Wisconsin Democrats have chosen a newcomer to lead their party: Sheboygan businesswoman and community activist Martha Laning.
It was only last year that Laning became an official member of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. But she capitalized on her outsider status at a time when Democratic activists, reeling from a string of recent, high-profile defeats at the polls and in the halls of the state Capitol, are eager for change.
I see that the Democrats have chosen ideology over experience or competence. That bodes well for the future of Wisconsin.
