24th Assembly District troubles

Elections, WISCONSIN

Our 24th Assembly District neighbors to the north have had quite a week since their Sept. 9th primary election. Candidate Dan Knodl won by about 400 votes, but his victory is not without controversy,

A woman who was falsely listed on Republican Daniel Knodl's campaign literature as a supporter on Wednesday asked district attorneys in Waukesha and Washington counties to launch an investigation into the campaign.

As if that was not enough, the Knodl backers tangle expands:

Assembly candidate Daniel Knodl, under investigation over falsely listing names of supporters on campaign literature, faced a new accusation Monday that he erroneously claimed one of his primary opponents has endorsed him.

This latest error, that LaSage is endorsing Knodl, is a little easier to understand. Evidently the 3 opponents met with Knodl and other Republicans to discuss the coming Nov. 4th election. (My emphasis)

Meanwhile, he [Knodl] said he met with his primary challengers and other local Republicans at a post-election fence-mending, unifying breakfast where they agreed to work for a Republican ticket clean sweep Nov. 4.

“All of them have agreed to back my campaign,” he [Knodl] said.

Knodl's opponents, Randall Melchert and Michael Moscicke, stated on Monday that they do endorse Knodl, according to the Journal. Melchert affirmed this when I spoke with him on Sunday.

From the tangle expands article:

LaSage, in his letter to Knodl, said he attended the Republican rally on Wednesday to support conservative principles.

LaSage, in an interview, said it was possible that Knodl thought he supported his campaign because he attended the rally.

So Jason LaSage has not officially endorsed Knodl. Perhaps he is still hoping for a special election?


As a side note on the subject of endorsements, Randall Melchert told me he was the only candidate of the 4 who officially endorsed James Sensenbrenner.

Please, comment content should relate to the subject of the post. Although I try to respond to many, do not interpret my lack of a response as agreement.
