An endorsement that won’t play well in a swing district
Politicians can’t always control who endorses them. However, they can control who they endorse.
State Senator Jim Sullivan might live to regret this endorsement. Fresh from her speaking engagement at the very left-wing “Fighting Bob Fest”, Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton announced yesterday Sullivan endorsed her for governor:
”Barbara Lawton has my full support for governor,” said Senator Sullivan.
Lawton may end up proving too liberal for Wauwatosa’s Democratic voters in the primary, let alone the voters in a general election. Endorsing her, and endorsing her early as he has, is not going to make any claims of being a moderate very plausible.
