A funny thing happened on the way to the forum
Kevin at Lakeshore Laments reports on the debate between Assembly Speaker John Gard (R-Peshtigo) and State Rep. Terri McCormick (R-Appleton), the two candidates seeking the Republican nomination for Congress to replace Mark Green. He also has a blow-by-blow description.
The event did not start on time when McCormick ran late due to “an accident.” Turns out there was no accident, she just was running late. Telling a little white lie is not a good way to campaign when the only thing left in the campaign arsenal is “ethics.”
Kevin reports that during the debate, it appeared McCormick attempted a couple of times to land some blows on Gard which didn’t quite hit. For McCormick, she really needed to score some points here as she currently does not even have the funding to be a credible candidate.
It’s tough when you’re running behind.
(Kevin also breaks the news that the Gards have sold the house in Sun Prairie, ruining running gags across the state about Gard’s residency.)
