DNC MKE

The event and more than 1,000 related events will bring an estimated 50,000 people to Milwaukee, bringing added emphasis to the importance of Wisconsin in the presidential race.

Vindicated

Winning the 2020 Democratic National Convention is a coup for Milwaukee, Mayor Tom Barrett and a host of allies.
And for a downtown river revival rooted in former Mayor John Norquist’s New Urbanism which correctly predicted that people wanted to live and work near water and to get where they needed to go on a bike, by rail, or on their own two feet.

Via The Political Environment: Democrats’ 2020 convention will make Milwaukee glow.

Hillary Clinton Should Suspend Her Campaign

Hillary Clinton has unfavorable v. favorable ratings of minus-14 points, (Huffington Post).

The American people have lingering trust issues with Hillary Clinton.

The critical 18-29 demographic think Clinton is corrupt and dishonest.

So, naturally the DNC and surrogates today are blaring March 15 is the day we get-behind-Hillary Clinton, no matter that most of United States would not have voted including New York, most of the north and the west coast, (Democratic Strategist).

Why the rush? Why call for excluding most Democratic-voting citizens in their right to choose their president.

Sanders, not Clinton, is best for Dem electability

In other words, those swing areas of the state, the ones which will decide the Dem primary and go a long way toward deciding the final outcome in November, are areas that Hillary Clinton wins the primary in for now, but Bernie Sanders does significantly better in for the general election. And those are the same areas that Scott Walker has suffered his biggest drop in approval over the last year.

So it seems obvious to me that in February 2016, there is one Democratic candidate that would be the most likely to win Wisconsin in November, and help the downticket rural and northern Wisconsin areas that must be swung toward the Dems in order for them to get power in the Legislature and gain seats in Congress. And unlike what the “professionals” try to spin to you (you know, the same ones who thought a bland Mary Burke campaign was the “most electable” strategy in Wisconsin in 2014), that candidate wouldn’t be Hillary Clinton, but instead is Bernie Sanders….
