I endorse Greendale Village President John Hermes in this Tuesday’s special election to replace Jeff Stone in the 82nd Assembly District. From JSONLINE:
Hermes, 56, running as a Democrat, has served as Greendale village president for eight years and was a village trustee for another nine years. Hermes also serves on the Milwaukee Metropolitan [...]

On November 19, voters in the 21st Assembly District will have an opportunity to elect a candidate who isn’t bought and paid for by special interests, and that candidate is Elizabeth Coppola.
The special election for the 21st Assembly District can be the first look at the 2014 Legislative elections…so it is imperative that we elect a Democrat to fill the seat vacated by Mark Honadel.
So without hesitation, and I am sure no surprise to the readers of Blogging Blue, I endorse Emerge alum, Elizabeth Coppola [...]
The recent polling out of Marquette University should give hope to those who want to oust Scott Walker in 2014. The polling is about two weeks old and shows that the race is a statistical tie. Mary Burke, the only declared candidate, polls at 45% compared to Walker’s 47%.

This is scathing…. Nonetheless, the time I spent covering McAuliffe—who became head of the Democratic Party during George W. Bush’s first term—has left me dumbfounded that he (according to the polls) is poised to become the next governor of Virginia.
Allow me to explain. McAuliffe represents an unseemly slice of Washington. His primary role in [...]
My favorite new blog? Bob Braun’s Ledger. Though it deals with issues of importance in New Jersey, it’s well-written and definitely worth a read, as shown in this entry about newly-reelected Republican Gov. Chris Christie. Chris Christie is a dangerous man.
But, gee whiz, guys and gals, wouldn’t it just be totally and awesomely cool [...]
The big news out of Virginia today is Virginia is experiencing “blue shift.” A state that was once reliably red has become increasingly competitive for the Democratic Party. Part of it is because the northern part (closest to D.C.) is becoming very blue, but part of it is because the GOP still rewards candidates who [...]
