The Latest: Defending a 4-3 Majority

To be frank, there was not a lot in the news this week relating to the U.S. House or Senate. All of the chatter is about the Wisconsin Supreme Court election and the Trump indictment. So, we will keep the update short.

Something of note, if you haven’t seen it already, FreedomWorks for America announced grassroots efforts in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race to help get Justice Daniel Kelly elected. Check out our press release here and tweets here!

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: 5 takeaways from the only Supreme Court election debate. Daniel Kelly and Janet Protasiewicz take the gloves off

  • Conservatives are defending a 4-3 majority on the state’s highest court.
  • “The fight to flip the court is drawing more firepower from Democratic interests for a total price tag that’s already the highest ever spent on a single judicial election.”
  • “Protasiewicz and Kelly met for just one debate after Protasiewicz declined to appear at other events with Kelly ahead of the April 4 election.”
  • Here are the 4 most important takeaways from the debate:
    • “Protasiewicz signals the court could make changes to Act 10, voting policies if elected.”
    • “Kelly says he won’t accept millions from the state GOP but has received party support.”
    • “Kelly distances himself from anti-abortion group’s endorsement.”
    • “Protasiewicz and Kelly clashed on nearly every issue except one — the constitutional amendment that will appear on the April 4 ballot on cash bail. Both candidates said they would like to see the amendment pass.”

NPR: Potential for criminal indictment hangs over Trump campaign

  • “The Manhattan DA has been investigating financial dealings of the Trump Organization over the years, as we know. But the focus in reports this week has been that payment that was called hush money that Trump made years ago to Stephanie Clifford.”
  • “This request to appear is more than a courtesy. It’s required by New York state law, and it gives the subject a chance to possibly ward off the indictment. At the same time, no one expects Trump to even try to do that. His attorneys will tell him, don’t do it; don’t testify. And the indictment would be expected to follow in a matter of weeks.”
