In a special Tuesday edition, RightWisconsin Editor James Wigderson joined WTMJ’s Steve Scaffidi to talk about Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI)’s criticisms of the tax cuts. The economy is growing but Baldwin is dragging out old rhetoric like “trickle down” economics. So why is Baldwin still as popular as she is? Scaffidi and Wigderson also talked about Baldwin’s vulnerabilities, including the VA hospital in Tomah and her ties to Perkins Coie.
Her opponent state Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield) is hitting Baldwin for opposing Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh without meeting him. Is Vukmir being tough enough on Baldwin, and are college-educated women going to vote for Vukmir if she continues to embrace President Donald Trump?
Speaking of Kavanaugh, will he be confirmed? Will he get Democratic votes? Do Democrats have any way of stopping the Kavanaugh nomination?
Meanwhile, how much will Act 10 be an issue for the gubernatorial race? Do voters really want to see a repeat of the protests from 2011, and is Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers vulnerable for being a participant in the protests?
Finally, just don’t do it. Nike decides to insult a large segment of their customer base by choosing Colin Kaepernick to be the face of a big Nike shoe advertising campaign.
