5th State Senate District candidate Jim Sullivan (D) did a whole lot better at fund-raising during the last reporting period than the very, very conservative incumbent Tom Reynolds (R) did. Reynolds' issues -- he says he is pro-life and pro-death penalty and pro-bigger-freeways-so-some-people-can-drive-85-mph and pro-virginity-til-you-are-married -- apparently appeal to a fairly narrow base.
He is also pretty much anti-Milwaukee, which is unfortunate because his district includes part of the city.
Sullivan is a moderate Democrat, a lawyer, a Wauwatosa alderman, and a member of the Navy Reserve.
Reynolds is a West Allis printer and a Republican nut job.
