The Journal picks Jim Sullivan for 5th Senate district seat.

Hi folks,

And an easy choice he is, too.

Tom Reynolds is a hard-right conservative in a district that has long skewed moderate. But it's what he has done outside the Senate chamber that attracts the most attention - and the most disdain. He has asked job applicants for their views of heaven or whether they're divorced. He has attended a rabidly anti-gay conference on "homo-fascism." He has considered advancing outlandish ideas that often are related to a personal experience - like the idea to create a private autobahn parallel to I-94. It came after he was pulled over for speeding.

But it's not only Reynolds' bizarre behavior that makes Jim Sullivan the better pick. He would be anyway. Sullivan, an attorney and Wauwatosa alderman, is a moderate on a variety of issues, including health care, in which he supports allowing citizens to buy into the same plan that legislators have and business pools to lower costs. He supports school choice but not expansion. He supports a get-tough-on-crime approach and has been endorsed by a number of police associations.

Seriously. Here's the data on Jim.

For heavens sake, help vote Mr. Reynold's out of office where he can only goof up his own life and not the taxpayers'.

We'll work on Glenn Grothman next.
