MADISON, WI – Luther G. Alderson III began his political career in 1954 following a victorious campaign for the state comptroller of Wisconsin and only two years later was voted in as a U.S. senator. He has represented Wisconsin since 1956 with a steady track record of progressive voting and no nonsense campaigning. Following several strokes, Senator Alderson was confined to a wheelchair but continued his political duty for another decade. Early this morning his family announced that during last night he passed peacefully in his sleep and is expected to embark on one final campaign to wrap his political career. Jenny Alderson, great-granddaughter of Luther spoke proudly, “he was a great man and I believe the voters will remember that come November.”
Funeral arrangements have been scheduled for next week to coincide with the release of several television commercials endorsing the senator for a final term. The ceremony is expected to be solemn, however, an event has been planned for the local media. As Mr. Alderson’s casket will be lowered into the ground, 3000 balloons have been scheduled to be released donning his famous slogan “six more years.” The late senator is running unopposed and following his final term his seat is expected to be filled by his wife Sarah. Sarah, who passed in 1998, is best remembered for her sly wit and canny sense of fashion.
