    Rules previously put in place by the city of Cleveland would have left pro and anti-Trump groups sharing protest space, but a likely settlement to be reached will allow groups to have their own space to protest. The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against Cleveland due to grievances over a restrictive 3.3 square mile security zone and a parade route that was potentially out of the sight and sound of delegates it would be meant to protest. The group Citizens for Trump, who was involved in the lawusit with the ACLU, was particularly worried about their safety...

Poor George Will should question his intelligence as a commentator if he can't even understand that is neo-conservatives like him that brought the GOP to this state.

    Members of the "Free the Delegates" movement are expected to file separate lawsuits in Arizona and Virginia on Friday, challenging the constitutional restraints on binding delegates to a candidate at next month's Republican National Convention. A source familiar with the forthcoming court filings claimed that some individuals seeking to unbind all 2,472 delegates in Cleveland next month are being intimidated by state-level GOP officials. In some cases, the source said, party leaders have threatened to revoke delegates' credentials to the national convention. Regina Thomson, who serves as executive director of Free the Delegates, could not be reached for further details....

    Madison— Faced with delays and inflation over the past five years, four major state highway projects — including a Madison artery — have accumulated overruns in excess of $700 million. While some of these increases come from faulty cost estimates or unavoidable inflation, the new figures underline the obvious: Delays can be costly for Wisconsin taxpayers. When projects are paused because of financial challenges in the state's road fund, the price of materials, labor and real estate can rise. The numbers compiled by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel underline the urgency of a divisive issue for Wisconsin's Republican leaders: finding a...

U.S. District Court Judge James Gwin ruled the city’s establishment of a large zone around the July convention site within which protesters’ ability to demonstrate would be strictly limited contravened the Constitution’s guarantees of the freedom of speech and assembly. “Under the First Amendment, I do find that the city hasn't sufficiently, narrowly...

About 250 people will work inside the Q each day to ready the arena for the RNC. The Republican Party typically needs six to eight weeks to convert a space into the RNC convention floor. This year, the GOP only has four weeks — but officials have said they are confident the Q will be ready in time for the convention.

    But the fact is that the attacks by Romney and others not only do not harm Trump’s chances of winning. They enhance them. Rather than seek to heal the split, he should try to widen it. A political leader is particularly credible when he speaks ill of members of his own party, particularly after the primary season has ended. While we treat as boiler plate criticism of Democrats by Republicans and vice versa, we take seriously derogatory comments about members of one’s own party (hence the media’s interest in intraparty criticism of Trump). If Trump can criticize the Romney wing...
