “white privilege”. Such a contentious race for CT. LT., interesting.
In Minnesota, the party endorsed Jeff Johnson wins a close and very open primary for Governor over several other candidates.
Party Endorsed Mike McFadden wins the Senate nomination in a landslide over Paultard State Rep. Jim Abeler, who unsurprisingly chose not to respect the party convention and stayed in the race. The wealthy McFadden has a real shot against moonbat Senator Al Franken, the race is 12th on my list of 12 rat seats I think we have a real chance to win.
In Bachmann’s open CD 6, Tom Emmer wins the primary as expected and is a lock for November.
It appears Grothman was the one who scared Petri into retirement in the first place. Now if only we could similarly get someone to scare out Sensenbrenner and Amnesty Paul...
Indeed, he did scare him out. Petri had no intention of facing his first real opponent since the 1992 general.
Slowly and steadily we might take back the GOP.
Bacchiochi leads by 23 votes and the remaining votes appear to be from her home area.
She is flawed, backed by CT GOP House caucus. But she is strong on gun rights. Most teaparty groups united behind Somers in their opposition to McKinney.
Team Boughton was betrayed by SOmers so they backed Bacchiocki.
Walker did well in upper income towns that were impressed by his resume. He’s no local yocal.
What a ghost town primary. Disgraceful that the teaparty did not follow the adage of power loves a vacuum. Foley has done little to earn support from the grassroots right.
Jeff Johnson—the name you know.
According to AP, with 100% of precincts reporting, Heather Sumers leads Penny Bacchiochi by 716 votes. Don’t know what is still outstanding (maybe some absentee and provisional ballots?).
While the race was called for Glenn Grothman relatively early, AP reports that, with 6 precincts still outstanding, Grothman leads Joe Leibham by only 215 votes. Yet AP called the race for Grothman. http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/files/elections/2014/by_state/WI_US_House_0812.html?SITE=AP&SECTION=POLITICS
Of course, Foley had the race openly stolen from him in 2010, so he’s deserving of retribution against the crook Malloy for that. Frankly, unless they run separate of the Governor on the ballot, the Lt Governor should be chosen by the candidate if they’re elected together. I’d hate to be running and have someone in the #2 slot I was forced to run with that I was completely at odds with.
I knew you were gonna go there. Hopefully this time Jeff unseats the imbecilic Mark Dayton.
Did he receive the cross-endorsement of the Silver Foxes Party?
But seriously, Johnson is a first-tier challenger, and hopefully he’ll win by enough so that Dayton can’t steal it again.
It’s that “Independence Party” that is the menace in MN. It allows plurality victories (or close enough to steal them) for the DFL moonbats at the expense of the center-right majority.
It looks like Petri did something good after all.
Victory all the way, althogh the lead has narrowed to a sliver this AM.
He sounded great on Charlie Sykes this AM. Very confident and ready for the November battle.
