GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - November 2014 is still too far away for most of us to even think about.
But both major political parties are already staking their ground for what promises to be some huge elections in 21 months.
The State Republican Party will hold grand opening celebrations Saturday for four campaign offices in Waukesha, Madison, Green Bay, and Eau Claire. Field directors will set up county operations, and develop outreach efforts to potential voters.
Last week, state Democrats said it would hire political directors in Eau Claire, La Crosse, and Green Bay. They said they’ll need to work overtime, to overcome the apparent advantage Republicans created for themselves when they re-drew the state’s legislative and congressional districts.
The GOP, meanwhile, hopes to keep making gains.
Republican Governor Scott Walker is up for re-election in 2014 – and Democrats hope to cut into the GOP’s majorities in both houses of the state Legislature and the Wisconsin’s U.S. House delegation.
