Bryan Van StippenDEERBROOK, WI - After learning that Dave Polashek has suspended his campaign for the 12th Senate District, Bryan Van Stippen released the following statement:

“Dave is a good friend of mine, and I am sad to hear that he has suspended his campaign for the 12th Senate District. I have a lot of respect for Dave and his wealth of experience in education as an educator and superintendent in Oconto Falls. I hope to be able to work with him on education issues that our state is facing.”

"Dave and I both share the goal of stopping Senator Tom Tiffany’s disastrous policies coming out of Madison. Going door-to-door and listening to what people have to say, they see Senator Tiffany isn’t a representative of the district.”

“Not one person who I have talked to said they want more restrictions on local control, but we see Tom Tiffany sponsoring that type of legislation. Legislation that has no place in the Northwoods, or anywhere in Wisconsin. I want to be able to represent the district for the people who actually live here, not the special interests that just come and deplete our natural resources.”

“I am glad to have gained the support of Dave and his followers, and be a unifying candidate for all of the residents of the Northwoods.”

“Bringing back accountability to our state government and releasing the handcuffs that Senator Tiffany has put on local municipalities is what I want to do as your representative in the 12th Senate District.”

Bryan Van Stippen will be attending a candidate meet and greet alongside the 34th and 35th Assembly District Democratic candidates at 5:00 PM on Sunday, June 5th at the Rhinelander Quality Inn. He will be available for discussion and interviews.

ron-johnsonMADISON - While Russ Feingold travels the state listening to the concerns of Wisconsinites in all 72 counties, Sen. Johnson is hobnobbing with millionaires in Texas. Johnson will join one of his ultra-conservative colleagues, John Cornyn, for a fundraiser in San Antonio today.

Lucky Texans can shell out $500 dollars for a chance to meet the Washington Republicans. After San Antonio, Sen. Johnson will swing by Houston for a second fundraiser. It's indicative of who he represents that on the deadline to file nominating papers to represent Wisconsin, but Sen. Johnson (who flew out yesterday) is busy courting wealthy out-of-state donors.

Johnson has been crisscrossing the country to meet with wealthy backers. He left work in Washington early a few weeks ago to meet with Wall Street bankers in New York. Unfortunately, Wisconsinites don’t get as much face time with our state’s senior U.S. Senator. Between his time in Washington and his time out of state to fundraise, Sen. Johnson doesn’t have much time to listen to his own constituents.
