Okay, so Saturday’s football game didn’t turn out like Wisconsinites hoped. Over at the MacIver Institute, I explain why Wisconsin is beating Ohio in something almost as important as football.

Kenneth Rowles, […]

I’m sure Rick Esenberg and other law bloggers will have something interesting to say on today’s development in Ohio, but a quick glance looks like a case where judicial restraint just frustrated Republican goals. The Secretary argues both that the District Court had no jurisdiction to enter the TRO and that its ruling on the […]

Minnesota is now even between Barack Obama and John McCain. Minnesota has become a battleground in a presidential campaign that has dramatically tightened nationwide. A new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll shows that the race is now a dead heat between Barack Obama and John McCain, each supported by 45 percent of likely voters in the […]
