Today’s political climate appears a call for new blood in office meanwhile Democrats are fighting to keep their majority in the governor’s mansion and both houses of the legislature. State Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate says he’s not too worried about what is happening in the national environment but focuses on who is running for Wisconsin offices.
He believes his party will come out ahead in the November general election as people focus what individual candidates have to offer rather than the political mood.
Tate also took a shot at former Milwaukee TV anchor Rebecca Kleefisch who secured the Republican spot for Lt. Governor making her gubernatorial nominee Scott Walker’s running mate. He says the actual ticket is “Walker/Palin,” referring to polarizing former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Tate says her “extreme” views dovetail with Walker’s extremism.
According to her website, Kleefisch is 100% pro-life and has earned an “A” rating from the NRA.
