From Paul Bucher's gracious concession speech after getting crushed by J.B. van Hollen in the Republican AG primary:
"We were right on the issues - you know it and I know it," he told supporters. "We just ran short of money. And you know, that's disappointing that elections can be bought. And I wish J.B. well, but, you know, dumping that kind of money in the race in the last two weeks tells me Wisconsin's for sale."
Guess that answers this question.
And remember kids: steer clear of Merton for a while.
