joe-bidenWASHINGTON, D.C. - Joe Biden is at a crossroads in his quest for the Democratic presidential nomination, as President Trump fights an impeachment inquiry by unloading on the former vice president and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) overtakes him in some polls.

Trump and his allies are placing a big bet that they can tear Biden down by implicating him in a Ukraine scandal that has engulfed the administration and provoked House Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry.

Sen. Alberta Darling Plays Politics With Suicide Prevention Hotline PDF Print E-mail

albertadarlingGOP Senator has manufactured not one, but two delays in the release of funds to prevent suicides, all for partisan points.


MADISON – In an effort to reduce the suicide rate in Wisconsin, Governor Tony Evers allocated $220,000 over the biennium in his 2019-2021 state budget for the Hopeline, a suicide prevention hotline. However, Joint Finance Committee (JFC) Co-Chair, Senator Alberta Darling, and JFC Republicans delayed the release of those crucial funds in the name of politics. Despite the urgent need for suicide prevention funding, Sen. Darling waited months to release funds available for Hopeline that provides counseling to those contemplating suicide.

“According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, suicides in Wisconsin spiked 40 percent between 2013 and 2017. For months, Sen. Alberta Darling ignored a dire need throughout the state for urgent action on the suicide epidemic that grips communities of all kinds in our state,” said Katie Iliff, SSDC Executive Director. “Providing the necessary resources to prevent Wisconsinites from taking their own lives shouldn’t be subject to partisan politics. This is a crisis facing people in every corner of the state and the funds for the suicide prevention hotline should have been released months ago.”

This is the second instance of Sen. Darling playing politics with funds available in the state budget to prevent suicides. Governor Evers’ budget included $200,000 in mental health funding for farmers burdened by the challenge of President Trump’s trade war with international partners. Darling and JFC Republicans delayed the release of those funds for months - even as Wisconsin’s family farmers demanded assistance from state lawmakers.

“Sen. Darling has manufactured not one, but two delays in the release of funds to prevent suicides -- all for partisan points. Time and time again, she has shown that she values political games over doing what is best for the people of Wisconsin,” concluded Iliff.

elizabeth-warrenWASHINGTON, D.C. - The impeachment inquiry into President Trump has shaken up the Democratic race for the White House.

Democratic consultants and strategists say the impeachment inquiry could help some candidates like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who got on the impeachment train early and has been climbing in the polls.

The impeachment proceedings could also boost former vice president Joe Biden — who found himself at the epicenter of the controversy which launched the inquiry — underscoring his claims that he’s the candidate Trump is most wary of facing in a general election.

bernie-sandersWASHINGTON, D.C. - Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are battling to be seen as the main alternative to former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential race.

Warren has been climbing in polls in recent weeks, surpassing Sanders in some surveys.

But Sanders, who in 2016 was the progressive alternative to front runner Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential race, is holding relatively firmly in the polls. He’s been ahead of Warren and in second place in some surveys, and his team continues to believe it is being underestimated.
