Waukesha Freeman May 7, 2015 Page A6 Opinion The race begins Dorow-Kapenga rematch set for June And they’re off. On Tuesday, Gov. Scott Walker set the date for the special election for the 33rd Senate District being vacated by Paul Farrow. The primary election day will be June 23 and the general election will be […]

On Tuesday Governor Scott Walker announced the dates for the special election the 33rd state senate district. This morning at RightWisconsin, I gave my assessment of the race as of this moment. Here’s a bit of it: Dorow upped the pace again Tuesday morning with a new radio ad introducing himself to the broader community. […]

Over at the MacIver Institute, I wrote about the latest Marquette University Law School poll’s results concerning expanding school choice statewide. They weren’t good. It was disappointing to read the results of the latest Marquette University Law School Poll regarding private school choice. The poll results showed 54% of the respondents opposed removing the caps […]

Waukesha Freeman 4/23/15 Page A5 Opinion John Doe probes for political gain Time to end using police power for politics   It’s Kafkaesque. David French, writing in National Review, tells the unfortunate story of those investigated in Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm’s John Doe probes into the activities of conservatives inside Gov. Scott Walker’s […]

Over at the MacIver Institute, I have an op-ed on state Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson’s lawsuit to keep “chief” in her title. Yes, I know it’s racist of her, but she really wants to be called “chief.” Anyway, there’s a pattern here, and like cargo Capri pants, it’s not very flattering to liberals. […]

Hosted by Bob and Jean Dohnal, and emceed by our friend Brian Fraley, this annual gathering […]

Over at RightWisconsin, I wrote that State Rep Chris Kapenga’s announcement for state senate wasn’t quite as smooth as he hoped. He exaggerated his role with Act 10, claiming he was a co-sponsor. He’s since corrected that on his website. But as I also explain in the article, he’s also ahead with a good list […]

Waukesha Freeman 4/9/15 Page A5 Opinion Wait for the evidence No data supporting ‘sober server’ ordinance  The Waukesha Common Council is considering enacting a “sober server” ordinance for bars in the city. The ordinance, as proposed, would punish bartenders for being on duty while over the legal limit for intoxication for driving, 0.08 blood-alcohol content. […]

If, as expected, State Senator Paul Farrow is elected Waukesha County Executive, who will follow Farrow? Over at RightWisconsin, I name the two candidates mostly likely to battle it out. Farrow is expected to serve as both the state senator and the county executive until the state budget passes. When he resigns as senator, there […]

Our friends at RightWisconsin asked Dave Blaska, Jerry Bader and me to join their editor Collin Roth in talking about who and what are on the ballot today. I actually put on my prognosticator pundit hat on (always dangerous) and predicted the outcomes of a number of elections in Waukesha. One race I touched on […]
