I should have addressed this yesterday or the day before. The Dane County Democratic Party endorsed Analiese Eicher for supervisor in the 5th district of the Dane County Board. Eicher’s sole competitor, Michael Johnson, also attended the County Democrats’ meeting and asked for their endorsement. However, Johnson also announced that he would accept the endorsement of Progressive Dane, which, according to the Democrats’ rules, would make him ineligible for their endorsement.
Nevertheless, some within the caucus motioned for a rule change to allow an exception for Johnson, which was comfortably (but not overwhelmingly) defeated. Afterwards, a large majority of the relatively small group in attendance (100 people at most) voted to endorse Eicher.
