    One Kathleen Falk should never run for statewide office again. Maybe Peg still loses but she still lost to an eminently  mediocre candidate in JB Van Hollen in a VERY democratic year. The worst part of this is that she might win especially if its a 3+ person primary. Groups like Emily's List will give her a lot of money and she could pull it out in a multi-person primary. Kind and Erpenbach are the strongest candidates who've expressed a desire to run and if they both want to run stick them in a room and whomever comes out first gets to run. Seriously though, I'd say Kind is probably the slightly stronger candidate.

    Having said that, I'm ambivalent about a recall. We have 3-4 solid opportunities to recall Senators (and that's excluding Dale Schultz.) Its no better than even-money we'd beat Walker and I'm not sure its a risk we should take.

    •  Agree. I do not believe that Dale Schultz (1+ / 0-)

      should be recalled. He will remain in the Republican caucus, but we Democrats should sit quietly on our hands untill he retires. I think his retirement will come before 2020, as he has been in the legislature since 1982, and when he does retire, we will win his seat. Heck, he may even endorse the Dem to suceede him, if things keep going how they are going.

      19, male, WI-03 (home, voting), WI-02 (college), All the crap Scooter is doing, I should move, but that would be one less vote against him., -7.88, -4.26, End the FitzWalkerstanian police state by recalling Scott Walker!!!!
