Just today, Mark Neumann has proven how desperate his campaign is now as he tries to launch a publicity stunt to ask for a statewide town hall debate series between himself and Scott Walker. Neumann takes it further by making this an online petition drive. This is a common tactic used in both parties if someone is struggling in the primary and fighting to tread water for their political futures.
Mark Neumann’s tactic is nothing but a publicity stunt for his failing campaign for Governor while Scott Walker has been everywhere in Wisconsin talking to the voters of the state on the grassroots level. Maybe Neumann is desperate because he may have found out that the Republican Governor’s Association led by Mississippi Governor Hailey Barbour has had a more favorable impression on Scott Walker over himself. This was noted during a campaign conference call last Wednesday when Scott Walker got two mentions while Mr. Neumann had zero mentions.
Scott Walker has won straw poll after straw poll by convincing margins especially in Kenosha County which is Neumann Country by a big 74-25 margin. Neumann is wrong about Scott Walker labeling him as a career politician. Walker has had private sector experience before being first elected to the State Assembly. Walker is a true public servant to the people of Wisconsin.
If there is one thing about Neumann’s latest publicity grab this sort of reminds me in last year’s Wisconsin Democratic Presidential Primary in which Hillary Clinton was desperate to get a debate against Barack Obama. As petitions have short shelf life, Republicans in Wisconsin will disregard this publicity grab and continue to side with Scott Walker for a Wisconsin we can all believe in.
