Randy Hopper Causes GOP Worry

Sen. Randy Hopper HQ in Oshkosh?
Update: GOP seeks to delay elections, as the GAB moves scheduled election date to July 19.

Sen. Randy Hopper (Fond du Lac) should do the “the right thing” and not run in the Recall Election, said GOP radio host [and effectively a GOP operative] Charlie Sykes last week.

Sykes cited GOP polling that has Hopper polling poorly in the 18th Senate District recall election scheduled for July 12.

A source in the Democratic Party close to the Hopper recall effort said their polling confirms Sykes' report.

From xoff:, in a report to subscribers, says there's a GOP movement underway to get State Sen. Randy Hopper out of the recall election for his seat.

Hopper, beset by personal problems as well as political ones, looks like a dead duck. He's being challenged by Jessica King, who came within an eyelash of beating him in 2008.

Hopper reportedly insists he's not getting out, but if Gov. Scott Walker were to dangle a higher-paying job in front of him he might have a change of heart. He could also face a primary, but no challenger has surfaced yet and that gets messy.

Rabid talker Charlie Sykes says Hopper should do 'the right thing' and step aside in the race because he's polling poorly
