Now 3 dems for the primary. Since WI has an open primary I can’t wait to write in Walker so he’ll be on both the Republican and democrat sides of the ballot. This gonna be fun.

Vote for who you want wiz, but consider this:
“Under state statutes, when a recall election is certified against Governor Walker he is automatically placed on the ballot as a Republican. According to Wisconsin Statute 8.03, a candidate cannot represent both parties, therefore making his name invalid in the Democratic primary, despite the number of write-in votes he may receive.”

Walker’s not concerned about taxpayers – he is concerned about giving tax breaks to the rich. My family and everyone I know has been hurt by his policies. Mr. La Follette, you have my vote.

My family, and everyone I know, has either been helped by Walker’s policies or is grateful to still have a job even though their golden apple benefits got a bit tarnished.

Alice do you have the same concern for all the big money unions are spending on the elections? Small business and business in general will DIE with unions at eh reigns as will school districts…they don’t give a rats behind about the kids, they care about how much they can collect in union dues. Honestly, for someone who says she is informed, you seem to put blinders on to the truth all the time. What big business got breaks? My fathers business is considered big..no breaks? List the big business breaks that have personally effected YOU.

Falk, the hand-picked union favorite, is getting blasted by La Follette and Feingold for taking out-of-state money. Falk, on the other hand, will have to see this news in a Chicago newspaper, as she is fundraising in Chicago on Friday.
La Follette claims he will combat big money flowing in to the campaign, but time will tell if he will RETURN any out-of-state donations. Come to think of it, George Soros has his Sec of State project where he donates to Democrats running for SoS…wonder if Mr. Doug took any money?

The important thing is, after the elections the right will no longer control the senate. So much for walker’s agenda.
You assume a lot, Alice, thinking the Ds will take control of the senate. It may happen, but we’ll see now that there has been a year of reforms that held property taxes down.
IF a democrat is elected governor, do you really expect him/her to repeal Act 10? Aside from Falk, no other dem candidate has agreed to that. Has it occurred to you a Dem may be interested in keeping things as is?
