The fix is in

Wisconsin is back in the top 10 states where the governorship is most likely to change parties in November, according to The Spin, a Washington Post blog that rates the races.

After dropping from 9th to 11th, Wisconsin's back at No. 9, apparently because of a successful GOP spin campaign. Seth Zlotocha has more.

UPDATE: The Fix incorrectly says:
(a new RGA ad takes [Doyle] to task for the guilty plea of an aide who admitted to rigging bids for state travel contracts).
There was no guilty plea and no admission of any bid-rigging.

Not to mention Thompson was hardly a Doyle "aide."

Wishful thinking here. The latest Rasmussen poll shows Green has pulled with 3 points despite the negatives ads that Doyle has been running.

X I'm more than willing to call out Van Hollow for his ties to Hurtgen and other possible curuptions why can't you admit that Doyle is a total sleaze? The guy is worse than Tommy was, I do think that Doyle has better hair than Tommy (did you see Tommy's recent self die job- what a nut), Doyle is so corrupt he makes a two bit Chicago Alderman look like George Washington.

Mark Green openly defies the law by refusing to abide by the EB's ruling, but Jim Doyle is a "total sleaze." Amazing.

The accusations leveled at Doyle are exactly that -- accusations, nothing more. Not one shred of "evidence" (and I use that term loosely, since there was so little of it) produced at Thompson trial implicated him. Zero.

The PSC accusations are similarly tenuous. No evidence has been produced to show that Doyle prevailed upon the PSC to change its vote.

These charges, which cast doubt on not only the Governor's integrity but that of members of the PSC, are especially scurrilous. Before you smear someone with an accusation of wrongdoing in this matter, you might want to actually read the PSC's rulings and try to fathom why the board members changed their votes.

True, a Republican U.S. Attorney from the Fox Valley has vaguely stated -- in an election year in which another Fox Valley Republican is running against Doyle -- that the Governor is "under investigation." That pretty much speaks for itself.

Hey, redvest: Tommy wrote the book on backdoor deals and just plain crooked, quid pro quo government. No one else even close. Toxic Tom shall retire the title.
