  •  Ron Kind would be a disaster (0+ / 0-)

    He's a Blue Dog with further political ambition and has been going around the state glad handing and drooling with anticipation.  Barca will stay in the Assembly - he's a good guy but really doesn't want or need the statewide hassle of a run for Governor.

    And Barrett is out - he's said so publicly and that's good.  He was a lousy candidate who failed, over and over again, to point out why Walker needed to be recalled (he never once talked about collective bargaining or the slashes to programs for the poor and disabled).

    There's the Kathleen Vineholt supporters encouraging her to run, but that candidacy will go nowhere because she's almost as pro-birth as Walker.  Yes, she'll get the anti-Walker vote, but activists and progressives won't back her with time or money.

    Nobody for sure is stepping forward now, but someone should get the jump on 2014 soon as Tammy Badwin did for her 2012 victory for the US Senate.  She has shown demonstrably that progressives with a progressive agenda WIN statewide.  Offering up more weakling Democrats will only lead to further losses.

    We need a solid progressive to defeat Walker and a whole bunch of progressives for legislative office.  It's the only way to win.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      Additionally, Feingold said that he won't be a candidate for public office in 2014 and hinted at a run for his old Senate seat in 2016.

      DPW chair Mike Tate said right before the DPW convention that several "good people" were looking at a run against Walker, but refused to provide names.
