Bill Christofferson in the Journal Sentinel on September 21:
“When Democratic voters get to pick the Democratic nominee, they are more likely to nominate … the one they perceive as the real Democrat. That was Larson.”
Read the rest: Primary system here worked as it should.
Meanwhile the Isthmus‘s Jack Craver thinks “Chris Larson could transform Wisconsin Senate leadership.”
The Milwaukee Magazine News Buzz blog notes in “Piling on Plale” that Bill Christofferson has made “an analysis showing $8,100 of the $35,000 [incumbent District 7 State Senator Jeff] Plale raised in the first half of 2010 came from “people connected to electric utilities.” Cable TV executives, he says, contributed $2,650. Phone company folks added $6,500. Christofferson suggest there’s a link between the donations and Plale’s roles in killing the Clean Energy Jobs Act this year and writing de-regulation bills for the cable and phone industries. (The phone one died.)”
From The Isthmus: “Many Democrats are especially upset with Plale for his role in preventing the passage of the Clean Energy Jobs Act,. Although an initial sponsor of the legislation, Plale, as chair of the Senate Utilities Committee, never brought the bill to a vote.”
