Breaking News: Dan Kapanke Is Now Co-Sponsor Of Constitutional Carry Bill SB93
Due to local activist pressure from the TEA Party in La Crosse Dan Kapanke has now said he will become a co-sponsor of SB93! I have personally heard stories of Dan Kapanke calling a local TEA Party activist on the phone the last two days to explain his position. After a good amount of back and forth with Senator Kapanke he finally was convinced that the right thing to do was get behind Sen. Pam Galloway's Constitutional Carry Bill SB93. Its nice to see the politicians listening to constituents and not the "political experts" who no doubt said a non permit concealed carry bill was to extreme. I think Sen. Kapanke has made a good political decision here as well. This summer's election is going to be about who turns out their base. Most people are not going to be thinking about voting come July 12th, expect for the hardcore activist base on both sides that feel energized by their candidates. Dan Kapanke looks to be doing the opposite of what losing 94th Assembly candidate John Lautz did and Dan is running to energize his base. Lautz was every weak on Second Amendment issues and did not run a campaign that energized the conservative base.
