If you were hot on the idea of getting a Green Bay Packer in the governor’s mansion, we are sorry to say that isn’t happening. At least not with Mark Tauscher.
A grassroots effort popped up earlier this week pushing Tauscher to run against Scott Walker for governor in 2018. Tausch, who we should point out has no actual political experience, isn’t into the idea.
“It was a really nice gesture, I really appreciate, you know, when people do nice things,” Tauscher said on his radio show. “It went from that to then, ‘I may be thinking about running.’ That’s when I was like, ‘Wow. It’s amazing how quick things can spread.”
Where an idea or opinion becomes fact as soon as you can snap your fingers.
Anyway, this is probably a wise move for Tauscher at this point. Could we see a former Packers and Wisconsin Badgers player winning office in Wisconsin?
Of course. You’re kidding yourself if you think everyone would be concerned about actual issues in such a scenario. A lot of people would come out just to vote for “that guy who played for the Packers.”
I would honestly put any former Packer’s odds at 50/50 against Walker, with maybe the exception of Randy Wright.
Who still lives in the state other than Tausch?
LeRoy? You want a run at it? You’re a businessman.
Shit, if Bart lived there, it wouldn’t even be a contest. I’d handicap that at 80 percent for Starr, less than 20 for Walker, and yes, I know about the health problems, but remember, Ronald Reagan once ran this country. That guy sure as shit wasn’t all there.
