No doubt there are many happy liberals in Wisconsin tonight. State Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson is stepping down from his post after the Democrats’ poor showing in last week’s elections.
The Milwaukee leader’s decision to give up his post came as Democrats in the Assembly decided to stick with their leader, Rep. Peter Barca […]
On Monday October 13 Rita Wittwer, the wife of former Democratic State Senate candidate Ernie Wittwer, appeared on WORT’s 8 O’clock Buzz to talk about the Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson, the curious circumstances surrounding the recount in the 17th Senate district, as well as her husband’s loss in the Democratic primary in the 17th […]
This is just a little Sunday quickie related to two recent Politifact Wisconsin articles published in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The first one rated Senator Chris Larson’s statement on the projected $1.8 billion shortfall in the as yet proposed 2015 – 2017 budget as FALSE.

Shortly after my original report, Larson snubbed Ernie Wittwer, one of the two Democrats running in the 17th Senate district, at the 2014 Democratic Party of […]
Last week I wrote about how Democratic State Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson had endorsed Pat Bomhack in a contested Democratic primary in the race to replace retiring State Senator Dale Schultz, instead of staying out of the race and letting voters decide on their preferred candidate.
In making his endorsement of Bomhack, Larson opined […]
Not sure how I missed this, but last month Democratic State Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson endorsed the candidacy of Pat Bomhack in the race to succeed retiring State Sen. Dale Schultz, despite the fact that Bomhack isn’t the only Democrat running to succeed Sen. Schultz. Democrat Ernie Wittwer jumped into the race last October, […]
