June 13, 2011- Okay, we have a potential game changer in one of the toughest of the Wisconsin recall fights.
GOP state senator Alberta Darling, one of the Dems’ leading recall targets, has been captured on video gushing with praise for Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan, describing him as a “hero,” and exclaiming: “Go Paul Ryan!”
“I’m standing with Ryan — anytime, anywhere,” Darling says.
The video was taken at a Wisconsin fundraiser a few days ago and posted by a local blogger. Dems have been looking for ways to inject Ryan into the recall fights, and Darling has now given them the perfect way to do it:
Asked by an attendee at the fundraiser what she thinks of Ryan’s plan, Darling scoffs at Dem efforts to make Ryan a liability. “They were trying to tie me to Ryan and thought that would be a negative for me,” she says. “I’m standing with Ryan — anytime, anywhere.”
“Go Paul Ryan!” Darling adds. “He’s absolutely a hero!”
