In her Big Government post, anti-union numbnut Dana Loesch defended Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch (R) from the grassroots Recall Walker movement. As usual, she was delusional enough to falsely declare that the Walker/Kleefisch reforms “are helping Wisconsin.”
No other race in the country better embodies the struggle between conservative and progressive ideals than the recall battle over Wisconsin’s Lieutenant Governor.
The incumbent is former stay-at-home-mom and journalist Rebecca Kleefisch, whose ascent through the state party was a hard-won battle against the establishment, waged by a fed-up citizen. Kleefisch didn’t just fight the GOP establishment and win by double-digits; during the primary she also fought and defeated colon cancer.
Mitchell opposes the the very reforms of collective bargaining privileges that have brought Wisconsin voters the economic stability they desired. Democrats want to keep holding elections at the public’s expense until they get the results they want. In the meantime, their far-left, out-of-state interests will pump somewhere around $80 million into the Wisconsin Democrat party—a chunk of that into Mitchell’s campaign—in their assault on economic reform. The reforms Kleefisch has helped to enact during her tenure as Lieutenant Governor have saved the state millions of dollars.
Mahlon Mitchell (D) will likely be the next Lt. Governor of Wisconsin, whether Loesch and her ilk like it or not!
