We need "boots and heels" on the ground

Of course, the boots should be Joe Biden's and the Heels, are Kamala's...

I'm seeing waaaaayyyy too many Trump/Tiffany/Rozar signs and when I went to another community I see the Trump+some other idiot+plus another local idiot signs...

Worse yet I'm seeing a lot of "My Governor is an Idiot" signs popping up along with "Impeach Tony Evers" signs...One on Neceda at the intersection of Hwys 80 and 21 said "Vote for Trump make the Libs cry again".

This may be a minority but they are visible and they are coordinated.

We need Joe and Kamala here to raise some excitement and solidify their support here.

Frankly...these right wingers are beginning to scare me...

close to Necedah. She is a Democrat in a very red area.

I belong to a group that has visited Wisconsin already. Given the covid, I don't know if we are going back. We are sending postcards and we are phone banking.

We are coordinated, too.

I see some local, poorly funded, attempts to organize in the Central part of the State but they are not anywhere near as visible as the diesel pickup trucks (yes, there's more than one) with a Trump Flag, an American Flag and a Confederate flag.

They like to drive around in trucks. They don't do much else.

I don't know what the outcome will be in Wisconsin, but we are working on it.

Republican locals are having to place many signs in a few spots because people do not want them. They have a big sign budget and no where to put them.
