Plale to get primary challenge from the left

State Sen. Jeff Plale, D-South Milwaukee, seems likely to get a primary challenge from the left, Eye on Wisconsin reports. Plale, elected in a special election in 2003, just squeaked through a primary then against the more liberal Joel Brennan.

It's a district that runs from Milwaukee's liberal East Side, through Bay View to the more conservative suburbs like South Milwaukee and Cudahy. So, whatever you do, someone's unhappy. Plale's votes on abortion, concaled carry, and stem cell research have made him a target for a challenge from the left.

Jim McGuigan of Watchdog Milwaukee had written about the challenge earlier, and, somewhat surprisingly, comes to Plale's defense.
