Wineke Welcomes Mark Belling to the Democratic Party

DPW Chair Joe Wineke today sent conservative talk show host Mark Belling a Party membership application, following Belling’s pledge to vote Democratic in the upcoming gubernatorial election. Belling said he would vote to re-elect Governor Jim Doyle if 50-1 long-shot racehorse #8 Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby.

“#8 MINE THAT BIRD---If this horse wins, I’ll never bet on another race and will vote for Jim Doyle for reelection,” wrote Belling on his blog.

Mine That Bird won at 50-1 odds. See Belling’s blog post:

Below is the message DPW Chair Wineke sent to Belling today. Attached is Belling’s DPW membership card.

Mr. Belling:

Thank you for your pledge to vote Democratic in the upcoming gubernatorial election. (How about that Kentucky Derby upset?)

I just wanted to let you know that unlike the other side, we are a big tent party that welcomes people of all political leanings – and we are glad to have you. Attached is a DPW membership form. It will cost you $25 to join, but you won’t regret it. We sent Arlen Specter a similar card.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

110 King Street, Suite 203
Madison, WI 53703
