Lt. Gov. candidate Rebecca Kleefisch on Fox & Friends, Sun. 8:45am

Wisconsin has 5 Republican candidates on the ballot for Lt. Governor. Like the office of Vice President, Lt. Gov. is often a position that is overlooked, that is until they are needed to step into the top job! Of Wisconsin's 5 candidates, Rebecca Kleefisch is becoming my favorite; she's conservative, articulate, and seems very capable.

Rebecca Kleefisch will be featured on FOX & Friends news show this Sunday, July 25, 2010, at 8:45am Central Time. She will be joined by CeCe Heil of Tennessee and Julie Parrish of Oregon. All 3 ladies are running for office in their states. They are to discuss "the rising popularity of conservative women - particularly mothers - who are running for office and the electoral success of Sarah Palin's 'Mama Grizzlies' ".

"Mama Grizzlies" was a term coined by Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin to describe women--mothers--who like the mother grizzly bear, rises up on her hind legs to protect her cubs. In the political arena, many women get involved in politics because of some issue that affects their children and family. Minnesota Representative Michelle Bachmann fits that description. (Locally, I would call Wisconsin's Rep. Leah Vukmir, who is running against Democrat Jim Sullivan for State Senate, a "Mama Grizzly" too. Vukmir began her involvement in politics on the Wauwatosa School Board because of some issues that affected her family.)

It would seem I am not the only one pulling for Rebecca Kleefisch, she is the top fundraiser in her field. She "raised $141,634.58 in the first six months, 27% more than her nearest competitor."

I am truly humbled by the tremendous outpouring of financial support I have received from every corner of our great state,” said Kleefisch. “I am not a professional politician, I am a parent and small business owner concerned about the direction of our state. I really appreciate the donations I have received from regular folks who have never been involved in a campaign before.

This September and November, it is not enough to just vote for someone with a "R" next to their name. If we are to have any hope of getting our government and government spending under control, we need to elect true conservatives. This is the time to do your homework on the candidates.

If you are unfamiliar with Rebecca Kleefisch, watch her in-depth interview with Jim Schneider of In Focus on April 26, 2010, and visit her website:

I can't believe Leah Vukmir and Rebecca Kleefisch are being compared in the same article. Leah should be offended! Mayor Ross and Brett Davis both have EXPERIENCE, not just rhetoric. Rebecca is NOT for real, she is an empty skirt! I would like to see the work she has done as a "small business owner." If my son puts up a lemonade stand in our front yard on a hot summer day does that make him a small business owner too? Rebecca might have raised the most money, but she does not have the most cash on hand. I hope ALL voters do their homework before voting because the last thing we need is a Lt. Governor with no experience. After all, look what happened with Barbara Lawton.

My comparison of Kleefisch to Vukmir and Bachmann was as a "Mama Grizzley", not in experience as a legislator.

Experience is not my primary criteria for anyone running for office.
Lt. Gov. candidate Brett Davis is experienced in voting for Doyle's 2007-09 budget that included a soybean crusher for his district and raiding of the patient compensation fund. He also is experienced in sponsoring an ethanol mandate bill.

No, I don't want that kind of experience.
"We don't need another RINO in Madison zoo, Front-runner for Lt. Gov. on wrong side of key issues"

I have met Mayor David Ross, and he is experienced and conservative. Ross would be someone I also would consider.

Right now, voters should be learning all they can about the candidates, which is why I posted the opportunity to hear from one I am interested in.

Brett Davis' experience is doing exactly what the voters of Wisconsin don't want: "whatever I need to do to get re-elected."

Voters should consider what type of partner the lt. gov. candidate will make with the governor. Do Gov. Doyle & Lt. Gov Lawton even speak? No wonder we see nothing but puff & fuzz coming out of Lawton's office.

Brett Davis' political experience -- especially in the area of fiscal issues -- are opposite both Republican gubernatorial candidates.

Brett Davis is wrong for the Republican ticket in 2010.

Remember: I can't believe to compared Brett Davis and Rebecca Kleefisch in the see response. Brett Davis's only experience is selling out to Doyle's uncontrolable spending and unconstitutionally stealing of the Patiences comp fund. He is no more a conservative then Doyle,in fact it hard to tell them a part based on his voting record. Rebecca has the values,knowledge and integry that we need in Madison. We have enough RINOs
