How does race shape up without Cullen?
Some residents will never forgive state Sen. Tim Cullen of Janesville for running to Illinois with other Democrats to stall Gov. Scott Walker’s bill that erased most collective bargaining rights for most public employees.
Does he deserve further criticism for walking away from a likely Walker recall election before it begins? In December, Cullen announced his intentions to run if petitioners gathered enough signatures to force a recall. On Wednesday, he announced that he’d changed his mind.
Cullen says he got a lukewarm reception from unions. Are you surprised?
Cullen also says he didn’t think he could raise the $1 million to $2 million he believed he’d need just to survive a likely Democratic primary. What does that say about our elections?
And without Cullen in the race, what does that say about the likely field of Democratic contenders who want to see Walker gone?
We’ll share our perspectives in our editorial Friday.
