When will Molly McGartland finally pay off her $11,000 judgment to Marquette University?

Back in 2010, I wrote about the 11,534.43 judgment against Molly McGartland, who at the time was the lone Republican challenger to Democratic State Rep. Chris Sinicki. At the time, I pointed out the hypocrisy of McGartland claiming in a literature piece and on her website to be a “fiscal conservative” when she couldn’t take [...]

Salon: The most important money in politics race this year

What’s the most importance race this year for those who want to see outside money banished from politics? Matt Stoller of Salon thinks it’s the New York gubernatorial race pitting establishment Democrat Andrew Cuomo against constitutional law professor Zephyr Teachout.

Can the Democratic Party return to its populist roots?

It’s an odd question. Unlimited corporate [...]

Desperation is a stinky cologne, and Amar Kaleka’s campaign stinks to high heaven

Earlier today I got this email in my inbox from Amar Kaleka, one of the two Democrats vying to unseat Republican Rep. Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s first Congressional district.

If Kaleka’s email is to be believed, fellow Democrat Rob Zerban refused to debate him, thus depriving Democratic voters the opportunity to hear the candidates [...]

Chris Moews: Sheriff David Clarke is a “sideshow” (VIDEO)

Watch for yourselves.

Some thoughts on Justin Moralez’s most recent campaign finance report

Last week I wrote about the fundraising efforts of the three Republicans vying for the honor of losing to incumbent Democratic State Rep. Christine Sinicki. As I noted in my report, not only did Cudahy Alderman Justin Moralez end the reporting period with a cash balance of just $635.29, but he also had two expenditures [...]

Democratic establishment-preferred candidate in 17th Senate district lags in fundraising

It looks like 17th State Senate district candidate Pat Bomhack, the hand-picked choice of State Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson and the Democratic establishment, is having some problems raising money. In April, after being urged by Senate Democratic leadership to abandon his second bid for state Assembly, Pat Bomhack declared his candidacy for the 17th [...]

Inside the numbers: the money race in the 20th Assembly district

As I mentioned in another post, Monday night was the deadline for campaigns across Wisconsin to file their campaign finance reports for the period spanning from January to July, and so I’ve been like a kid on Christmas morning.

Given my interest in the race in the 20th Assembly district, where three Republicans are vying [...]

Mary Burke pulls ahead of Gov. Scott Walker in very close Marquette poll

The newest Marquette University poll came out today, and having seen the results, it’s no wonder Gov. Scott Walker has unleashed a barrage of negative attack ads against Democratic frontrunner Mary Burke. Among likely voters, Burke led Walker, 47% to 46%.

While those numbers are still well within the Marquette poll’s margin of error (+ [...]

Scott Walker’s flip-flop on outsourcing

Back in 2012, Gov. Scott Walker shared his thoughts about what he thought of President Barack Obama’s attacks on his GOP challenger, Mitt Romney, over the issue of outsourcing.

At the time, Walker made it clear that he felt President Obama was attacking Romney on outsourcing to distract voters from President Obama’s poor job performance, [...]
