|Description||Former Wisconsin Congressman Dave Obey denounced reports that Democratic primary candidate Kathleen Falk plans to step up her attacks on Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett, who currently leads her in the race to replace Gov. Scott Walker. |
Obey, who has endorsed Barrett in the Democratic primary, held a conference call with reporters today and minced no words.
"The candidates do not enhance their chance of winning if they spend the next two weeks in petty sniping," Obey said.
The Barrett campaign organized the conference call to respond to a report in Politico on the Falk campaign's plans to more aggressively criticize Barrett in last two weeks before the May 8 primary.
