La Follette: Dems ran into tornado of money and blizzard of BS

Secretary of State Doug La Follette said Dems could talk about mistakes that were made in the guv’s race, what they should have done and what they could have done.

But he stressed they did the best they could.

“Now we just have to learn to do a little better,” La Follette said.

La Follette, who came in fourth in the Dem guv primary, said Dems ran into a “tornado of money and blizzard of BS.”

“But we faced it proudly and we did good,” La Follette said. “Next time we’ll do better.”

La Follette laid out for delegates how Republicans have been successful at duping the American public into going along with their agenda of lower taxes and less regulations. He said that included creating conservative think tanks like The Heritage Foundation to push position papers and the creation of a conservative media that included Rush Limbaugh and his clowns, which La Follette later corrected to clones.

Republicans then pulled in ground troops from the likes of the NRA and the Christian Right, allowing them to hijack the country for the past 30 years.

“Unfortunately, the last couple of years they’ve hijacked our Wisconsin,” La Follette said. “Now we need a strategy to do something about that.”
