Berlin – Kai Wegner sounds like a meteorologist these days. “The wind is blowing in our faces,” says the CDU top candidate in the race for the Red City Hall. The wind in the face, that is the nationwide trend against the CDU. And of course that is mainly the weak demeanor of Chancellor candidate Armin Laschet. Since the Bundestag and the House of Representatives will be elected at the same time on September 26, this makes it extra difficult for Berliners.
Kai Wegner could say that he knew that beforehand. As is well known, the Berlin regional association, which he chairs, was the first in the spring to speak out in favor of Markus Söder as candidate for chancellor. It didn’t do any good. Now he has to make the most of the situation.
