Think Julie Lassa’s not tough enough? Think again.
Yesterday, it was announced that State Senator Julie Lassa (D-Stevens Point) would be running for Congress in the 7th Congressional District. It remains to be seen if she will be the consensus candidate for the Democrats and I can tell you that everyone is still getting used to the idea. There is also a lot of work to gearing up a new campaign and almost none of it is done yet.
I like Julie Lassa and I’ve always thought she had the best fundraisers of all. Her family would make turkeys and pies and we would consume them together at Iverson Park in Stevens Point, washing it all down with Point beer. I hope we do it again soon. Julie Lassa is everything that’s good about politics and people who serve. You can’t help but like her.
But she’s not naive, either. And for those who would like to take a little trip down Memory Lane to the dirty little campaign that she rose above to become a state senator, here’s an interesting piece that will take you there:
It’s all coming back to you now, isn’t it? No matter what happens in November, it’s a mid-term race for Julie, so it’s just a question of which capital city she will find herself in come January: Madison or Washington. It’s going to be interesting.
