Peg claims Dem superiority over Falk

The Democratic primary race for state Attorney General is heating up now that the party's convention kicks off tonight in La Crosse.

Mark Pocan points us to this swipe that incumbent AG Peg Lautenschlager took at her challenger Kathleen Falk. In her statement, Peg mentions that she's been a dues paying member of the Democratic Party far longer than Falk. Kathleen Falk has only become a paying member of the party in the last decade apparently.

Also according to Peg, in the past Falk named former EPA Director and Republican Governor of New Jersey Christine Todd Whitman as one of her two favorite politicians. Wow, I'm shocked. How dare she have respect for colleagues across the aisle?

Obviously Peg is hoping such a thing mobilizes the rank and file behind her during the convention. Wisconsin has an open primary though, and Peg is going to need a little more than that in her arsenal to get re-elected. It's childish press releases like this one that reaffirm my support for Falk in the primary.

How much more boring does it get when a blogger blogs on what another blogger blogged? Just one step away from blah, blah, blah.

It was more about the press release than what Pocan had to say about it, but to each their own. Thanks for playing.
