Tate takes shot at Republicans, pledges to outwork other side


Dems have worked too hard to go back to the days of tax breaks for the rich, torturing our political prisoners, and discriminating against gays and lesbians, Mike Tate told delegates following his nomination as DPW chair.

"We are not going back!" Tate declared as he addressed the convention for the first time as a nominee for party chair.

Tate showed a video to the convention that recounted his experience working for various campaigns around Wisconsin and followed it by pledging to "knock on more doors, raise more money from more people" and activate more volunteers than the other side.

"We are going to outwork, outcommunicate and straight up beat down any Republican who gets in our way," Tate promised.

He also had a message for Scott Walker and Mark Neumann, one of whom could be the GOP nominee for governor next year. He called both of them retread, failed leaders who don't offer any new ideas or new solutions.

"If I have to knock on every door of every voter of Wisconsin myself, I will do that just so they know how incompetent the both of you are," Tate said.

Listen to the speech.
