Leadership problem

One thing is very clear from the elections on Tuesday night.

We have a leadership problem in the Republican party. Whether we like to admit this or not, we have a problem.

I was most struck by the fact that here in Wisconsin, we could not mount any kind of real challenge to the Democrats in our state.

We could not find a credible candidate to run against Kohl.

Worse yet, we only challenged 13 of 39 seats held by the Democrats in our State legislature.

That is pathetic.

As I remember the conversations at the Saturday Socials, not challenging in Assembly Districts such as the 64th was a strategic move to prevent increased Democratic turnout.

That worked real well!

You're right. We should actively challenge for all Democrat held sears.
