MORNINGMARTINI.COM EDITORIAL BOARD ENDORSES STEPHEN SMITH FOR DPW CHAIR
(La Crosse, WI) – Today the editorial board of the political blog MorningMartini.com endorsed Stephen Smith for Chairman of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
“Stephen Smith is the only candidate whose talents and vision will transform the Democratic Party of Wisconsin into the kind of organization we hope it to be,” said publisher Nik Nelson. “Steve has for his entire political career practiced the political prowess we look for Democrats to exemplify.”
Morning Martini has established a unique niche in covering Wisconsin’s political landscape since its launch in fall 2013, and was one of the first online-only publishing platforms to give Mary Burke’s candidacy the attention it deserved.
“When I think back on all the mistakes Mary Burke’s campaign made, I can’t help but wish Steve had also been there as a resource for her and for the party,” said Chris Rochester, editor in chief. “Steve’s lessons learned from losing close elections to young talent sets an important precedent for the future of the DPW, and I look forward to him being the face of Democratic politics in this state, and not just for the sake of our website.”
Delegates at the Democratic Convention in Milwaukee will hold a vote for their next chairman on Saturday, June 6.
