RightWisconsin Editor James Wigderson normally joins Steve Scaffidi on 620 WTMJ every Monday at 9:07 AM, but this week it’s a special Tuesday edition due to the Memorial Day Holiday. This week, Scaffidi and Wigderson discussed the Starbucks shutdown to get their racial act together. Can this notoriously liberal company fix their public relations problem with a grand gesture?
Also, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett decides not to run for governor. What happened, and what does this mean? The Democrats are getting ready to hold their state convention in Oshkosh. Will it be the Tammy Baldwin show, or will some Democrat manage to steal the show? Who is most likely to get some momentum of the ten dwarfs running for governor?
On the Republican side, when will we know if the momentum state Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield) gained in the U.S. Senate race is real? What’s the latest on the Kevin Nicholson campaign? Will Bryan Steil have any real challengers in the 1st Congressional District?
Finally, it’s the curse of the traveling politician. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has an article on politicians’ traveling around the globe on the special interests’ express. Is this really a big deal, and how should we judge these junkets? Should we care more about Secretary of State Doug La Follette’s unnecessary travel on the state dime?
