Rep. Glenn Grothman says that Voter ID will help Republicans win Wisconsin in November

Good to know they're admitting now that it's about voter suppression.

Not so bold prediction: If he runs, he will be re-elected. RIP Wisconsin.

The PA House Speaker said the same exact thing in 2012. Fat lot of good it did them.

Unfortunate that disgusting Rebecca Bradley won over a qualified candidate Kloppenburg.

Bradley significantly under-performed in WOW. Is it because of the focus that was put on her social conservatism?

Good to hear Tom Barrett won re-election. Always been a big fan.

Probably - if a Democrat wins the White House in 2016, which is likely. Sad. I wonder which Democrat sacrificial lamb is going to get 45-47% of the vote this time.

By preventing voter fraud, at least to them.

Please stop mistaking this for "honesty from evil Reps, LOL," as they honestly support voter ID laws without an evil ulterior motive, much like most Democrats.

Empirical evidence has proven that voter fraud doesn't exist. It's a meme created by Republicans to suppress the vote.

So no one honestly believes it?

TBH, it does seem highly unlikely any GOP Secretary of State honestly believes in voter fraud.

I wonder if Tammy Baldwin will lose as well? Baldwin and Johnson both seem kind of doomed right now.

She would be the underdog, but I would say Toss up/tilt rep. She's a strong campaigner (see her 2012 senate campaign).

Breakdown of County Exec Race

Larson won Shorewood 55-45%, tied in Milwaukee and basically got blown out almost everywhere else. Not too surprising, Bernie college kids not voting and Larson not having very good relations with the Black community. Calling Lena Taylor "crazy" and asked if she "had taken her meds" along with prior actions when minority leader and getting a white Dem installed in a majority black leader by campaigning hard in the white suburban parts of the district which turned out in the primary. It's not really spoken of but the Black community has no love for him.

Looks like there was some Sanders/Abele voters too in some of the more working class suburbs. Both Sanders and Abele did really well West Allis.

Only one who would make a good candidate and choice out of all the names listed is Jennifer Shilling. Better candidates out there.

I like Joe Parisi as well, but Shilling is the only other good choice they listed.

What about an Abele/Cieslewicz or Abele/Tim Carpenter ticket? Both would rally the progressives to his side without disturbing the suburbs much if at all.

While I would love an Abele run and victory I doubt it would happen. His victory in April was due to Republicans and independents and he split Democrats/liberals in the city but lost them in the suburbs. Likely wouldn't be able to win the nomination.

Would Cieslewicz or Carpenter be a strong enough running-mate to get him the nomination?

The retirement hands GOP Gov. Scott Walker a second opportunity to appoint a new justice and put his imprint on the state's high court with a jurist who could then stand for election in 2020.

Yeah, his appointment won't be up to reelection until Spring 2020.
