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. Over at RightWisconsin, I explain how the endorsement by Governor Scott Walker of Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Trump’s reaction to it, shows just how much the New […]

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.

While we should all condemn the violent tactics of the political left that shut down the Trump rally, we should also recognize Trump’s responsibility in escalating the tension. If anything, Trump’s rhetoric denying any […]

Waukesha Freeman March 10, 2016 Page A6 Opinion Time, context matter Bradley should be forgiven for college comments It’s impossible not to be frustrated with the revelations that state Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Bradley wrote some awful anti-homosexual remarks in the student newspaper at Marquette 24 years ago. Even in 1992, 24 years ago when […]

I always took the breakup of the Whig Party personally for some reason. (We’ll pause to let the Trump voters catch up.) Over the past few months I’ve made references to the Know-Nothing Party, a brief but interesting part of American history that is often forgotten. In Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball report, indispensable weekly reading […]

Waukesha Freeman Page A6 Opinion 3/3/16 Feingold forgets own record No hurry on Supreme Court pick The president proposes and Congress disposes is the old saying about divided government in Washington D.C.
