Jason “Red” Arnold is back with an epic rant…and it’s a doozy!

In a recent “press release” (and I use that term very loosely), Republican State Senate candidate Jason “Red” Arnold shows a very poor grasp of the fact surrounding the implementation of Act 10, legislation enacted by Republican Gov. Scott Walker and his rubber-stamp Republican-controlled legislature. Here’s Arnold’s assertion: It was a law which stated that [...]

Gov. Scott Walker: using “divide and conquer” to the bitter end

At a campaign appearance today in Pewaukee, Gov. Scott Walker continued the “divide and conquer” rhetoric he’s made a hallmark of his political career. In the tightest race of his political career, Republican Gov. Scott Walker turned up the rhetoric Thursday by saying many voters in the liberal bastion of Madison are driven by anger [...]

New Burke ad: “Tara”

Is Pat Bomhack being outworked in the 17th Senate district?

Earlier this month, Jessie Opoien of the Capital Times had an interesting writeup of the race in the 17th State Senate district, a race that pits Republican State Rep. Howard Marklein against Democrat Pat Bomhack.

BREAKING: AG Van Hollen stricken by sudden bout of decency and common sense

Dom’s Domain: the post-debate breakdown

Over at Dom’s Domain Politics, Dom has an excellent writeup of Friday’s debate between Gov. Scott Walker and challenger Mary Burke, with Dom rightly noting Burke won the debate hands down.

Dan Sebring: conservative majority on U.S. Supreme Court conspiring against Scott Walker

This is bizarre, even for a fringe candidate like Dan Sebring. Republican Dan Sebring, who is running to represent Wisconsin’s 4th District in the House of Representatives, told ThinkProgress he suspects a political motive behind the Supreme Court’s recent ruling putting the state’s voter ID law on hold.

MJS editors wonder: What if we lived in a Wisconsin without Act 10?

This is worth a read… If Walker could travel to that other universe — the one where he negotiates with unions instead of breaking them — here’s what he would find: The budget deficit is closed through negotiated employee concessions, cuts to programs and a little fiscal magic. There are no new taxes. There are [...]

Wisconsin “Jobs Coalition” attacks Democratic Assembly candidate….but not on the jobs issue

Recently the “Jobs First Coalition,” a dark money organization, sent out a nasty mailer attacking Democrat Dana Duncan, who’s running to unseat incumbent Republican State Rep. Scott “CAFO” Krug in the 72nd Assembly district. Because the Jobs First Coalition is registered as a 501(c)4, its funding sources don’t need to be publicly disclosed, but as [...]
