"Holperin Campaign: Republican Party cuts Lussow loose?

For More Information: (715) 891-1412

The Republican Party of Wisconsin has filed an open records request with State Senator Jim Holperin (D-Eagle River) in an apparent attempt to show a political connection between him and declared GOP candidate Robert Lussow.

The request sought “all records of communication between (Holperin)…and Robert Lussow or any records mentioning Robert Lussow.”

“Clearly the Republican Party was hoping to find evidence of some sort of political collusion between me and Bob Lussow, apparently to discredit him as a candidate,” Holperin said. “Instead, all they got was evidence of a professional, working relationship between a State Senator and a County Board Chair.”

Holperin said records show he has worked with Lussow on historic preservation issues related to renovation of the Lincoln County Courthouse, legislation regarding the spring elections, efforts to get the state to build a freeway off-ramp north of Merrill, and other issues."

“Seeking information to connect me to Lussow suggests an effort by the Republican Party to strengthen the self-proclaimed far right tea party candidate, Kim Simac,” said Holperin. “I guess the RPW has abandoned its policy of not favoring candidates in a primary, at least in this race, because it seems to be working hard to determine the outcome of their own primary contest before voters even go to the polls.”

I know who I'm voting for.

Simac for State Senate.
