The WI GOP Will Not Like One 'Colleague's' Environmental Pragmatism

The other day we noted the moderating pragmatism of GOP State Senator Dale Schultz, (R-Richland Center), on school names and mascots.

On Thursday, Schultz stood up for local control - - and public health, safety and resource protection - - of mining in the face of a thoughtless, GOP-induced special interest takeover.

But Schultz - - who had the temerity to oppose the environmentally-toxic iron mining bill - - offends Tea Party and harder-edge Republican ideologues who are lining up a primary opponent from the right because the majority party cannot stand the presence of a dissenter.
