Waukesha Freeman Thursday, August 7, 2014 Page A5 Opinion Candidates have just five days Allen, Rosner top contenders Only five more shopping days left in the primary campaign season. Have you picked a candidate? As former Waukesha Mayor Larry Nelson observed the other night, in a field this large, normally one or two candidates are […]

Coming into the final week of the campaign in the 97th Assembly district, the Allen campaign and the Rosner campaign are nearly even in cash on hand. Kathleen Cummings’s campaign got a sudden boost, but still is third behind the leaders. Scott Allen raised $8,600 this period, bringing the campaign total to $25,970.98. Of the […]

It’s the gift that keeps on giving to Scott Allen. On Wednesday, Charlie Sykes on WTMJ made a verbal jab at Brandon Rosner (37:20 minute mark) for making what Sykes called, “the single stupidest comment made by a candidate.”  Yes, there was a reminder that Rosner gave money to Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca while Allen […]

WISN-AM radio host Jay Weber, after explaining how he knows Scott Allen, laughed at Brandon Rosner’s defense of giving money to Democratic State Rep Peter Barca: Allen likes Democrats, too. Except the Democrat Allen likes is Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.  (I commented on this last night.) You can listen to the Jay Weber podcast […]

In case you’re not listening to the radio, the realtors have bought ads in support of Scott Allen’s candidacy in the 97th Assembly District. The amount I’m hearing is $11,000 on WISN and $25,000 with WTMJ. That type of buy quickly evens the playing field with the more well-funded Brandon Rosner.  It may also help explain why […]

Hey, Brandon Rosner gave money to Assembly Democrat Minority Leader Peter Barca so he knows a Democrat when he sees one. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s  political gossip columnist Dan Bice, Rosner defended himself on the Barca matter by pointing out his opponent Scott Allen posed for pictures with Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke at […]
