Madison — State Senate President Mike Ellis dropped out of his re-election race Friday, two days after a secret recording was released revealing him discussing setting up an illegal political action committee to attack his challenger.
"I don't fit in anymore," he said in an interview. "There isn't room for independent thinking and compromise...There's no room on the street anymore for people to walk down the middle of the road."UPDATE: The infamous James O'Keefe was behind this recording and my guess is that he did it because Ellis isn't sufficiently conservative.
