Saturday, April 16th, 2011

As we mentioned yesterday, Wisconsin Rep.

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Welcome back to Political Progressives. We’ll be finishing up our coverage of the Wisconsin State Supreme Court Race today, and then hopefully we won’t have much to talk about in WI for awhile (at least until the Budget Repair Bill rears its ugly head.

Welcome back to Political Progressives. A lot has happened since yesterday, and we’d like to report all the developments in the Wisconsin State Supreme Court Race to you.
