“We’re looking for congressional candidates who will stand up and repeal Obamacare legislatively,” Dane told POLITICO in an interview.
Their first choice was Terri McCormick, a former Wisconsin state legislator who is running in the Republican primary to challenge Democratic Rep. Steve Kagen. The state’s 8th District spent nearly a decade in Republican hands before Kagen won in 2006. McCormick is considered the underdog in the primary: Roofer Reid Ribble holds the lead in fundraising and establishment support
That's Tony Dane of Las Vegas, speaking of his group PeopleV.US. This story is old news here in WI-8, but is now making national headlines.
For the most part, I would say the support for PeopleV.US has not been beneficial to McCormick considering the negative attention it has garnered her. Of course, I'm sure the campaign donations are helpful.
For the record, I think the Roth campaign might disagree with the line about Ribble having more establishment support.
