Voting against Dan Knodl or Voting Dem to ‘Prove a Point’ is CHILDISH, the Ends Simply do not Justify the Means

It’s well known that I loudly and proudly supported Janel Brandtjen over Dan Knodl for the special election in Wisconsin’s 8th State Senate District. It was a spirited campaign throughout, but overall the candidates stayed above the fray. Unfortunately, others didn’t.

If you recall, I wrote an article about Robin Vos, Devin LeMahieu, Liz Cheney, and Adam Kinzinger teaming up and spearheading an effort to spend tens of thousands of dollars to defeat Brandtjen. Sadly, the effort succeeded and Brandtjen was indeed defeated.

Since her loss, Brandtjen stepped up and has displayed incredible class by putting her support behind Dan Knodl. This was even after what ‘Team Vos’ pulled and Brandtjen had every right to lash back, but she didn’t. TRUE CLASS!

She has been cordial and has also had joint public appearances as well. But then again, I would expect nothing less from Janel Brandtjen because she is one of the few genuine statesmen we have in the legislature. It’s what grown-ups do.

Yes, I am a bit unhappy that ‘Team Vos’ succeeded in their draconian plot to interfere and this will not soon be forgotten, but yet here we are. In the end, right or wrong, more people voted for Dan Knodl and he won. Now the thousands of Brandtjen supporters in the 8th District must play the hand they have been dealt and not the one some wish they had.

Knodl now has a major battle on his hands against Liberal Extremist Jodi Habush Sinykin. She enjoys a unified front and major financial backing from out of state Leftists. For both Republicans and Democrats, this is a must-win because his seat gives Republicans in the Senate a supermajority with impeachment powers.

Of course, this only matters if LeMehiew grows a pair and uses this power, and he has yet to show any backbone, but we have to try. Dan Knodl has promised to spearhead those efforts if needed. We will hold his feet to the fire. Stay tuned.

No, I am not saying go on an impeachment spree, but it’s nice to have the power if needed.

Unfortunately, a couple of loud Brandtjen supporters are acting like spoiled children. Today on the Mark Belling show, Belling referred to one of those voices. It’s sad, and eerily similar attitude to last year and that cost the state dearly. But that’s a different subject.

Now, some have even gone so far as to suggest voting for Habush. What? Voting for someone who is the exact opposite of everything you stand for is illogical, and frankly, CHILDISH.

For many of us, Knodl is not the ‘ideal’ Republican, Brandtjen would have been so much better on so many levels, yet, as I said before, we have to play the hand we are dealt and not the one we wish we had.

Voting against Dan Knodl or voting for Habush in order to ‘prove a point’ of how ‘perfect’ of a Conservative you are is CHILDISH; the ends simply do not justify the means!

Allowing another extremist Democrat into the Senate is NOT a good option, it’s dangerous. And let’s be realistic, we also need protection should the unthinkable happen and we lose the Supreme Court race. I am hopeful Dan Kelly will prevail, but there is also a possibility he will not. What then?

Besides, let’s not forget, Janel Brandtjen is still our champion in the Assembly. WE STILL HAVE HER TO LEAD THE WAY.

As I said, this is a must-win. Besides, getting out to vote for Knodl also has the added effect of getting people out to vote for Dan Kelly. We have a legitimate chance here and EVERY VOTE MATTERS ACROSS THE STATE.

Janel Brandtjen is showing incredible class, because she gets it. The 8th Senate District should follow her lead and VOTE FOR DAN KNODL, because so much depends on it! Like literally everything.
