    Wisconsin is going to get their 2nd teabagger Senator.

    I just don't understand what happened in Wisconsin in the last couple of years to make it Kansas North.

      To have the upper hand in Wisconsin, and that should help Baldwin. It just looks like the Wisconsin Democratic Party is pretty weak and disorganized compared to the machine the Wisconsin Republicans have seemed to build. This is especially why Baldwin needs help from the likes of the DSCC, Emily's List, HRC, and the unions. As long as they come in to ensure Baldwin is getting her message across the airwaves while she puts together a good field operation, this race is very winnable.

      •  I'm not sure. (0+ / 0-)

        The party seems to be run by some really good people. Honestly the Democrats bench seems a little thin right now.

        I don't want to diminish what the WI Democratic Party pulled off in the Senate recall races because those were huge wins but they've got a lot of work to do.

        This Senate seat is one that would be an absolute disaster to lose. There is no reason Wisconsin should have TWO teabagger Senators.

      •  How can they be so disorganized after such a (0+ / 0-)

        historic and huge recall effort?  I don't get it.  You would think they would be more organized than any other state this year.
