WI DEM Primary..Folks have been asking me who to vote for...this is my list..

WI DEM Primary..Folks have been asking me who to vote for...this is my list..

Folks have been asking me who to vote for...this is my list..I sent it to our DEMS in Stevens Point, WI.

GOV: My pal Margaret just returned from Africa. She told me she met some movie stars there..Danny Glover and another one..I asked Meryl Streep? No, better, Russ Feingold. I said I hope you asked him who to vote for. She did. He would not commit. He said the "PARTY is supporting Tony Evers." I do NOT. Polls have him leading because he has a big job and name recognition. Nobody I know has been called by a poll, and you know how they were so accurate on Hillary/Trump. So I discount polls. He has zero personality and Walker will eat him in a debate.

I want the most progressive person, as we can't take babysteps to undo all the bad Walker has done. We need a radical..McCabe is grand on $$ out of politics and very earnest, but I don't think he can win. Soglin can't win. Matt Flynn was my initial guy, but the church scandal Walker will use to deflect/smear him...Kathleen is bad on guns...and Kelda I am not sure of...will WI elect a woman? So I am going for Mahlon Mitchell. A Huffington Post article said he may be the guy to take Walker out...he won't hesitate in a debate, he is kind of sassy. Of course, he is a firefighter, and no real governing chops. But, what was Walker....Patty Drier did his job, here.

LT GOV: Mandela Barnes

AG: Josh Kaul

TREASURER: Dawn Sass..she had the job before and will hit ground running.

SEN: Tammy Baldwin

REP: I leave blank. After SandyHook I challenged Ron Kind at 4 townhalls RE: guns...he also voted with the Rs under Trump to allow crazy people to buy guns. He had to be dragged kicking and screaming RE: climate issues.....He does NOT represent me.

STATE REP: Katrina Shankland

SHERIFF: I am also abstaining on this vote. Sheriff Lukas supports Brad Schimel...the hideous Scott Walker dangerous crooked AG guy.

CLERK COURTS: Lisa Roth

1. Can you point me to where Earnell Lucas supports Schimel?

I have not heard anything about this in the Milwaukee County sheriff's race.

3. Never mind, I did some research and you probably mean Portage Co. sheriff Mike Lukas

Our sheriff candidate in Milwaukee Co., Earnell Lucas, is the real deal. He has vast experience and training in law enforcement and is committed to treating people with fairness and respect. I'm sorry to hear that you have a bad sheriff to deal with, but glad to clear up any misunderstanding about their names.

2. I heard Mahlon Mitchell speak at Fighting Bob Fest

a few years back and was impressed. I only hope that he has people working for him that have dug deep into his past so they can be prepared for the dirt that Walker and the Koch's will throw out there. That is the danger of running someone with no political background, his dirty laundry has not been aired.

6. I like Mitchell too....

I like his message and what I believe is his ability to fight toe-to-toe with Walker...

Tony has the experience to govern but I'm not sure of his ability to fight....

Kelda? Love her message and enthusiasm...but not sure about her judgement.

We'll see

4. Sincere question...

I've already voted (for a woman, by the way), but if Wisconsin won't vote for a woman, will they vote for a black man? Which is the more powerful prejudice?

I love Mahlon, but he does have some skeletons that would be red meat for the other side.

Edited to add: Duh, I posted this before reading AJT's comment about background.

5. Funny, in 2008 I had to convince my parents to vote for Obama...

they weren't sure a woman could win and said a black man could never win....
