Here Is What You Should Expect From the Wisconsin Primary

Now, all eyes in the GOP nomination circus are turning to the great state of Wisconsin, a state unaccustomed to this sort of attention.

It has rarely been the case that the Wisconsin primary is pivotal — for either party. Yet it is unquestionably viewed as a must-win for the Ted Cruz and Donald Trump campaigns.

Wisconsin is deep purple: nearly every state-wide election is decided on a knife’s edge of less than 5 percentage points. It is also deeply polarized: 45% of the population will vote for an Airedale if the Airedale runs as a Democrat, no matter how reasonable or accomplished the Republican candidate may be.

And the nationally televised antics which accompanied the passage of Scott Walker’s budget-balancing Act 10 legislation and the subsequent recall election provided the paradigm for the unhinged, Leftist fury which has been chasing the Donald Trump road show in recent weeks.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Election Gets Nasty. And Weird.

In this very unusual election year, it is understandable that all eyes are turned to the spring primary elections and caucuses preparatory to the party conventions in July and the general election in November. But other offices are being decided this spring, too — offices of crucial importance on the municipal, county, and state level.

And some of those elections are shaping up to be just as nasty as the national elections promise to be.

Happy Birthday Republican Party!


The first public meeting where the name “Republican” was suggested for a new anti-slavery party was held on March 20, 1854 in a schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin.

Super Saturday for Justice Bradley on Sat March 19

We will be looking for people to come into the Bayside office to make phone calls, or to be out knocking on doors in your own neighborhood. At our office, we’ll have a couple of TVs on and food and drinks for those who want to watch the NCAA tournament while making some calls as well.

After this week, it is crucial that we get the word out as to why people need to vote for Justice Bradley. Even if you can only stop by for 20 minutes or only knock on a few doors, every voter we can contact will make a difference. Let me know if you are able to help out on Saturday, or if you absolutely cannot on Saturday, if there is another day you can come in this week or next week.

Gov. Walker Signs Zero-Based Budgeting Into Law

Gov. Scott Walker has signed Senate Bill 407 into law, making it 2015 Wisconsin Act 201. Starting with next year’s budget, each agency will have to submit one budget request which assumes a 5 percent reduction in their budget, and one request which assumes the budget stays at its current level.

Rep. Rob Hutton (R-Brookfield) and Sen. Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield), co-authors of the bill, thanked the governor and reiterated their argument that the legislation will improve the process of budget-making by allowing agencies to address their own spending.
