Wall Street Journal: Wisconsin’s Field of Democratic Senate Hopefuls Is Lining Up on Left of Biden

The current top tier of Democrats campaigning for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin includes a lieutenant governor, a state treasurer, a county executive and a former Goldman Sachs analyst who is a billionaire’s son. None could be described as centrists.

In a state decided by less than 1 percentage point in the 2020 presidential election—the third-narrowest outcome nationally—six Democrats who have raised the most money so far are all taking positions to the left of President Biden’s.

At candidate forums, liberal heroes like Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont are mentioned by the Wisconsin contenders more frequently than the party’s current national leader and White House occupant.

The contest is one of about a half dozen nationally likely to determine control of the Senate. The incumbent, Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, could benefit from drawing a November opponent too progressive for a state filled with independent voters.

Statement from NRSC Spokeswoman Lizzie Litzow: “If Wisconsin Democrats continue to line up to the Left of Joe Biden and his unpopular leadership, then November will be looking good for Republicans and the American people.”
