Winners & Losers Wisconsin Edition

You already know the main winners and losers of yesterday’s Wisconsin primary. Here are a few that got overlooked.

Losers

Ann Coulter

 

Corey Lewandowski – Donald Trump Campaign Manager

“The battery charge Lewandowski is faced with is punishable by up to one year in jail, one year probation and a $1,000 fine. Simple battery, or touching or striking a person without permission, is a misdemeanor charge unless it is a repeat offense, according to state statutes.

 

Ben Carson – Advisor of some sort to Donald Trump. Endorses his preferred candidate by admitting “He has some major defects, there’s no question about it…”

 

Sarah Palin – Another Trump helper.

“Career politicians, Palin said , are having “this awesome awakening, the shifting and sifting and the exposing of this rabid bite for them to hang on to any kind of relevancy and to hang on to their gravy train.”

What??!!


Winners

Wisconsin’s cheese industry – Cheese goes best with whine. There was a lot of whine.

 

Governor Scott Walker – Didn’t hold out until the last day. Didn’t just endorse but hit the trail.

 

Several Wisconsin Radio Hosts – Champions of the Conservative cause day in and day out. And then when the eyes of the nation were on them they doubled down and continued the fight.

 

Heidi Cruz –  She took the slings and arrows of the other side and remained classy. She was baited and could have gone mean and nasty against the opposition but she didn’t bite.

 

Lindsey Graham –  Policy-wise he’s not a favorite senator of most of us here.  Lately though he has shown more backbone supporting the anti-Trump movement than most of his colleagues. I realize his name looks odd in this section but am giving credit where it’s due and note he has congratulated Cruz on yesterday’s win. Something Donald Trump has forgotten to do.
