The rest of us struggle BECAUSE of Scott Walker.
It's not working. Never has. Never will. It's time for a change.


Yeah, that'd be a great--and by great, I mean terrible--ad, considering how much the rest of the state just loves being told how much better Madison is than them.

People who will miss the point of that ad, that Walker has failed THEM, aren't persuadable anyway. The election will most likely turn on moderate, undecided voters who can be persuaded. Walker doesn't abandon his base when he runs, so the Democratic nominee shouldn't either.

Perhaps not the best way to start the campaign...

Since Scott Walker is a Miller Lite drinker, we should know what his Mayor drinks. It's gotta be better!

Soglin's quick action on taking down Confederate memorials will help him. I think he will run and he will win.

Still can't decide.

Mayor Soglin says he will ‘most likely' run for governor in 2018
http://www.channel3000.com/news/politic ... /650397946

"Soglin told the Capital Times he will make a formal announcement early next year because he wants to see the city budget formalized and adopted in early November and then wait until after the holidays to make the announcement."

Even Walker hasn't yet officially declared, but do you doubt he will run again?

Just wondering if he actually filed the papers to run. That's different from making a speech.

Henry's right. Until I see proof that Walker filed papers this doesn't pass the smell test.
