Over at RightWisconsin, I have a piece this morning that warns the entire country is watching to see, not only the results of today’s election, but whether Waukesha County can run an election. After the vote tally debacle in the state Supreme Court race, former Slate reporter Dave Weigel (now with the Washington Post) coined […]

I don’t know if Senator Ron Johnson understands it or not but his path to re-election is a lot easier if Donald Trump loses the Republican nomination. Over At RightWisconsin, I explain why the mere mention of Trump becomes an anchor on the Johnson campaign. Johnson was interviewed on Fox News and he said that […]

Governor Scott Walker opposed Obamacare and refused to expand Medicaid spending, yet still managed to eliminate the gaps in coverage availability. All three Republican candidates for president claim they are opposed to Obamacare, but what are their plans for health care? At the MacIver Institute, I looked at each of their plans and explained which […]

Over at the MacIver Institute, I explain the flag flap in Lake Geneva, WI, and what it took for one long-time business owner to resist an anonymous bureaucrat. The “City of Lake Geneva Code Enforcement Office,” in an unsigned letter, told Patzfahl that the flag was in violation of city ordinances. Even though the hole […]

Waukesha Freeman Thursday, 03/31/2016 Pag.A05 Opinion Ted Cruz only candidate who can take on Trump All eyes on Wisconsin leading up to primary Welcome to ground zero.

Every flyover state looks the same when you’re flying on Trump airlines, but after Tuesday it’s unlikely Donald Trump will look at Wisconsin the same way again.

Waukesha Freeman Thursday, 03/24/2016 Pg.A06 Opinion Republicans must unite behind Cruz Trump must be stopped here The great scheduling gods decreed that the Wisconsin presidential primary should coincide with our spring elections on April 5. There are no more Republican primaries until then, there will be no other presidential primaries that day, and the next […]

Over at RightWisconsin, I reported that at this morning’s campaign appearance by Heidi Cruz she had some strong words in response to Donald Trump: Heidi Cruz, the wife of presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz, said of Donald Trump, “You probably know by now, most of the things Donald Trump says have no base in reality.” […]

Wisconsin does not allocate Republican delegates proportionally. As I explain over at RightWisconsin, every vote cast for Ohio Governor John Kasich is a lost opportunity to vote against Donald Trump. …if Kasich draws enough former Rubio voters, he could block Cruz’s campaign from winning a plurality statewide. That would award the eighteen statewide delegates to […]

Over at RightWisconsin, I explained why Governor Scott Walker needs to endorse Texas Senator Ted Cruz for president. Here’s the opening: It’s time for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to endorse Texas Senator Ted Cruz. When Walker withdrew from the presidential campaign trail, he called on other Republicans to consider dropping out to unite the anti-Trump […]
