La Follette, 'lonely' as elected statewide Dem, predicts victory in November

Secretary of State Doug La Follette thanked delegates for supporting him during his tenure in office, but said it's been "lonely" as the lone Dem to hold statewide office.

"I know you're all going to fix that for me in November," La Follette said.

La Follette said strong candidates are running for the open AG and state treasurer positions, and that, "of course, the grand prize is ridding our proud state of Mr. Walker" -- and joking that re-electing the secretary of state should be on delegates' minds as well.

The secretary of state also urged delegates to thank President Jimmy Carter for his appointment of Judge Barbara Crabb to the federal bench, stressing that presidential elections matter when it comes to deciding issues -- such as same-sex marriage rights -- in the courts.
