Hovde Surges in Polls

Political newcomer Eric Hovde continues to surge in polls.

Our campaign is continuing to gain momentum. 

Last week, we learned that we are in a statistical dead heat with four-term governor Tommy Thompson for the GOP nomination (http://www.ericforsenate.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/HovdePollMemo5.9.12.pdf). 

Then, yesterday, we learned that we lead the presumptive Democrat nominee, Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, by four points (http://www.dailykos.com/polling/2012/5/11/WI/123/MjpEP). 

Despite never running for office before and campaigning for just two months, we are already well-positioned to defeat two career politicians who have spent their careers in government building up their name ID.

This is because our message, organization and resources are resonating with voters statewide, and folks across Wisconsin are ready for another citizen legislator with new ideas and a fresh perspective. 

Thank you all for your continued support!

Randy, Thanks...very unexpected reply from anyone. My prime directive in my classes is not teaching people what to think but encouraging them to think and to think, not only outside of the box, but beyond the tomato... to be creative in a phrase. The fact that we are bogged down in a two party, black and white, either/or, with us or against us, mode of thinking in this state and country... stifles what can be....like looking at a world through a welding shield. Glad your courses were good for you.

Quick question

Where is Gov Doyle these days...he left us with a $3B deficit and now is working for a large law firm billing $400 an hour. Wow, talk about skating. Wait, he was a Democrat!! High spending, big government and leave our kids with huge bills because we want to appeal to all versus making tough choices. That is what Barrett will give us again. Walker, moving forward Barrett, back to Doyle days

Note to Patch. How about an interview with former Gov Doyle.....

Personally I have no great faith in any politicians. Apparently, to win, you must curry the favor of and hence become beholden to, rich corporate interests. Its not a stretch to say that these jobs are for sale to the highest bidder. But this idea that Democrats are about big spending and Republicans are frugal, flies in the face of Republican Presidents who start wars... racking up trillions in expenses and debts. Republicans spend big...just not on social interests...they go for the military industrial complex and oil companies, banking, etc. Check a list of Romney key supporters against a list of Obama key supporters. But both sides sell their souls IMO.
