    Everytown for Gun Safety announced on Monday its plan to spend at least $60 million in the 2020 election, which is nearly double what the National Rifle Association (NRA) spent in 2016. Billionaire former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, is a co-founder of Everytown and is the organization’s largest donor. Bloomberg has put gun control at the forefront of his campaign, but Everytown has said they will treat him like any other candidate in terms of endorsements. “This massive 2020 effort is fueled by a combination of financial resources, unprecedented grassroots...
  • Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District Deserves Better Than a Swamp Creature

    RightWisconsin is always reluctant to endorse candidates for public office. We would like to remain a forum for candidates and let the voters decide for themselves. However, there are circumstances in the 7th congressional district special election that compel us to indicate a preference in that race. Those circumstances lead us to conclude that Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst) is the only candidate deserving of Republican votes in the February 18 GOP primary. Tiffany and his opponent Jason Church are currently fighting a battle of who can be more supportive of President Donald Trump. We’re a long way from when Wisconsin...

    MADISON — Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes believes we must “stymie capitalism” if we want to save the world from the threats of climate change. That’s what the Democrat told a gathering of fellow doom-and-gloomers last month during a panel discussion at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Madrid. Barnes was joined on stage by a bevy of North American bureaucrats, including Canada’s “Climate Ambassador” and Mexico’s “Climate Change Director.”The “side event,” as it was described on the conference agenda, was on “subnational strategies in North America for meeting Paris Commitments.”  It was oozing with liberal politics. The session’s smug host,...

    The cafeteria food fight, also known as the Senate impeachment trial, is underway. I, like most Americans outside the Beltway and the political bubble, know this is like watching a movie where you already know the ending. Trump will rightfully be acquitted. The Democrats do not realize that America is tired of their political antics and high drama tactics. I mean come on, they walked over the articles of impeachment like a bunch of mopes, feigning seriousness, while many Americans either yawned or laughed. The rest of the country is more interested in what happened recently in the gun-grabbing...

    If this stat is accurate -- and I have no reason to doubt it -- President Trump has far more cross-party appeal than the Media Cartel would have us believe. Oh, and, if true, he's clearly the odds on favorite to win the 2020 election... in an electoral college landslide.Earlier this week, Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale shared some statistics from Trump's campaign rally in Wisconsin on Tuesday. They are absolutely staggering. According to Pascale, 57.9% of the 20,395 voters in attendance were either registered Democrats or Independents. Excellent data from Milwaukee: ? 20,395 Voters Identified ? 15,738 Voters...

    "Iranian general Soleimani killed Americans and he likely supplied the IED that nearly killed me," Church, who is running in the special election to fill Wisconsin's vacant Seventh Congressional District seat, says in the ad. . . . "It's the career politicians who helped coddle Iran in the first place, giving them the resources necessary to fight these wars," Church says in the video, which now has over 410,000 views. "It's the weakness of these career politicians that needs to be fought, and I will fight with President Donald Trump every day to defend our nation."

    A Wisconsin state court of appeals on Tuesday put on hold a ruling requiring the urgent removal of more than 200,000 names from the state’s voter rolls, the latest twist in a closely watched legal fight playing out in the battleground state ahead of the 2020 election. The ruling comes after a lower court judge last month ordered the purging of roughly 234,000 people from voter rolls because they may have moved, and a day after the state's elections commission and several of its members were found in contempt of court for not complying with the removal order. The latest...

    MILWAUKEE — President Donald Trump heads to battleground Wisconsin on Tuesday to rally supporters just down the street from where Democrats will meet in six months to nominate his opponent, a campaign trip that coincides with the Democratic presidential debate in neighboring Iowa. Counter-protests and other related events organized by both Democrats and the Trump administration were planned in Milwaukee ahead of the rally at an arena in the heart of downtown. In July, Democrats are holding their national convention nearby. It will be the Republican president's first appearance in Wisconsin since July. He scheduled the rally for roughly the...

    A Wisconsin judge held three state election commissioners in contempt on Monday and ordered them to proceed immediately with purging more than 200,000 people from the state’s voter rolls. The ruling by Judge Paul V. Malloy of Ozaukee County Circuit Court doubled down on his finding last month that thousands of voters who are believed to have moved should have their registrations canceled in Wisconsin, a narrowly divided state that has become a focal point of the 2020 presidential battle. The debate over whether voters should be purged from the rolls has become a proxy for the state’s tense partisan...

    In a bid to capture one of the most quickly growing segments of American voters, American Latinos United has launched a new political action committee focused on defeating President Donald Trump in the upcoming 2020 presidential election. Led by former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and entrepreneur Fernando Espuelas, the committee will specialize in Latino voter engagement in key swing states in hopes of propelling the Democratic nominee, whoever that turns out to be, to victory. "President Trump captured about 30% of the Hispanic vote in 2016. If he falls under that threshold in 2020, key battleground states will be...

    Wisconsin judge fines state elections commission for failing to remove thousands from voter rolls A Wisconsin judge on Monday found the state Elections Commission, as well as three of its members, in contempt of court for their failure to remove thousands of people from Wisconsin voter rolls in compliance with an order he imposed in December, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Judge Paul Malloy said the three Democratic commission members who have fought his order, Ann Jacobs, Julie Glancey and Mark Thomsen, must each pay $250 a day for every day they fail to comply, while the commission itself must...

    Borden is the second giant U.S. dairy company to seek bankruptcy protection as raw milk prices and sales of milk alternatives continue to soar. Borden, whose mascot, Elsie the Cow, has smiled out at consumers from milk, cheese and butter cartons for more than 80 years, has filed for bankruptcy protection, becoming the second major U.S. dairy company to seek help as milk prices soar and more Americans turn to milk alternatives. Borden Dairy Co., which is based in Dallas, reported losses of $42.4 million in 2019. In a filing Sunday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, it listed debts...

    Republican lawmakers have resurrected a bill that would make English the official language in Wisconsin, renewing their argument that the measure will push immigrants to learn the language and make them more attractive to employers. Sens. André Jacque, Dave Craig and Steve Nass began circulating the bill for co-sponsors Monday. The proposal would declare English Wisconsin’s official language and require all state and local government officials to write all their documents in English. The bill would allow for the use of other languages in certain situations, including to protect a citizen’s health or safety, to teach another language, to facilitate...

    This didn’t take long, did it? Almost as soon as Mitch McConnell got past the 51st vote to use the rules from Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial for Donald Trump’s, he moved to seal the victory: Senate Republican leaders are preparing to move forward on a set of impeachment trial rules without Democratic support.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is on the verge of having sufficient backing in his 53-member caucus to pass a blueprint for the trial that leaves the question of seeking witnesses and documents until after opening arguments are made, according to multiple senators.That framework would mirror the...

    MADISON, Wis. — The video was just two minutes long: a sunny montage of life at the University of Wisconsin’s flagship campus in Madison. Here were hundreds of young men and women cheering at a football game, dancing in unison, riding bicycles in a sleek line, “throwing the W” for the camera, singing a cappella, leaping into a lake. “Home is where we grow together,” a voice-over said. “It’s where the hills are. It’s eating our favorite foods. It’s where we can all harmonize as one. Home is Wisconsin cheese curds. It’s welcoming everyone into our home.”
