Cunsulting Week In Wisconsin 8th

Rhymes With Clowns posts about endorsements in the congressional 8th race. Seems this weeks hot button is in consulting companies.

Here an endorment for Terri McCormick
"an organization set up by Attorneys, Political Consultants, and Marketing professionals. " Rhymes With Clown

Let's see, attorney donations,will we see tort reform, don't think so.

Oh great more political consultants telling us what we should think, say or do. Voters arn't smart enough to think on their own.

No kidding, marketing professionals who will sell you snake oil to cure cancer.

If your going to get endorsements, sounds like the same old Madison, Washington politics to me.

Let's look at Reid Ribble from the post.
"Robert Keller, Chairman and CEO of J. J. Keller & Associates, endorsed Reid Ribble’s campaign for Congress today. Keller heads one of the largest safety and regulatory compliance firms in the nation. J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. is based in Wisconsin."  Rhymes With Clown
From their web site, J. J. Keller & Associates.
Let our nationally recognized Consultants assess and solve your risk management, loss control and compliance challenges." Safety And Regulatory Compliance, DOT And OSHA Workplace Safety Regulations - J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc.

I will somewhat agree with Jeremy on one point.
"While Bob Keller may not be a name well known to many in WI-8, an endorsement from a business owner with ties to the state seems more likely to have an impact than the one that McCormick is highlighting. " Rhymes With Clown

J. J. Keller is located in Neenah and is not in the 8th district.

If you get endorsements from out of district or out of state groups or companies, will elected officials be obligated to "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours".

How about endorsements from companies in the Wisconsin 8th District? Then again, they are only endorsements. It's the voters that will elect our next congressman for the Wisconsin 8th district.
