There has been a lot of pessimism out there about the Tammy/Tommy race for Senate. For a while, the polls gave plenty of reason for that pessimism and I was honestly one of those pessimists.
Well, a good campaign by Tammy is turning things around. Two polls that previously had her behind were released today. One has the race tied at 47-47. The other, which previously had Tammy behind 41-50, now has Tammy ahead 50-41.
I wish I could believe Tammy was ahead 50-41. I don't. I believe 47-47 much more. However, the key is that Tammy is in this! She's been running a great campaign and she now has momentum! Wisconsin needs Tammy and she can pull this out for us.
What she needs, though, is for us to be backing her up. I don't watch much TV and I listen to broadcast radio even less but Tammy is all over the airwaves right now and Tommy is mostly silent. Tammy is traveling all over the state to meet voters and Tommy is MIA. To keep this momentum going, we need to make sure Tammy can keep beating Tommy, both at the ground game and on the airwaves. I'm confident that she can beat him on the ground. Over the airwaves, I'm less sure when Americans for Prosperity and others decide to jump in, as I'm quite sure they will at some point.
If you can, please consider contributing to Tammy. She can beat Tommy. With our help, she can ensure we still have one Senator representing us in Washington.
It would be just wrong for Wisconsin in just two years to go from having Russ Feingold and Herb Kohl representing us to having Ron Johnson and Tommy Thompson misrepresenting us. Please don't let this happen. Please stand with Tammy so she can stand for the great people of Wisconsin in Washington.
