1. I note that Wisconsin is not in the likely category.

The following is my personal opinion. Any errors or mischaracterizations are my own.

1. There is no obvious candidate for office that's in the headlines, except Governor Evers. And we need the Governor right where he is.

2. The local news media is weak. I doubt any of them can be called news leaders, now that the national election is nearly over.

3. The viable blue candidates must have the firm voice and the state wide travel, whoever they turn out to be. Feingold went to villages that nobody else went to. If candidates only go to cities which are over 30,000 population, its no wonder that rural places are red.

4. Blue candidates in Wisconsin need to go to the loud red areas. This means Washington, Ozaukee counties north of Madison (which includes where 500+ vaccine vials were sabotaged, the western suburbs of Waukesha County, and Kenosha, Racine (cough Rittenhouse and more.). If these areas are avoided, the red will say the blue people are chicken. (I would probably agree.)

5. Whoever steps forward will need plenty of armor and plenty of real support from the national leaders. Wisconsin was barely blue in 2020.

6. Among the battleground states of the Electoral College, Wisconsin is one of the 3 weakest, the others being Florida and North Carolina. In the Wisconsin state legislature, its trump red.

I return you now to the general topic of the Senate in 2022.
