After apparently recovering from COVID-19, President Donald Trump is hitting the campaign trail. Some Republicans are distancing themselves from the president, as it looks like he's unlikely to win re-election.
The Tavern League of Wisconsin had asked a court to strike down Gov. Tony Evers' public health measure limiting capacity in bars and restaurants to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The court refused.
A group of disgruntled citizens is aiming to recall Gov. Tony Evers for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the state's legislative leaders have prevented Gov. Evers from acting to address the pandemic every step of the way.
The Taiwanese technology firm Foxconn had promised to build a state of the art facility in Wisconsin that employed 13,000 people. Wisconsin offered the firm billions of dollars in subsidies for the project. Several years later, it's clear that Foxconn won't live up to its lofty expectations.
The U.S. Supreme Court overturned an earlier ruling that would have allowed ballots postmarked on Election Day, but received after Election Day, to still be counted. While it may make it more difficult for some, voters still have plenty of time to drop off their absentee ballots at drop boxes or at their local clerk's office.
The Wisconsin Badgers football team was forced to cancel Saturday's game against Nebraska after several players and coaches tested positive for COVID-19. Hopefully, no one on the team becomes seriously ill, and hopefully the game's cancellation will force people to take the virus more seriously, as it spreads uncontrollably across Wisconsin.
Joe Biden appears to have support from a wide variety of groups -- from progressive Democrats, to moderates, to even some Republicans. President Donald Trump's caustic leadership style and dangerous rhetoric have pushed many voters to the inoffensive Biden.
The final vote total from Tuesday's election is not complete yet, but many of the votes that still need to be counted are from areas that historically support Democrats. Nothing is final, but it looks like Joe Biden has a good path to win the presidency, and President Donald Trump seems willing to do anything to stop that, including not counting legal cast votes.
It seems pretty clear that Joe Biden will secure enough Electoral College votes to win the presidency, but that won't stop Donald Trump's army of lawyers from descending on key battleground states to challenge the vote count.
Gov. Tony Evers addressed the state of Wisconsin last night, and pleaded with residents to stay at home if possible. He issued a new "order" which has no enforcement component. Still, his opponents will still accuse him of authoritarian overreach.
Many of President Donald Trump's signature "accomplishments" were created by executive order. He often staged cheesy ceremonies where he would hold up the order he just signed. Most of those actions will be quickly undone by President-elect Joe Biden.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, is investigating baseless accusations of voter fraud after President Donald Trump narrowly lost the state of Wisconsin. There is absolutely no credible evidence of wide-spread fraud, but Vos called for the investigation to placate the president. Meanwhile the Assembly Speaker hasn't lifted a finger to deal with the coronavirus which is surging across the state.
Wisconsin hospitals are filling up with COVID-19 patients, and still the Republican-run Legislature hasn't done anything to combat the virus in months. Since lawmakers, led by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, aren't working, their office space could be put to better use.
On Saturday afternoon, the Wisconsin Badgers will take on team on the team at the top of the Big Ten West standings: the Northwestern Wildcats. I'm pretty sure Bucky will help them get down from that lofty position.
