Who knows, maybe she'll be "primaried" by John Buckstaff again.
But all kidding aside, she does have a Republican challenger who has filed nomination papers.
Rick Gudex - (R) Fond du Lac.
Member of the City Council and Council President.
Here is Rick's campaign site
Rick's resume looks impressive, but he's not as strong a candidate as one might think. There's plenty here for Democrats to go after, and over the next few months I certainly will dish as much dirt as I can. But, whatever help I can lend on here is minimal compared to what boots on the ground and a successful Democratic Party education effort will do.
You can view a conversation Rick had with Oshkosh local access TV here: (I love the fact he rips off Sen. Ron Johnson saying "Wisconsin is at a crossroads". Good Neo-Stalwart street cred I bet)
He hits the Neo-Stalwart talking points everywhere. "Business, business, business" is the mantra he holds through and through. "Get government out of the way, Illinois dig, move Forward" etc. I can't believe he thinks that Jessica King is "trying to take us a step backwards." It's amazing to me at times he doesn't see himself in the likeness of a Gilded Age pol, cause I sure do.
For those of you who are progressive, liberal, or Democrat and want to keep the State Senate in November, help us here in the 18th Senate District beat this guy. It's a short hour's drive from Downtown Milwaukee and it's only an hour fifteen from Capital Square to Veterans Park in Fond du Lac. Consider helping out in Fond du Lac or Oshkosh this fall, because keeping Senator King representing the 18th Senate District is paramount for Democrats to keep a check on Governor Walker.
