Two Right Wing Nuts Interested In Gov. Jim Doyle's Seat

Two right wing nuts are trying to take Gov. Jim Doyle's seat in the state of Wisconsin. Jim Doyle has been really great so far and hopefully Jim Doyle will run for re-election again this coming term. Here is what the Green Bay Press Gazette reported:

"Neumann represented parts of southeastern Wisconsin in Congress from 1994 until 1999. He caused a stir in 1997 when he said he would never hire any openly gay person in his office. He lost a bid to unseat U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold and faded from politics. He’s spent the last decade in the home construction industry and working with charter schools.

Walker mounted a gubernatorial campaign in 2006 but dropped out when his fundraising lagged behind that of eventual nominee Mark Green of Hobart.

Both have criticized the governor on the economy, making it likely they will have to distinguish themselves on social issues during the primary, Franklin said.

Neumann had the backing of social conservatives when he was in Congress, Franklin said. Walker, meanwhile, has had to be more moderate to succeed in Milwaukee.

Both must take care not to appear too conservative, which could hurt their chances in the general election against Doyle, said Joe Heim, a political science professor at UW-La Crosse."
