Coming into the final week of the campaign in the 97th Assembly district, the Allen campaign and the Rosner campaign are nearly even in cash on hand. Kathleen Cummings’s campaign got a sudden boost, but still is third behind the leaders. Scott Allen raised $8,600 this period, bringing the campaign total to $25,970.98. Of the […]

Four candidates in the 97th Assembly district, Vince Trovato, Kathleen Cummings, Joe Banske and Aaron Perry, went to a candidate forum on drinking, smoking and drugs. (Add firearms and they could have had a really good time.) They must have checked their belief in freedom and parental rights at the door. Wisconsin has a loophole […]

It’s the gift that keeps on giving to Scott Allen. On Wednesday, Charlie Sykes on WTMJ made a verbal jab at Brandon Rosner (37:20 minute mark) for making what Sykes called, “the single stupidest comment made by a candidate.”  Yes, there was a reminder that Rosner gave money to Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca while Allen […]

“Hagen was the only one in that room who knew the identity of the portraits hanging on the dark paneled walls. They were mostly portraits of fabulous financial figures done in rich oils.

On my list of campaign stops in the 97th Assembly District this last week was a fundraiser for Vince Trovato at Mia’s in Downtown Waukesha. For those of you who like your candidate to give short speeches so you can get back to eating, drinking, talking and the Brewer game, Trovato was quite succinct in […]

There are at least two more candidate forums coming up in the 97th Assembly District race. From Keith Best of the Waukesha County GOP: The Republican Women of Waukesha County, in alliance with the Republican Party of Waukesha County, announces a Candidate Forum for the 97th Assembly District on Wednesday July 30. The event will […]

The July Continuing Finance Reports for state candidates were due Monday. They cover contributions and expenditures through June 30th. We’re still waiting on campaign finance reports for Vince Trovato. It’s possible he did not file electronically, or the GAB is just bogged down. Regardless, we do have the reports for Scott Allen, Joe Banske, Kathleen […]

The National Rifle Association has now issued Waukesha Alderman Kathleen Cummings an AQ rating. She joins Vince Trovato, Scott Allen and Brandon Rosner as candidates in the 97th Assembly race with AQ ratings. Alderman Aaron Perry has a B- rating and former town supervisor Joe Banske has a C rating. Somebody asked me about Cummings […]

We’ll run this poll until Friday night at Midnight. If you are a Republican planning on voting in the August 12th Republican primary in the 97th Assembly District, for which of the following candidates will you vote? This is obviously an unscientific online poll but I am curious to see how much enthusiasm there is […]
