And then there were two

A Wigderson Library & Pub 97th Assembly Update exclusive:

Just got word from the Waukesha Democratic Party that Roger Danielsen, the disgraced... etc., etc., will not be running for state assembly. The two candidates in the 97th Assembly District Democratic Primary will be attorney and environmental activist Steve Schmuki, and Democratic activist and educational tax-hike activist Ruth Page Jones.

No official reason was given to me, but clearly Danielsen would have been at a severe disadvantage facing the other two. His only hope was Republicans crossing over to vote for him to cause mischief*. Danielsen's efforts looked more like an effort to redeem his tattered reputation than to mount an effective campaign.

I'll have an updated analysis of the race between Schmuki and Jones on Monday.

(*Must tell the lovely Doreen from Waukesha to put away the Danielsen yard sign.)
