MADISON — State Senator Leah Vukmir‘s name regularly comes up as the third choice to challenge Senator Tammy Baldwin after GOP golden-boy Rep Sean Duffy dropped out and Sheriff David Clarke waffles. And if anyone wondered where Leah Vukmir’s priorities lie: look for the powerful D.C. elite.

Displaying her strong desire to enter the Washington establishment, Vukmir proudly retweeted a photo linked arm in arm with D.C. lobbyist Mark Smith.

The next day, D.C. Leah ran into a bunch insiders familiar with the D.C. beltway crowd that she had to share:

And this was just her first two days in D.C. courting insider support.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Brandon Weathersby reacted, saying “It’s pretty clear D.C. Leah’s priorities lie with the powerful D.C. elite. D.C. Leah is earning her name by courting support from the Washington establishment, rubbing elbows with lobbyists, long-time Washington insiders and basking in the D.C. limelight and forgetting Wisconsin in the process.”
