Good. I am glad that Thompson is not running. The only thing that was accomplished by this game played by the media and Thompson, is that it drove many folks towards Mark Green.
Being a former Walker supporter, I had the opportunity recently to look Mark Green in the eyes and try and figure out where he was coming from. I liked what I saw.
Mark Green was at Kenosha County's Lincoln day dinner last night and I got a couple of brief moments to speak to him. I asked him flat out- "Are you worried about Thompson?" He looked me straight in the eye and said- "No". He didn't elaborate, he didn't make excuses, he didn't slam Thompson, he did not comment any further on it. He just moved on.
As my conversation continued, I saw something that I had not seen before. What I saw was that Mark Green loves Wisconsin. He loves talking about Wisconsin, he loves living in Wisconsin, he truly cares about the people of Wisconsin.
Mark Green may not be a slickest speaker or a media favorite, but Congressman Green cares about the direction this state is going.
To those former Walker supporters like myself, it's time to get over it. Scott Walker is not running for Governer, Mark Green is. No more mourning and wishing things were different. It is time to get over it, I have!
Now that Thompson has stopped playing games, our choices are very simple. Wisconsin conservatives have two choices on who they will vote for on election day.
Wisconsin conservatives- Who are you going to vote for? Jim Doyle or Mark Green?
I have made my choice- I want Mark Green to be my next governor. I will work and work and work to make sure that Mark Green is the next governor of Wisconsin.
