What really sets Adam Neylon apart is that he was a member of a Republican Leadership staff that authored two bills in the last legislative session. Adam helped to balance the $3.6 Billion budget deficit, improve the state business climate and put Wisconsin on the right path moving forward, as he worked for Assembly Speaker Pro Tem Bill Kramer. No other candidate can claim this and it clearly shows Adam has the experience to represent us. The Primary Election is Tuesday February 19th. If you are a conservative living in the 98th District which includes the northern half of the City of Waukesha, Pewaukee, Sussex and a part of Lisbon, do the right thing and vote. You can’t go wrong voting for the “Best” candidate, Adam Neylon.

As usual, Keith is right. The fact is it took a lot of Republicans a lot of hard work to make sure the party lap dog Belling barked when he was told to and got him the info from the divorce papers. And if Neylon works for Kramer, we know he will obey our orders too and do as he's told for whom feeds him money. And it means we also know it means we can trust him to uphold our party platform to make sure not one person is inhibited from getting any gun they please. Neylon '13!

I haven't seen a play on my REAL name like "Keith Worst" since I was in 5th grade. Since they hide behind a screen name while I stand behind my own and they make childish accusations while I use facts, it is apparent that "Worst" is NOT smarter than a 5th grader.

Jeanne Tarantino’s opponents are all good Republican men each bringing various skills and affiliations to the race. However, none have the exceptional state government experience that Jeanne has nor do they enjoy the strong endorsements in Waukesha County and beyond. “Jeanne Tarantino is a hard-working, sensible leader we can trust to make sure law enforcement has the tools we need to keep Waukesha County safe.” - Waukesha D.A. Brad Schimel. Jeanne’s hard working ethic (check out her “Meeting Supporters in Pewaukee” video on her website http://www.tarantinoforassembly.com/); her experience and the support she has garnered supercedes any of her opponents and speaks volumes of the quality of her candidacy! Your vote for Jeanne Taratino, on February 19, 2013, is important to you, your district and the state!

"--Tarantino is a hard-working, sensible leader we can trust to make sure law enforcement has the tools we need to keep Waukesha County safe.” That's al fine and good; The road to hell is also paved with good intentions. I want to know which candidate understands that we are a Constitutional Republic, Understands that Smart Growth is Local Agenda 21, has the guts to say no to gay (sodomite) marriage, and will defend a fellow Republican when he speaks o "legitimate rape".
