A Coronation.

WHBY out of Appleton had a story today that John Gard has been selected by the bigs in the Republican Party to run for the open 8th District Representative Seat. Rick Wiley out of the Republican Party of Wisconsin confirmed that to be the case. With Dick Cheney coming to fundraise for John Gard it was obvious.

I have always said whoever runs for an office is more the business of the political party than anyone elses. I guess anyway one looks at it the party bigs are choosing John Gard. Unfortunately, I am concerned John Gard's party affiliation is more in the Government party than the Republican party.

I guess with the Democrats placing so much emphasis on winning this seat it will naturally draw attention from the Republican Party as well.
