I was stunned that the Dems and the Mary Burke campaign decided to avert their gaze from the John Doe investigation recently — so I created a poll to get feedback on the matter.
Below are the full results.
As for the article that just came out in Paul “Vote Mary” Fanlund’s Cap Times – it suggests that Wisco Dems are broadcasting a “JOBS JOBS JOBS” message to the masses and a more nuanced “JOBS/John Doe” message to liberals.
At least for the moment.
