Good to see Congressman Glenn Grothman is on a first name basis with the Broydricks. “Now that I’m a congressman, I think it’s important for Wisconsin businesses to see me get re-elected, and Bill and Cindi represent a lot of Wisconsin businesses,” Grothman said. Why yes, and it was apparently important to get elected, which […]

Seriously, people? Erick Erickson at RedState is adding Congressman Glenn Grothman to the enemies list. The reason people are so deeply cynical about politics is because they rally around candidates who say bold things only to see those candidates immediately cave once secured in their position. Behold Glenn Grothman, a Congressman from Wisconsin. Erickson is […]

Hotline listed the thirty House seats most likely to flip control and Wisconsin’s sixth congressional district is not on the list. It didn’t even rate as an honorable mention. So much for Democratic hopes that Glenn Grothman would be too controversial for the district. The seats held by Sean Duffy and Reid Ribble don’t make the […]

For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?”  – Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice What idiot pundit said this: Okay Fitzgerald, the courts have ruled. Are you going to wait for the appeals process or are you going to call Governor Scott Walker and […]

There will be no recount in Wisconsin’s sixth congressional district. State Sen Joe Leibham issued a statement today saying he will not seek one: “After a review of the official election results and prayerful consideration with my family, I have decided not to seek a recount in the 6th Congressional District election. I have contacted […]

I am aware of the heroic step State Sen Glenn Grothman took to challenge a sitting majority leader of his own party in a Republican primary. Conservatives should be very grateful for the political risk taken by Grothman in challenging and defeating Mary Panzer. I also get the “Grothman gives good quote” argument. That’s probably what Charlie […]

The other day I commented on State Senator Glenn Grothman’s criticism of a campaign contribution to State Senator Joe Leibham. I agreed that it wasn’t the brightest decision. Leibham’s people struck back, and in a press release they listed four donors known for the infamous generosity to Democratic candidates. ♦ J. Leavell – Grothman donor with […]

Collin Roth at RightWisconsin reported on the controversy over a donation to State Sen Joe Leibham from a union that supported the recall of Governor Scott Walker: The matter of a $5,000 donation from the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) PAC to Sen. Joe Leibham raised the temperature of the 6th District primary […]

Now that primary election day is getting closer,and we’ve seen how the primary in the sixth congressional district has gone, I’d like everyone to just take a step back, look at the Big Picture, and realize what a colossal waste of time, money and energy this whole race has been. We may even lose the […]

So let me get this straight. State Senator Glenn Grothman is thinking about challenging Congressman Tom Petri in the Republican primary even though he doesn’t live in the district. To win, he would need the support of national conservative groups. So conservatives are thinking about running a candidate from outside the district with money from […]
