Poll

State Senate President Mike Ellis of Neenah has decided not to run for re-election after a tape surfaced with his comments about forming a "superpac"--Good Move or not ?
Good for him to pull out of the race before this gets more embarassing
No--shows weakness , he should stand in and fight
I don't know about this story. I don't care .
He did nothing wrong. Yes, it doesn't look good but he didn't actually form the super pac., he just talked about it.
