Mark Neumann's Stimulus Problem

February 3, 2012

Not the story former Wisconsin Rep. Mark Neumann's Senate campaign wants to see, as he runs as a conservative who stands against the stimulus. The AP:

The leading tea party-backed Republican candidate running for Wisconsin's open U.S. Senate seat who has also been a longtime critic of a federal stimulus program received more than $80,000 in stimulus grants for his own solar energy company.

And another renewable energy company run by former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann signed a letter in November urging congressional leaders to keep the incentives flowing.

Neumann pushes back in the story, arguing that the grant began as a Bush administration-era tax credit. It's nonetheless fodder for his GOP opponents as he runs as a limited-government conservative with the backing of Sen. Jim DeMint and the Club for Growth.
