Hintz on Petri

The local Democrat entourage showed up in a New York Times piece on the upcoming Petri race. According to the piece:

Hintz argued that Petri, despite his seniority, has long been overlooked for leadership positions in his party. “He’s out of touch with Republicans,” Hintz contended. “He’s a 1979 Republican. He comes from an era where parties worked together more.”

Hintz also offered that a Petri retirement can’t be ruled out, saying, “Anyone that has been a career politician as long as he has, you hear rumors.”
