As the battle for Wisconsin rages on, some interesting developments have come to light. For example, the Wisconsin state senate leader, Scott Fiztgerald, is up for what looks more and more like a real contest with a newcomer- Lori Compas. Nobody thought that Compas had much of a chance. But recently, her poll numbers have been rising.
So what explanation can Fitzgerald come up with for why he is losing ground to this political newcomer? Could it be his support of blatantly anti-woman policies over the last few years? Could it be his support of a governor who is more concerned with his own interests than the needs of the people of Wisconsin? Could it be that his opponent is a charismatic and savvy up-and-comer who is in touch with the interests of the people of Wisconsin?
No. Just ask Fitzgerald. The only reason that she is doing so well is that her husband must be in charge of her campaign.
That’s right, a woman can’t run her own political organization. She can’t come up with her own ideas. She can only be, as Fitzgerald described her, a “Pollyanna.”
Good job, establishment GOP. You have firmly placed yourself and your ideologies where they belong. In the past.
