Eric Hovde disappointing

It's disappointing to see Washington, DC hedge fund manager Eric Hovde launch an extremely dishonest and desperate attack against Tommy today.  We didn't expect this level of dishonesty at the very moment Republicans are rallying together on behalf of Governor Scott Walker and our embattled GOP state senators.
Perhaps Eric Hovde is using this attack to hide the fact that he was a donor to Democrat Jim Doyle, who used Hovde's money to smear and defeat our Republican nominee Mark Green.
As a donor to Jim Doyle, who really knows what Hovde stands for?
Or maybe Hovde is feeling the heat for siding with Tammy Baldwin when he called for higher taxes on job creators during a recession like the Buffett Rule.
"And then you look over on the tax side. Look, I have no problem with me getting charged higher taxes. I've been blessed in my life."  -Eric Hovde (CNBC March 12, 2009)

Or maybe Hovde is on the attack because he's been living in Washington, DC for the last 25 years.   Back home in Wisconsin, people know that Tommy cut taxes 91 times - eliminated the inheritance tax, abolished the gift tax, cut income taxes three times and delivered the biggest property tax in state history.  Tommy's aggressive tax cuts and reforms jumpstarted Wisconsin's economy and helped create 740,000 new jobs...putting families back to work and letting them keep more their hard-earned money.
But there are two things we do know about Eric Hovde; his campaign rhetoric doesn't match what he's been doing the last 25 years as a Washington, DC insider.  And we now know that Hovde intends to run a dishonest campaign.
Keep up the fight...and remember to keep making calls and knocking on doors for Governor Walker.
