Paul Soglin Considers Run for Governor

Yes! Run!

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin, reversing his past disavowals of interest in running for governor in 2018, said Saturday that he is considering a bid for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

Soglin said in December that he had “interest” in challenging Walker, who is all but certain to run for a third term as Wisconsin governor.

But Soglin said the surprising appeal of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, particularly in Wisconsin, is part of what changed his mind about a potential governor run.

    Campaign slogan suggestions:

    1.)” I promise to bring Madison values (cesspool) to rest of state.”

    2.) “High taxes for all.”

    3.) “More regulation for all.”

    4.) “I don’t just look 19th century, my policies will take us there.”

    5.) “Elect me and I will put Nord in charge of the WI Global Warming cult.”

    6.) ” This state has it too good, I promise to undo all the prosperity.”

    Those are all sure winners. No charge.

    Nope, you are making stuff up again.  I’m not fan of Soglin, never was.

    No cult, just a preponderance of scientific evidence.

    If you want prosperity, look toward Madison and Dane county.  Lowest unemployment, great opportunities, vibrant culture.  Or look west across the Mississippi from Hudson.

    If you want failure, look at the 250000 new jobs we didn’t get, the most recent new jobs numbers, and the continuing wage stagnation in WI.

    And Kevin, if you want to look at severe failure…look at the fantasy town that white nationalist troll La Reine du Bore purports to run.

    Admit it, you would love to head the WI warming cult.

  5. Le Roi du Nord


    Nope, I’m not into cults like you are.  Unlike you, I don’t admit to things that aren’t true.

    Pretty bold talk from a guy that has not explained his faith in Big Bang and where the gases building up to it came from.

    I can coherently explain my faith. Can you explain your faith?

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    “Coherently” ?  Hah.  Surely you jest…

  8. Paul

    White nationalist trolls have no standing to call out anyone on “coherently.”

  9. Kevin Scheunemann


    I can explain Christianity with more rationality than you can when it comes to the “science” that everything came from nothing.

    You will note you are not up to challenge to explain your godless faith.

  10. Le Roi du Nord


    There is nothing for me to explain, I’m not into cults, priests, prophets, works of fantasy pawned off as the one and only truth.  There, I just explained it.

  11. Paul

    The white nationalist troll does like crosses — mostly for burning in front lawns.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    You did not explain your faith, you denied your faith.

    At least I can be honest about my faith. It’s clear you like to work from a position of dishonesty about your faith and ridicule others shining an honesty light on your fervent false faith.

    Very disappointing.

  13. Le Roi du Nord


    No sense talking sense with you.  As the great John Prine once said, “It don’t make no sense that common sense don’t make no sense no more”.   And you don’t have any sense or any sort.  Have a great day.

  14. Kevin Scheunemann


    You just don’t want to answer the question about how everything can come from nothing in Big Bang theory ….except by faith.

    Why do you need to insult rather than answer the simple question? An objective “man of science” should have no problem answering that.
