The Maistelman factor
Depending on the closeness of Tuesday night’s results, the Republican Senate Primary could come down to the “Maistelman factor.” Whose election attorneys will be the sharpest at counting votes in a recount?
Hey, I’m willing to sell Mike Maistelman’s phone number to whichever campaign promises me the most Snickers bars. Maistelman might as well come out by me in Waukesha Tuesday night so he can be halfway between the Eric Hovde (Marriott Milwaukee West) and Tommy Thompson (Country Springs) victory parties, making it easy to get to whomever calls him first.
The irony of moving the election date to August is that we might know the winner of the Republican Primary until September. Yep, I just scared the hell out of half my readers, but anything is possible at this point.
