    U.S. President Donald Trump has selected a Christian conservative and ex U.S. Army flight surgeon Mark Green to succeed former "out" homosexual U.S. Army Secretary Eric Fanning. Ex-Army officer and West Point alumnus Mark Green is said to be Trump's top nominee for the post that is currently held by Fanning, reported The Tennesean. Green was part of the Army's special operations team that took former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein in 2003. He left the Army in 2006 and went to build and become CEO of AlignMD, a medical staffing firm until 2016 when it was acquired by American Physician...

    President Trump selected Tennessee state Sen. Mark Green for Army secretary after his initial pick backed out two months ago, the White House announced Friday evening. Green was rumored in mid-March to be the leading candidate for the military post. If selected, the gubernatorial candidate would have to put his state political ambitions on hold, though the payout, for a much bigger position on the federal level, would be an upgrade even from governor. The 52-year-old physician has served three tours overseas and later created AlignMD, an emergency room management firm. He joined the state Senate in early 2013 and...

Before being elected to the Tennessee Senate in 2012, Green began a hospital staffing company in Clarksville. The senator announced earlier this year that he was running for governor of Tennessee,...

    GREEN BAY (AP) - Democratic U.S. House candidate Steve Kagen apologized Monday for commenting that he was late for a meeting on an Indian reservation because "we're on Injun time." "I did not mean any harm by my words, and I humbly apologize if I offended anyone. That was not my intent," he said in a statement hours after the National Republican Congressional Committee released a tape recording of the comment. Kagen attended a meeting Friday on the nearby Oneida Reservation, and at his next stop in Green Bay he made the following remarks: "Appreciate getting here almost on time....

    Appearing on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Thursday, former New York City mayoral candidate and author Mark Green advocated for new legislation that would allow people to identify and locate gun owners who lived in their neighborhoods. He compared it to the already existing “Megan’s Law,” which lets citizens know if a convicted sex offender lives near them. Then he flat-out compared sex offenders to gun owners.“If we have a Megan’s Law — because I think almost everyone might agree — that if you’re a convicted child molester, a neighbor might want to know that because they’re in your home, safe, but...

    Chris Wallace and Mike Gallagher did a good job of exposing Mark Green's double-talk on the Fairness Doctrine on today's Fox News Sunday. Green, who with his brother have brought Air America out of bankruptcy, was in to debate the issue against conservative talk-show host Gallagher. But when Wallace put it to Green that liberals have plenty of outlets for their views "without having the government mandate that they appear on radio," Green's answer was astounding. AIR AMERICA'S MARK GREEN: I don't want the government to mandate that.Really? Expanding on his answer, Green said he doesn't favor the Fairness Doctrine,...

    Who says liberals lack a sense of humor? The new owner of Air America suggests that the original Air America went bankrupt because . . . it was too even-handed. Mark Green is a veteran New York pol, having served as NYC's Public Advocate and run unsuccessfuly for US senator, NYC mayor and state attorney general. His family business recently completed the acquisition of Air America out of bankruptcy. Details here. In an email distributed today [yup, I subscribe to their list], Green described what "Air America 2.0" will be like: "It'll be a business with a sharp point...

    (Note: This column appears in the Madison weekly Isthmus.) I’m sorry now that I once said Jim Doyle looks like a cross between a basset hound and Richard Nixon. It was unfair to the hound and trivializes the Nixonian side of Doyle’s character. Make no mistake, the chilling aspect of last week’s banana republic moment at the state Elections Board was its Nixonian overtones. “What’s really scary about this,” one business leader told me, “is that we have now have a governor who is willing to use the powers of government to punish political appointees. This time, it’s the Elections...

    After Mark Green narrowly lost the bitter contest for mayor in 2001, his longtime friend and former employer, Ralph Nader, gave him some blunt advice: Get out of elective politics, and return to citizen advocacy or television commentary. This time around, Mr. Green is finally listening. Last night, after conceding to Andrew M. Cuomo in the race for New York attorney general at a shopworn bar downtown, Mr. Green effectively ended his career as a candidate. He told reporters that he would “never run again.” After his losing bids for the House of Representatives, the United States Senate, the mayoralty...

    MADISON, WI (AP) -- Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark Green attempted Thursday to capitalize on a state board's decision requiring him to forfeit nearly $468,000 in campaign donations, calling on supporters to raise a nearly identical amount in 72 hours. The message sent via e-mail accuses Democratic incumbent Gov. Jim Doyle of corrupting the state Elections Board into trying to stack the deck against Green. The board on Wednesday, voting 5-2 along partisan lines, ordered Green to forfeit $467,844 in campaign cash he had raised as a member of Congress, saying it could not legally be transferred to his governor's race...

    MADISON, WI (AP) -- An education plan that Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark Green said would free up $295 million to hire more teachers has been lambasted nationally by the PTA and others as being ill-conceived and bad for schools. Democratic incumbent Gov. Jim Doyle joined the chorus on Monday, saying Green's proposal was a "shotgun blast at Wisconsin schools." Green's plan is a version of one being touted in several states designed to ensure that more money is spent in the classroom on such things as teacher salaries and textbooks instead of administrative costs and building maintenance.Nationally, the threshhold being...

    SUN PRAIRIE, WI (AP) -- Republican Mark Green shifted his campaign for the governor's office into high gear on Monday, releasing an Internet-only ad and unveiling his budget plan at the first of what he promised to be a 100-stop tour across the state between now and Election Day. In his ad, Green said if elected he would lower the tax burden or he would not run again. Green, who is trying to stop Gov. Jim Doyle from becoming the first Democrat re-elected governor in 32 years, accused the incumbent of mismanaging the state's finances which has resulted in a...

    President George W. Bush will be the main attraction at a $1,000-a-plate fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate U.S. Rep. Mark Green next week. Green's campaign confirmed today that Bush will head the Milwaukee event on Tuesday. Republicans are hoping that the event will raise about $1 million for Green's effort to unseat Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle. Doyle leads Green in fundraising by almost three-to-one, while most polls show the two candidates in a tight race.Although Bush narrowly lost Wisconsin in the 2004 election, recent polls show his popularity lagging among state residents. The conservative Wisconsin Policy Research Institute last month...

    APPLETON, WI (AP) -- Gov. Jim Doyle is the most vulnerable Democratic governor up for re-election this fall, Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman said Friday as he sought to energize GOP activists. "I think if you look around the country, I can't think of a single state where there's a greater likelihood that a Democratic governor will be replaced by a Republican governor," Mehlman told reporters as the state Republican convention got underway in Appleton. Mehlman and other Republican leaders said they would use the weekend convention to make the case that U.S. Rep. Mark Green, R-Green Bay, should...

    A new poll shows Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle locked in a tight race with Republican challenger U.S. Rep. Mark Green. But the poll shows former Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson - who has reportedly been considering running for his old job - leading Doyle by nearly a two-to-one margin. The poll by Strategic Vision, an Atlanta-based polling firm with Republican ties, shows Thompson leading Doyle 58 percent to 30 percent. Thompson, the state's longest-serving and most popular governor, leads Green in a potential Republican primary match-up by better than a three-to-one margin: 69 percent to 20 percent. Doyle leads Green by...

    Associated Press NEW YORK - Democrat Mark Green formally launched his campaign for attorney general on Wednesday, saying his career as a consumer advocate and public interest lawyer in New York and Washington made him the candidate best suited to succeed Eliot Spitzer. “New York state needs a people's lawyer in more than name alone,” Green said in a park outside the state Supreme Court building in Manhattan, pledging to battle corporate excess and business corruption in the Spitzer mold. Spitzer, who is running for governor, is well known for his high-profile investigations of Wall Street firms, mutual funds and...
