  • Lease issue forces Trump rally to move to Waukesha, Milwaukee Mitchell Airport says

    MILWAUKEE — The Trump campaign initially planned to hold Saturday's rally at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport - but the airport denied the request. An airport spokesperson tells TMJ4 News that the airport's director notified an unidentified tenant that all special events that are "non-aeronautical in nature" are in violation of its lease with the airport. Such an event would also be in violation of the City of Milwaukee's ban on large public gatherings. "The concern for the Airport is the impact to airline flight operations, as the event originally planned for Saturday morning would require a ground stop, resulting in...
  • Over 1M absentee ballots cast in battleground Wisconsin to date

    Fox News ^ | October 23 2020 | Vandana Rambaran
    Voters in battleground state Wisconsin have cast more than 1 million absentee ballots well over a week before Election Day. Just a day after the Tuesday start of early voting, almost 80,000 Wisconsinites had cast their ballots in person, though they won't be opened until Election Day, as they are still considered absentee. An influx of mail-in absentee ballots, particularly in Milwaukee and Madison -- which historically lean blue -- arrived even before the 11-day early voting period began and are considered largely responsible for the high voter tally two weeks before Election Day.

    It might seem obvious, but in all the racket that follows a debate, the most important focus is how it affects the race, if at all.It was a solid debate, despite more questions geared toward former Vice President Joe Biden and against President Donald Trump, and with moderator Kristen Welker interrupting the president 24 times to Biden’s two, by Fox’s count. On the most important count, however, Trump won the debate hands down. Here’s three reasons why.Pennsylvania As Welker attempted to move from energy to the next topic in the last half hour of the debate, Trump asked a...

    President Donald Trump will host a rally in the conservative stronghold of Waukesha on Saturday, marking his seventh trip to the state this year. Trump’s campaign announced Thursday the president will deliver remarks at Stein’s Aircraft Services at the Waukesha County Airport Saturday evening as part of a four-stop tour that also includes events in North Carolina, Ohio and New Hampshire. The announcement comes on the heels of Trump’s rally in Janesville on Saturday. **SNIP** Asked about Trump’s planned visit, Gov. Tony Evers said he strongly encourages the president to require all attendees to wear masks and practice social distancing,...

    Days before the State of Wisconsin denied Foxconn's request for state tax credits - in the form of direct payments from the state to Foxconn's bank account - related to the "factory" built by the world's largest contract tech manufacturer in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin. The project was announced shortly after President Trump's upset election victory, but quickly ran aground as reporters complained that the facility being built by Foxconn bore little resemblance to the enormous Gen 10.5 LCD factory the company had promised. In fact, the factory isn't even big enough to serve as a smaller Gen 6 LCD...

    President Trump and Joe Biden (D) are deadlocked in battleground Wisconsin, a Susquehanna Polling and Research survey released Wednesday showed. “If the election for President were being held today, would you vote for Donald Trump, the Republican candidate, Joe Biden, the Democrat candidate, or Jo Jorgensen, the Libertarian Party candidate?” the survey, fielded October 16-19 among 500 likely general election voters, asked. Trump and Biden garnered 45 percent each, reflecting a three-point loss for the former vice president, who held a slight lead in the survey’s September 23 poll. In that survey, Biden saw 48 percent support to President Trump’s...

    MADISON — University of Wisconsin-Madison students can pick up a quick $10 — if they agree to take a COVID-19 test. A source this week told Empower Wisconsin that some students were earning as much as $40 per COVID test, so we checked into it. Meredith McGlone, UW-Madison director of News and Media Relations, said the fee is $10 for off-campus students. “To ensure we’re understanding the prevalence of COVID-19 both on and off campus, our campus testing plan includes voluntary surveillance testing of students who live off-campus,” she said in an email. “Each week we offer testing to a...

    Secret Service records appear to provide verification of documents regarding conflicts of interest regarding former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and other member of the Biden family. That's according to leading Senate Republicans investigating the matter. The senators, Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), are also questioning representations made to them by the Secret Service regarding its protective detail to Hunter. In a new letter to Secret Service Director James Murray, Johnson and Grassley outline how records they previously obtained from the Secret Service line up with, and seem to provide verification of, newly-public emails about Hunter...

    MacIver Institute ^ | October 15, 2020 | MacIver Staff
    This past spring, the State of Wisconsin received almost $2 billion from the federal CARES Act to help it manage the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, Gov. Evers made a big promise to Wisconsin’s hospitals. “Approximately $445 million is being allocated to ensure Wisconsin hospital systems and communities are prepared to handle a surge of COVID19 patients over the summer and fall,” Evers announced on May 19th. That was in addition to $40 million for ventilators, $150 million for PPE, and $40 million to help compensate for lost revenue – which hospitals began receiving in June. As for the $445...

    Blah ... blah ... blah ... ... few in either party rule out the possibility of Trump surprising again in the Rust Belt, even if polls are more favorable for Biden now than Clinton then. "My sense of what I see particularly in rural parts of the state and smaller cities is that the Trump vote is more energized now than it was four years ago," says Mark Graul, a Wisconsin-based Republican strategist who ran George W. Bush's campaign there in 2004. Privately, some Democratic operatives who are closely watching the early voting totals say they see worrisome signs that...

    BARRON COUNTY, Wis. -- A Barron County judge has ruled that a temporary restraining order against Gov. Tony Evers' order restricting indoor capacity in Wisconsin bars and restaurants be lifted, meaning that it is once again in effect. Earlier this month, Gov. Evers ordered new restrictions limiting indoor capacity to 25 percent at all bars, restaurants, and stores statewide. Many business owners complained their businesses won't survive. The Tavern League of Wisconsin sued, and last week Sawyer County Judge Don Yackel temporarily blocked the order with a restraining order. Monday, Judge James Babler removed the restraining order, arguing the plaintiffs...
  • Trump Sign 'Rally' in Dodgeville, WI - Vanity

    Here is more 'anecdotal evidence' of the support out there for President Trump and VP Pence. Members of the Republican Party of Iowa County gathered yesterday (Sunday, October 18, 2020) for a 'Sign Rally' on the Main Drag in little Dodgeville, WI, Population 4,727. This is the largest town near mine, Population 283. FWIW, there has been NO rally like this for Biden and there was NO rally like this for Trump/Pence last time around, or for ANY Dem candidate. I thought these pictures would cheer everyone up. :) Support is strong in Flyover Country!
  • Early Voting Numbers in Key States Are Surprising and Good News For Trump

    Red State ^ | 10/18/2020 | Nick Arama
    Early voting data is showing positive signs for President Donald Trump and some troubling signs for Joe Biden.Start off with the basic principle that there is expected to be more early, mail-in voting with Democrats, and more in-person, Election Day voting with Republicans voting for Trump. So, one should expect the numbers of the early voting to weigh heavily in favor of the Democrats. Now, some states are tracking along like that.But in some of the key states, turns out that isn’t the case, as NBC notes in their tracking of the early vote citing Target Smart. In Texas, which...

    Less than three weeks out from the Nov. 3 presidential election, during an interview with the Cap Times, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren touted the importance of Democratic candidate Joe Biden winning Wisconsin and the White House in a high-stakes election where "lives are on the line." The Massachusetts Democrat played up the stakes in this battleground state in Democrats' effort to oust President Donald Trump, describing it to attendees at a Madison drive-in get-out-the-vote event Saturday as one that lies "at the intersection" of this election. Slamming Republicans for “trying to steal a Supreme Court seat” ahead of the election...
