Leah Vukmir, ALEC wheel, solidifies US Senate bid

The GOP Wisconsin establishment really wants to move Democratic US Senator Tammy Baldwin's seat and vote 180 degrees to the far right.

So GOP Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald

just threw his support to Brookfield GOP State Senator and ultra-rightist Leah Vukmir - - a 2016 Vukmir Urban Milwaukee profile is here - - while major GOP donor, Scott Walker ally and Beloit billionaire businesswoman Diane Hendricks is on board as Vukmir's lead fund-raiser.

Makes sense, as Vukmir is an honored and past chair of the ALEC Board of Directors, and that's just what Wisconsin's far-right GOP really likes.

Very observant, James, about that GOP Vukmir plan. We really must shut it down. Perhaps the MJS could add to the discussion.

I used to wear penny-loafers and read Rolling Stone, thinking I was just so cutting edge. Then I realized that we're now in the 21st century and need to make things better for us all -- younger and older.

You don't need to be a progressive or a democrat to be offended by the rude and angry style of 6 gun Leah Vukmir. I'm sure after her campaign reads this she become sweet as pie for the cameras. Too late. She created her image and her style of politics. So extreme. So toxic.

Debates will be interesting. I wonder if there will be any?

This seems a gift to Tammy.
