Hovde set to buy election?

Are we going to have another multimillionaire going to try and buy another WI election? I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Repubs would vote for a guy who moved here to win a Senate seat. He's lived in DC for the past 27 years. Yeah, he's a real Wisconsinite.

1. That's my fear...

his campaign ads are very reminiscent of Ron Johnson's. I think we've seen that money buys elections in this state.

2. Yep, Johnson proved there are enough low-information voters whose mind can be bought

with enough investment in media.

4. He makes Tommy Thompson so much less scary.

He's the worst of a bad bunch because he's young and attractive and if he gets in we'll never get rid of him.

Think about voting for Thompson in the Republican primary next month. Tammy has a shot at beating him.

5. Thats a good idea.....Thompson is very beatable. Hovde would be a disaster.
