A Note About The New WisconsinConservatives.com

This isn’t how this was supposed to launch.

Early this year I acquired this website, courtesy of decades-long grassroots activist Bob Dohnal. There was to be a fantastic re-launch that was carefully plotted, shepherding the resources of my company to do so, that included scripted videos, organized podcasts, and writing from a carefully curated stable of writers and contributors. But as the company grew and expanded, there just wan’t the time.

Now that Trump is the nominee, not having time isn’t a luxury I’m able to indulge. If Wisconsin is to keep Ron Johnson in the Senate and, perhaps more importantly, protect majorities in the legislature, the grassroots ground game needs to start organizing now to mobilize an unmatched Get Out The Vote Operation come November 8.

This space will be used to do just that. The ascendancy and nomination of Donald Trump demonstrates that the rest of the country doesn’t have much patience for or interest in conservative thought. But that wasn’t the case here in Wisconsin, when voters impelled Ted Cruz to a victory that kept him in the race, keeping up the fight.

And with that, we now move beyond discussion of the presidency. It’s not irrelevant, but if you want analysis for it, go to any number of other outlets.

We will use this space to talk about our grassroots activists, promote our candidates and events, tell their stories, and show the Democrat Party of Wisconsin we mean business. We’re going to show them we will preserve and defend our conservative values and principles implemented under conservative leadership the last five years.

Nor is this a news site. We don’t have the staff to compete with the journalism done at Media Trackers, Right Wisconsin, or Wisconsin Daily Independent, and MacIver Institute, and I don’t want to.

We’ll see what comes of this platform. If you have ideas, send them to me. I’ll do my best to keep this moving and shaking with new content and maybe call in some favors to see what we can turn this into over the next weeks and months.

This will have been a successful experiment if turnout in November for Republicans exceeds national averages because we took the step to show the self-ostracized there are still great options down-ticket.
