  • Judge strikes down Florida law that has listed GOP candidates first on ballots for 20 years

    A federal court in Tallahassee struck down a Florida law that listed the governor’s party first on all ballots, which Democrats argued gave Republicans a significant advantage in a state where the two biggest races in 2018 were both within 0.4 percentage points. In his ruling, District Court Judge Mark Walker issued a permanent injunction against the law, stating it violates both the First and 14th amendments of the Constitution. “Florida’s ballot order statute is not neutral; instead, it affects Plaintiffs’ rights in a politically discriminatory way,” Walker wrote. “… It is difficult to imagine what other purpose it could...
  • WI SC Ruling Big Win For GOP-Led Legislature, Rebuke Of Evers’ Political Haste

    MADISON, Wis. — In a significant victory for the Republican-controlled Legislature, and a rebuke of Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ swift political purge, the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the reinstatement of more than a dozen public servants confirmed during December’s controversial extraordinary legislative session. The 4-3 decision also is a stinging criticism of a liberal Dane County judge’s previous ruling and arguably signals how the conservative-led court will ultimately rule on the appeal before it. Seizing a narrow window of legal opportunity, Evers in March rescinded 82 appointments confirmed by the Legislature just weeks before the Democrat took office....

    House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes filed a $150 million lawsuit in Virginia state court against The McClatchy Company and others on Monday, alleging that one of the news agency's reporters conspired with a political operative to derail Nunes' oversight work into the Hillary Clinton campaign and Russian election interference. The filing, obtained by Fox News, came a day after Nunes, R-Calif., revealed he would send eight criminal referrals to the Justice Department this week concerning purported surveillance abuses by federal authorities, false statements to Congress and other matters. In March, Nunes filed a similar $250 million lawsuit alleging...

    Scott Walker, who started out as singer with the Walker Brothers before establishing a reputation as a solo artist, died at the age of 76 on March 25, his record label confirmed. “For half a century, the genius of the man born Noel Scott Engel has enriched the lives of thousands, first as one third of the Walker Brothers, and later as a solo artist, producer and composer of uncompromising originality,” 4AD said in a statement. “[A]udacious and questioning, he has produced works that dare to explore human vulnerability and the godless darkness encircling it.” The Walker Brothers formed in...

    Democratic candidates won governorships in seven Republican-held states on Tuesday as voters rebuked both President Trump and unpopular GOP governors in some of the deepest red territories in the country. Democratic candidates picked up open seats in Maine, Nevada, Michigan and New Mexico where Republican incumbents faced term limits. State Sen. Laura Kelly (D) beat out controversial Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R), who ousted Gov. Jeff Colyer (R) in this year’s Republican primary. Billionaire hotel magnate J.B. Pritzker (D) easily outpaced Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) in a race that cost both men tens of millions of dollars....

    With the race for governor hanging in the balance, Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said his office still had more than 45,000 uncounted ballots shortly after midnight Wednesday. Christenson said his office had just received 7,800 ballots from Wauwatosa, which were delayed because of a problem with a computer modem. Officials were reconciling those numbers and would soon release the totals. Christenson said he was still waiting to receive 45,000 outstanding absentee ballots from the City of Milwaukee. Milwaukee city officials put the figure even higher, saying the outstanding votes total 47,000. That amount includes 36,000 in-person absentee ballots and...

    What's up with Charlie Skyes? He has been surly and gloomy since Donald Trump won the GOP nomination and the presidency in 2016. Is his lack of enthusiasm hurting Scott Walker in Wisconsin, especially conservative fortress Waukesha? What's going on over there? My friend lives in Waukesha and is worried about some guy Evers in the polls against Walker.

    Soon after Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker announced the passing of his father, some liberal Twitter users went after the Republican incumbent. Llewellyn Scott Walker, a retired Baptist preacher, passed away on Sunday, and the governor canceled weekend events to be with his family. In response to news of the governor's passing, one Twitter user wrote, "May all Republicans eat sh#t always and forever." After one Twitter user responded with a call for compassion, the same person responded, "Compassion for team trump? Really? lol. These arnt people. Politicians arnt people.

    For Republicans in Wisconsin, it’s a time to be sentimental — and scared. BURLINGTON, Wisconsin — Picnics aren’t supposed to be maudlin. But last weekend, as they piled their plates with bratwurst and tipped back cans of Pabst Blue Ribbon at Speaker Paul Ryan’s annual Fall Fest, Wisconsin Republicans wrestled with their mortality as a powerhouse in state and national politics. Gov. Scott Walker, who is seeking a third term in November, delivered the biggest buzzkill. Believe the polls, he told the nearly 300 activists gathered here inside a tarpaulin tent in the middle of an apple orchard. Even the...

    The Koch political network is rolling out another seven-figure ad campaign to boost incumbent Republican Gov. Scott Walker's re-election bid in Wisconsin. Americans for Prosperity on Friday announced plans to spend $1.3 million on TV and digital spots as part of a three-week effort to hit Democratic challenger Tony Evers, the state's superintendent. The push follows a $1.8 million campaign spearheaded by the group's Wisconsin chapter promoting Walker's education policy record. Walker faces a close race to secure a third term

    (WLUK) -- One could argue summer is a synonym for construction season. You'll likely find orange barrels in the summer and traffic certain hours of the day. "I see it sometimes coming the other way," said Luke Agnew of Fall River. Once a week, Agnew makes the more than 100 mile drive from Columbia County to Door County."It's usually late evening or mid-morning," he said. He tries his best to avoid the stop and go but not all drivers can say the same. When it comes to the I-41 corridor between De Pere to Appleton, Gov. Scott Walker announced Wednesday:After...

    SUPERIOR, Wis. ― It was a little early for a drink, but that wasn’t going to stop Mahlon Mitchell. It was a Saturday at 11:30 a.m. in Superior, a port city of 30,000 in Wisconsin’s far northwest corner. Mitchell, the leader of the Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin and a Democratic candidate for governor, had just finished touring the city with fellow firefighters and was about to kick off an economic roundtable with other union members. But first, he was perusing the beer list at Thirsty Pagan Brewing. Why? “I can run faster and jump higher than the other candidates,” he...
