In case you missed it, Leinenkugel is a serious loser. He drops out of Senate race after receiving 0.5% of the vote at the GOP convention.
But nobody is as big of a loser as Terrence Wall, who actively campaigned for the convention's endorsement, saying he had contacted multiple people. He received 18 percent of the vote.
Ron Johnson, in contrast, said he "hoped not to get the endorsement" and received 64 percent of the vote. Maybe he can "hope not to beat Feingold" and win the whole damn thing. He is now the man to beat in the GOP primary.
