Political revelations: Wall drops out of U.S. Senate race; Colón not seeking reelection; Plale to have a challenger?

I know I’d said “no politics till Monday” or something like that, but this stuff you just can’t overlook. A statement from the Feingold campaign saying something about Wall dropping out of the race landed in my inbox. A quick call confirmed that Terrence Wall is quitting the race against Senator Feingold. Here’s the WisPoliticsContinue reading “Political revelations: Wall drops out of U.S. Senate race; Colón not seeking reelection; Plale to have a challenger?”

Dick Leinenkugel out of Wisc. GOP U.S. Senate primary

As famed lefty political seer Zach Dubya whispered through the incense yesterday, former Doyle cabinet member Dick Leinenkugel has dropped out of the Wisconsin Republican U.S. Senate primary race. That leaves just two millionaires, and Dave Westlake. We still have not seen Westlake’s financial disclosure forms, so it’s impossible to say whether he is orContinue reading “Dick Leinenkugel out of Wisc. GOP U.S. Senate primary”

A question for Wisconsin’s Tea Party candidates (and Libertarians, too)

By now you are no doubt wishing that Rand Paul’s remarks about the Civil Rights Act would be forgotten. Sorry, buddy, it’s not. And accusing the president of being “anti-American” won’t work as a distraction. That said, I’m not here to talk about Rand Paul. I’m writing this to ask Wisconsin’s Tea Party-affiliated candidates, especiallyContinue reading “A question for Wisconsin’s Tea Party candidates (and Libertarians, too)”

Way-too-early Wisc. U.S. Senate predictions

A few weeks ago, while we were still waiting for Dick Leinenkugel to officially announce his candidacy for the U.S. Senate, I prognosticated that millionaires are unable to defeat Senator Russ Feingold. Historically, that’s been true. And now, Dave Westlake is in (and having a ball), Terrence “Terry the Tax-Dodger” Wall is in, Leinenkugel isContinue reading “Way-too-early Wisc. U.S. Senate predictions”

Feingold, Wall have new ads

Let’s accentuate the positive first with Senator Russ Feingold’s new ad, “Forward.” The ad focuses on the meaning of our state’s slogan, which is that very word, and urges continued movement in that direction. While many would like to see the state’s politics slide backwards, Feingold is pushing for movement in the proper direction. FeingoldContinue reading “Feingold, Wall have new ads”

Even Rasmussen says Feingold will win in November

You know it’s a [something] day when Republican-leaning pollster Rasmussen Reports predicts the incumbent U.S. Senator Russ Feingold would beat all three of his known and forthcoming Republican challengers. According to the latest numbers from Rasmussen, Feingold would beat tax-evading millionaire Terrence “Terry” Wall, 49%-43%. Feingold’s numbers stay even for the a match-up against DaveContinue reading “Even Rasmussen says Feingold will win in November”

Sen. Feingold gets another opponent

It’s not just Dave Westlake that our good Senator Feingold will be facing in 2010: Multi-millionaire real estate developer Terrence “Terry” Wall has entered the race. I remember Terry from my days in Madison. He and some other developer buddies tried to foil the Progressive Dane Party by registering the domain names progressivedane.com, .org, andContinue reading “Sen. Feingold gets another opponent”
