    La Crosse, WI (WXOW) The latest Marquette University poll shows Governor Walker has closed the gap. In September, the Marquette Poll showed Tony Evers with a 49 – 44 lead.

    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. [sic] This is just another PR opportunity for this sh#tbag." Another...

    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...

    FULL TITLE: Scott Walker's Dem Opponent: Tax Dollars Should Pay for Abortions Just Like They Pay for Tonsillectomies Tony Evers, the Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial nominee running against Scott Walker, said in an interview on Tuesday that the Democratic party needs to be a "big tent" that welcomes pro-life voters order to win in November. While pro-life Democrats are dwindling in numbers in Congress and ostracized within other states, Evers told THE WEEKLY STANDARD that "pro-life Democrats are welcome in the party, and I respect their decisions on this issue." Evers then proceeded to compare abortions to tonsillectomies while advocating for...

    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...

    The Trump administration has approved a plan in Wisconsin allowing the state to shore up its Obamacare market. The plan is expected to lower premiums in 2019 by an average of 3.5 percent. Without it, premiums would rise by 11 percent in 2019, even after seeing hikes of 44 percent for 2018. “People in the individual market saw their premiums go up by 44 percent on average last year, and some saw much larger increases – that’s unsustainable and unacceptable,” said Republican Gov. Scott Walker, an Obamacare opponent. “Thankfully, the federal government is giving us the flexibility to implement a...

    Just last week, eight candidates for governor participated in the first broadcast Democratic primary debate, an event that showcased plenty of agreement, like on criticism of Gov. Scott Walker and the Foxconn deal and support for an early release program to reduce the state’s prison population. A forum held Sunday on Madison's east side featuring just four of the Democratic candidates covered more common ground on issues of school funding and the rights of undocumented immigrants. When asked to delve into the details of their ideas over the two hour event, the candidates attempted to differentiate their policies from the...

    During Sunday’s broadcast of “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970 radio, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker weighed in on a liberal judge defeating a conservative in a Wisconsin Supreme Court election. He said that conservatives needed to “wake up” because the left was “angry and their rhetoric is filled with hate.” “We had a bit of a wake-up call on Tuesday. On Tuesday in our state, Wisconsin, had the elections for Supreme Court justices. And for the first time in about 20 years in an open seat for the Supreme Court, a liberal judge defeated a conservative judge,” Walker...

    RUSH: By the way, the Rasmussen presidential tracking poll for today: Trump at 51% approval. The rest of the Drive-Bys discount Rasmussen. They call it a Republican-slanted poll unit. They discount it. They prefer to use CNN’s where Trump is at 43 or 44. He’s climbing, even, in the CNN poll, but he’s not at 50%. You have Trump, and you wonder: In any poll, how could Trump be at 51%? He’s fighting an unaccountable special counsel. He’s fighting current and former deep staters, a dominant radical left-wing media. He’s fighting the ChiComs’ illegal trade practices, dealing with an insane...

    MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee drivers will deal with orange barrels on the freeways for the next 10 years even if Congress passes a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan, the head of the a Wisconsin transportation group said. Pat Goss, executive director of the Transportation Builders Association, says the state hasn't put itself in a position to use the federal money for two Milwaukee County freeway projects eliminated in 2017. That year, Gov. Scott Walker delayed construction on Interstate 41 north of the Zoo Interchange and abandoned plans to rebuild Interstate 94 past Miller Park because of a funding shortfall. Don't expect a $1.5...

    MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin’s infamous John Doe investigation was more sinister and politically driven than originally reported. A Wisconsin Attorney General report on the year-long investigation into leaks of sealed John Doe court documents to a liberal British publication in September 2016 finds a rogue agency of partisan bureaucrats bent on a mission “to bring down the (Gov. Scott) Walker campaign and the Governor himself.” The AG report, released Wednesday, details an expanded John Doe probe into a “broad range of Wisconsin Republicans,” a “John Doe III,” according to Attorney General Brad Schimel, that widened the scope of the so-called...

    Just before last year’s presidential election, Veritas founder James O’Keefe released footage of Wisconsin liberal activist Scott Foval bragging about disrupting Republican events and discussing busing people into Wisconsin from other states. The video doesn't make clear whether he was indicating the people were brought to the state to vote or for some other reason. Soon afterward, Schimel launched his investigation.
