Kenosha; The Wirch campaign is focusing on Pro-Life and Pro-Choice issues?? Why would they do that? They are avoiding issues and just focusing on Jonathan Steitz' "Corporate Lawyer" status. Class warfare?? A few weeks ago the Dem's weren't worreid abotu this seat..now they are behaving differently! This is interesting considering those are the issues you run to when your trying to mobilize your BASE! With 6 days left Wirch's folks can't even get their Base mobilized? After yesterdays failure to capture the Flag of 3 Seats in the State Senate..and the Meltdown's from Zelinski and Tate..it could be they see this seat slipping away. Polling from Monday (Before the vote), shows this race is Tightening fast.. Low single digits!!! Last week it was 10 points..Steitz is closing fast and thousands of new dollars cascaded into the campaign office since last night! JS has the momentum..and Wirch's folks are worried. With only 2 races left..it'll be a rocking week! The GOP voters showed up with 185,000 of 350,000 voters and 53% of the vote. If Kenosha Co. and Burlington do the same Wirch is Toast.
