wdc-logoMADISON - I was impressed with Gov. Evers’ move this week, endorsing binding referendums. It’s one of the solutions I proposed in my book, “12 Ways to Save Democracy in Wisconsin.” As I noted there, and as I note in my posting this week, another progressive Wisconsin governor called for this reform more than 100 years ago:

But I’ve been disgusted, as I’m sure you have been, too, about the sleazy and racist ads that the GOP and their outside groups have been running against Mandela Barnes. One of the groups is a PAC funded by Diane Hendricks and Richard Uihlein, which adds a layer of corruption on top of the racism, as I explain here:

Hendricks, Uihlein Go After Mandela Barnes

money Meanwhile, our research team has come up with a list of the largest outside groups in non-federal races here in Wisconsin, both on the Republican and Democratic side. Just take a look:

Outside Electioneering Groups Have Spent $37M+

I hope you find this info useful!

P.S. I’ve enjoyed speaking in person recently to the Ozaukee County Dems, the Washington County Dems, and the Kiwanis Club of Madison on the “Anti-Democracy Movement in Wisconsin, and How to Defeat It.” If you’d like me to speak to your group, please let me know.
