    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 thats 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 states 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 Sundays 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 CNNs where Trump is at 43 or 44. Hes climbing, even, in the CNN poll, but hes not at 50%. You have Trump, and you wonder: In any poll, how could Trump be at 51%? Hes fighting an unaccountable special counsel. Hes fighting current and former deep staters, a dominant radical left-wing media. Hes 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. Wisconsins 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 years presidential election, Veritas founder James OKeefe 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.

    Wisconsin may become the first state in America to drug test able-bodied adults applying for food stamps, if Gov. Scott Walker gets his way. Walker moved ahead Monday with his plans, a move that has been blocked by the federal government or found unconstitutional when other states have tried. Wisconsins plan was approved by the Republican-controlled legislature more than two years ago, but it languished because it conflicted with federal rules prohibiting states from imposing additional eligibility criteria on food stamp recipients. Florida had a drug test requirement for food stamp recipients that a federal appeals court blocked in 2014,...

    the Left engaged in gross abuses of criminal law to intimidate, harass and silence conservatives in the state. The specifics were chilling -- from pre-dawn raids on political activists' homes, to stifling gag orders preventing them from saying a peep about what was happening to them, all in pursuit of criminalizing and punishing the Badger State conservative movement. Eventually, one target violated his gag order and blew the whistle on the whole operation, eventually leading to investigations of the investigations, and multiple courts shutting down the witch hunts with extreme prejudice. ... ruthless the Left had become in its efforts...

Scott Walker, his supporters, and various conservative groups related to his recall election campaign. Despite concluding a crime was committed during the John Doe proceedings, WIDoJ recommends no criminal charges. Instead, the report recommends that former Government Accountability Board (GAB) lawyer Shane Falk be referred to the state judiciarys Office of Lawyer Regulation for discipline and that contempt proceedings be initiated against John Doe special prosecutor Francis Schmitz and former...

    In a move sure to annoy the academic left already hostile to him, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed an executive order effectively outlawing BDS in the state. "On October 30th, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed an anti-BDS measure, Executive Order 261, into law," the Louis D. Brandeis Center reports. "The Executive Order states that agencies may not 'execute a contract with a business entity if that entity is engaging in a boycott of Israel. Further, agencies shall reserve the right to terminate any contract with a business entity that engages in a boycott of Israel during the term of the...

    The Republican Governors Association (RGA) slammed Hillary Clintons ex-spokesman and CNN political contributor Brian Fallon in a statement on Saturday after Fallon derisively claimed Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie was a white supremacist. Brian Fallons attack on Ed Gillespie is shameful, disgraceful, and has no place in American politics, said RGA Chairman Governor Scott Walker. Ralph Northam, Hillary Clinton and CNN should immediately denounce Fallons blatant attempt to score political points from a tragedy, and CNN should question whether it serves the network and the viewing public well by giving a microphone to Fallons hateful rhetoric. Fallon claimed that...

"President Trumps rejection of fact, science and of the Paris Climate Agreement is an act that endangers every American. Gov. Walkers silence on this issue echoes this shared anti-environment, anti-middle class agenda, read the letter to Walker signed by 35 state representatives and 11 senators.

    Now that the long Memorial Day holiday is over and legislators and the governor have returned from their road trips, we hope they have a better sense of the condition of highways around the state and a renewed sense of urgency on the need for upgrades and repairs. The first order of business, it would seem to us, is to come to some agreement on a state transportation budget for the next two years. Hopefully, hopefully, when that is done they will also take a longer-term view of Wisconsins highway construction needs and how best they should be met ...

    He may have lost his bid for the Republican presidential nomination last year, but Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker remains the bete noire of the Left in one of its gestational cradles, particularly in the public school system. "The Occupy movement didn't start on Wall Street," Governor Walker told the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). "It started on my street." "The tipping point was when a bunch of protestors showed up dressed as zombies for a special Olympics event." Similarly, he was familiar with the type of treatment U. S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos recently received when...
