The other day I published a column talking about the absolutely pathetic results out of Milwaukee County and Dane County in the Supreme Court Primary. If we can change leadership in those counties, it may finally give Conservatives a fighting chance at helping Dan Kelly win the Supreme Court race in April and future statewide races.
It’s no surprise to anyone that Republicans and Conservatives have been struggling in statewide races for the past several years. Fortunately for us, not all counties are doing as pathetic as Dane or Milwaukee. It’s because of Waukesha County, the biggest of the ‘WOW’ Counties, that we are even within striking distance. Without it, Wisconsin would be deep blue and not purple.
Tuesday night’s Supreme Court Primary results show that Waukesha County is still doing its part for Wisconsin. Waukesha County numbers for both Conservatives combined came in at 64.35%.
This performance is excellent in an environment that has become increasingly toxic and westward expansion of Leftist ideology. While other counties are slipping, Waukesha is holding steady and poised to grow. In fact, since the November election cycle, ALL of Waukesha County’s State Senators and Represeentatives are now Republican.
Performance matters and the leadership team, spearheaded by Republican Party of Waukesha County Chair, Terry Dittrich, works hard and is consistently thinking outside the box. With that type of CONSISTANT performance, Waukesha County efforts need to be replicated throughout the rest of the state if we want to return to winning these statewide races.
Sadly, like challenges to leadership in Dane and Milwaukee (Rightfully so), there is also an effort to challenge Terry Dittrich in this weekend’s RPWC Caucus.
Why would people be making an effort to knock off one of the most effective Republican Party chairs in the state with one of the most successful track records? Well, I explained in an earlier column, check it out. What I will say here though, is that Terry Dittrich thinks outside the box and challenges the status quo. Frankly, WE NEED MORE OF THAT, NOT LESS.
Let’s not forget the WisRed Initiative and it’s incredible success over several election cycles. This was put in place and executed by Dittrich and his leadership team. No other county in the state can boast about such a successful track record.
If it were not such a success, some former political candidates would not be chompling at the bit to take over in Waukesha so they can brag the success in their own future political aspirations. But I digress.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
It makes zero sense to change the leadership team in the Republican Party of Waukesha County. Especially in such a toxic election cycle where control of the Wisconsin Supreme Court is at stake. Literally everything is on the ballot in April.
Dan Kelly has proven that he is a SOLID CONSERVATIVE Justice and we need him back there. He will NEVER see the inside of the high court if removing Terry Dittrich and his leadership team is successful. It creates a level of instability in Wisconsin’s largest Conservative county and puts everything at risk.
On a different note, let’s talk about temperament.
Take Dane County for example, their current leadership is having an absolute childish temper tantrum because their failing team is being challenged. These entitled brats are pulling out all stops to keep their ‘claim’ on the Republican Party of Dane County. People do not fight this hard to keep a volunteer position unless they are receiving something ov value. Who knows?
Just imagine if the Dane County Leadership had fought as hard for Tim Michels as they are doing to keep their volunteer positions.
When Terry Dittrich got word that he was being challenged, he did not have a tantrum, he welcomed it. He knows that he has shown unswerving ability in the role, and he knows that it’s not HIS position and that it must be earned. Every time.
He also has taken great care in making sure the RPWC remains neutral in primaries. Even though he was getting immense pressure to bend the knee to the self-proclaimed ‘chosen one’ in the Governor Primary last year, he took great care to keep the party apparatus COMPLETELY NEUTRAL. He did so in the Supreme Court Primary as well. While success shows leadership, temprement is the mark of a good leader as well. Terry is one of the adults.
Wisconsin needs proven leadership to remain at the helm in Waukesha. Join me in supporting continued success in Waukesha County, support Terry Dittrich and his whole leadership team! There is too much at stake.
Terry Dittrich lives up to the Republican Party of Waukesha County’s motto, he’s absolutely ‘LEADING THE WAY!’
