Many Wisconsin Progressives are extremely unhappy with the candidacy of Trek Executive, Mary Burke. Nary a day goes by without Facebook posts about Burke’s lack of a progressive outlook and Vinehout’s expected announcement.
Most recently a member of the Solidarity Sing-A-Long put up a post stating that “Burke is among the one percent” and “she [...]
As Ed Shaina noted earlier today, Democratic State Sen. John Lehman has announced he will run for Lieutenant Governor next year rather than seek re-election to his Senate seat.
As a friend on Facebook noted, there’s been no word on when Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate will issue a statement sharing his belief [...]
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%.
Just days after Burke declared that [...]
If you completed high school English, there’s a 99% chance you’ve read at least one book by George Orwell. In one of his best works, 1984, he writes about a society that is being brain washed through the restriction and reprogramming of language—basically, cut out as many unnecessary words as possible, and introduce words that [...]

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 [...]
Kathleen Vinehout will be on WOJB’s Local Morning Edition program at 8:30 am today. This is the 100,000 watt clear channel public radio station that is owned and operated by the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Ojibwa Indians near Hayward. It is a call-in format program, so here is the chance to discuss [...]
With the election for governor still more than a year away, a new poll shows the race is already close.
Republican Gov. Scott Walker had 47% and Democrat Mary Burke had 45% in a poll of 800 registered voters released Tuesday by Marquette Law School.
