This was a tough year for PD. It experienced double assault from the Wisconsin State Journal and the Democratic Party. The Journal thinks they lost big lost night, but did they?
They ran candidates in 8 races, most of them competitive, and won 6. One of the races they lost went to a pretty liberal Dem, so who knows. The other race was only won because Democratic Party insiders used the Democratic Party name to endorse, in deed if not in name, the libertarian candidate.
It is beyond any reasonable stretch of the imagination to spin this as a loss for Progressive Dane. The only seats they lost had overt or covert Democratic support.
