JB Van Hollen Gets Into Bucher's Face

Happened to see the new sign yesterday while driving:

Not only does Van Hollen have a sign outside the GOP office on Les Paul Parkway, he has enlisted a well-known group of local supporters, including former lieutenant governor Margaret Farrow and former Tommy Thompson adviser James Klauser.

Bucher doesn't think Van Hollen has much support in Waukesha County.

"He has no name recognition or base in Waukesha County," said Bucher

But there are some inconvenient facts:

...Jack MacDonough, a resident of Chenequa...State Rep. Scott Gunderson...Rep. Don Pridemore (R-Hartford)...and Margaret Farrow, Van Hollen's campaign treasurer.

Bucher says it's all "insider" stuff:

"If there's a political insider in this race, it's not me," Bucher said. "J.B's father was a state legislator, and it's old time politics that is running this race. If it's go along to get along, I'm not your guy. We can't please everybody."

All I know is that JB VanHollen can really shoot a .40cal.
