Wisconsin GOP head: Mass. victory should worry Democrats (11:02 a.m. 1/20/10)

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The chairman of Wisconsin’s Republican Party says Democrats should be worried following Tuesday’s Massachusetts Senate election in which a Republican won the seat held by Sen. Ted Kennedy for 46 years.

Reince Priebus said Wednesday that Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts reflects an unhappiness with the agendas of both President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress.

He said Democrats running for re-election in Wisconsin this year, including Sen. Russ Feingold and congressmen Steve Kagen, Ron Kind and Dave Obey should “watch their backs.”

Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate said the Brown win is a wake-up call. But Tate said he remains confident in the Democrats running in Wisconsin and doesn’t believe any of them need to change what they’re doing.

  1. Party affiliation has got very little to do with it. Let’s not forget this IS Mass., still a major Democrat strong-hold. This was and is entirely issue\agenda oriented. Rest assured, if they had a candidate that vowed to rein in this out of control spending, versus just another mouthpiece of the current regime, they would have won in a landslide.
    Good people from each party are coming to realize, understand, and will not tolerate any more of the lies, the radical agenga being pushed down our throats, and the extreme growth in the size and scope of government.
    We have short memories: much of these same perceptions were held against the Republicans for the past many years prompting the massive Democrat victories in ’08.
    It’s NOT the party…it’s the idealogy and agenda.
    If a ‘Party’ has anything to do with it, it’s that we don’t want to allow ourselves to become a Socialist party.
    That said…yes, the Democrats everywhere are in jeopardy…as long as they continue to toe the company line.
