Think the WISGOP couldn’t find someone worse for the Fifth Congressional District than F. James Sensenbrenner has been? Think again. Molly Beck reports Longtime state Senate leader Scott Fitzgerald announces bid for Congress:
Scott Fitzgerald, a fixture of the Wisconsin state Senate for the last 25 years, announced Tuesday he would seek a higher office in the U.S. House of Representatives. Fitzgerald, 56, is the first Republican to enter the race to succeed retiring Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner and launches a bid to represent the deeply conservative district at a time when his ties to President Donald Trump may turn off some voters in the Milwaukee suburbs.
Whitewater is not a Milwaukee suburb – it’s a small and beautiful city far from most of this over-stretched district. Fitzgerald will never carry a majority of this city’s residents; his politics are, at bottom, a threat and affront to them.
It will be well worth covering every moment of his campaign.
