    His district has way too much Dane County to get away with this BS. Specifically, it has way too many people who liked being represented by Mark Miller.

    •  It's a matter of who will challenge Cullen (0+ / 0-)

      ...there are two potential carpetbaggers, Lori Compas and Jenni Nye (Compas lives in SD-11 and Nye lives in SD-27), who might consider moving to SD-15 to challenge Cullen, but likely will not do so. Interestingly, there was some discussion during the SD-13 recall as to whether or not Compas would carpetbag into SD-15 in order to challenge Cullen in 2014 if Compas won the SD-13 recall, however, Compas lost.

      I don't know of any progressives that actually live in SD-15 that might consider running for the SD-15 Democratic nomination in 2014.

      Joe Liberman, Mike Madigan, Andrew Cuomo, and Tim Cullen...why are they Democrats?

      •  Andy Jorgensen is already running in AD43 (4+ / 0-)

        which is one-third of SD15 (like Compas, he's from Fort Atkinson). He's got lots of experience as an Assemblyman, and he's a pretty solid Democrat. He would be good at getting votes in purple rural areas that might otherwise give votes to Cullen, and he should be pretty strong in the blue urban and suburban areas.

        •  I didn't think of Jorgensen at all (0+ / 0-)

          Jorgensen, who, ironically, was a target of the Fitzmander, might actually get a State Senate seat after 2014...I'm speechless!

          I'm thinking Nye might run for Erpenbach's seat when he retires or runs for higher office.

          Joe Lieberman, Mike Madigan, Andrew Cuomo, and Tim Cullen...why are they Democrats?
