    Supporters of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump are passing around early voting totals which purport to show Trump up big in Wisconsin, a swing state that that appeared to be solidly in the camp of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. But the early voting totals are clearly fake, though their exact origin is unclear. The results in question come from, a joint operation of Wisconsin Public Radio and Wisconsin Public Television. The website is primarily a public service, offering information on candidates, races, issues, and how to register to vote. But the website also features a results page, which intriguingly...

    Rumblings of a leadership shake-up are getting louder — Paul Ryan’s position is about to become the next target of conservatives. CNN had this report yesterday: “Rep. Mark Meadows said Thursday the effort to remove Speaker Paul Ryan is ‘picking up some steam’ because many GOP lawmakers and a stream of callers to the North Carolinian’s congressional offices are incensed the Wisconsin Republican hasn’t embraced fully Donald Trump’s candidacy for president. “Meadows, one of the 30-plus members of the ultra-conservative and powerful House Freedom Caucus, said there “’will be real discussions after November 8 on who our leadership will be...

    I may have been way too optimistic a week ago when I posted that it was “hard to come up with a realistic scenario that ends with Paul Ryan (R-WI) as speaker of the House of Representatives in the next Congress.” Never mind the next Congress: It now looks like Ryan could be deposed or forced to resign this Congress in the lame duck session that begins a week after Election Day. In other words, Ryan may no longer be speaker about four weeks from now. I say this after hearing from several highly reliable sources that the House Freedom...

    In 49 states, when you order breakfast in a restaurant you might be asked if you would like pancakes or an omelet. In Wisconsin, you are asked if you would like pancakes with your omelet. Ron Johnson would, thank you. This Republican U.S. senator, who is burning prodigious amounts of calories campaigning for a second and final term, really does represent the hearty eaters who were fueling up at a Perkins Restaurant here on a recent Sunday morning. In 2010, Johnson left his plastics manufacturing company that made him wealthy enough to try, against his preference for the private sector...

    Madison — Less than three weeks out from the Nov. 8 elections, the number of absentee ballots issued to voters is running just under 40% of the total issued in the entire election season of 2012. Local officials said they're seeing strong interest in voting amid rules that were revised and expanded following a recent federal court ruling. "It's pretty significant that we're past a third of the way to our previous numbers and we still have the two busiest weeks left," said Neil Albrecht, executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission.

Chants of “Paul Ryan sucks” were shouted, but is this an isolated incident? That is, is this just a representation of Trump supporters from the local area? No—not really. The latest polling shows that support for Ryan has collapsed, sinking 28 points…in a week. The YouGov poll had some interesting points concerning Ryan, Trump, and the brewing tensions that seem bound to erupt in civil war once this election is over.

    Wisconsinite Christina Ferguson was arrested this week for accidentally smearing peanut butter on the windshields of 30 cars parked outside a meeting of a local environmental group. She thought the cars belonged to Donald Trump supporters. Ferguson first made her presence known by walking into the meeting and yelling about Trump while holding a “family-size jar of low-sodium, creamy natural Jif,” according to the police report. After she was booted from the building, Ferguson went to the parking lot to do her damage. The police were called, and Ferguson denied everything, but she was eventually outed by the peanut butter...

    According to YouGov’s Will Jordan, Ryan’s net favorable rating within his own party stood at +23 a week or so ago. Then, after the “Access Hollywood” tape was revealed, Ryan told House Republicans that he’ll no longer defend Trump or campaign with him. Trump spent the following week needling Ryan on Twitter and at his rallies for not showing the same support for him as Democratic pols showed for Clinton. That culminated in Trumpers chanting “Paul Ryan sucks” at a rally in Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin a few days ago. Paul Ryan’s favorable rating today: That’s 40 percent favorable,...

Based on independent analysis and recent polling, Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., are in toss-up races, with Burr maintaining a slight lead in his campaign while Johnson appears to have closed to within a few points of his challenger after trailing by double-digit margins for months.

Trump — a man he barely knew, with no institutional ties to his party and a mouth that had already clacked his nerves — had secured the Republican nomination for president. Mr. Trump had recently lost the Wisconsin primary, which Mr. Ryan and other Republicans in the state thought would presage the reality television star’s demise. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas had made strides, and Mr. Ryan thought the campaign would snake into the summer. But he badly miscalculated. The ensuing...

Johnson's Democratic opponent, former Sen. Russ Feingold, challenged Johnson to renounce Trump, who's been battered by accusations of sexual misbehavior. Trump has denied the allegations.

In practical terms, the party will be working to mobilize voters who support GOP House and Senate candidates regardless of their position on the presidential race. That means the RNC will push Floridians who support both Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio to vote. Before today, the RNC wouldn’t have sought to turn out Clinton voters, leaving split-ticket voters for Senate campaigns to target. (Snip) On top...

That oath has not changed, nor has it expired. I am more concerned with what is right than what will get me re-elected. I made a commitment that I would not accept funds from corporations, organizations, or...

Ryan and Trump were expected to appear in Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin on the eve of the second presidential debate,...

    A leading #NeverTrump radio host is pulling the plug on his Wisconsin show, citing age and retirement plans to explain his departure from the airwaves by end of the year. “This morning, I announced that I am stepping down from my daily radio show on WTMJ at the end of this year,” Charlie Sykes said on his website. I know that lot of people will assume that my decision has something to do with this current campaign and the rise of Trumpism. But, the reality (as my friends and family know) is that I made this decision a long time...

    Students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are asking people to buy sweatshirts promoting violence against police officers and classifying all white people as racists. “Racism,” claims one hoodie’s page, “is a set of systematic, institutional, cultural, and epistemological (although not limited to said forms) structures that inherently empowers white folk and in turn disempowers people of color. This power dictates who lives, have housing, access to education/healthcare etc. Racism has little to do with hatred and mostly to do with who has powe

    WASHINGTON ― Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is campaigning with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in Wisconsin on Saturday, though it kind of seems he didn’t want you to know that. Ryan’s campaign released a media advisory Thursday titled, “Paul Ryan to Attend Annual Fall Fest in Walworth County.” It’s an event in Ryan’s home state, and the advisory lists lots of state officials attending. Oh, and three paragraphs in, it mentions Trump will be there too.

    WAUKESHA, WI (WBAY) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump makes his third trip to Wisconsin in a little over a month, rallying supporters in Waukesha County Wednesday night. During a 40 minute speech, Trump blasted his democratic rival Hillary Clinton on a number of issues, focusing on her ties to Wall Street, special interest groups and big money donors. “These special interests totally control Hillary Clinton, she’s their chosen representative. You can disregard anything she says, and just remember that phrase, follow the money. She’s there for only one reason, to protect her donors and collect money,” Trump said. He...
