I wrote yesterday that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was scheduled to attend a fundraiser on behalf of gubernatorial candidate Scott Walker last night, and at the time, I wrote Gingrich was expected to endorse Walker’s campaign.

The AP is reporting the Minnesota Supreme Court has ruled 5-0 that Democrat Al Franken be certified as the winner of the state’s long-running Senate race.

At issue is the position by the city that the Lake Bluff Apartments were built illegally and in violation of zoning [...]
Governor Jim Doyle signed the state budget into law today, making this budget the firs since 1977 to have been completed before the start of the new fiscal year. Partisan differences have typically led to budget delays past the start of the fiscal year, but Democratic control of the Assembly, Senate, and Governor’s mansion [...]
