scott-walker-at-rncMADISON - The build up to Scott Walker's speech could not have been more overshadowed by his own undoing. 

Before the convention even began, Scott Walker couldn't be found by his fellow Wisconsinites because he who was too busy schmoozing the Iowa delegation trying to re-live his failed presidential bid and couldn't be bothered. This set the stage for what we already know: Scott Walker has no interest in representing and working with the people of Wisconsin, even those in his own party, and is so dead set on running for president again in 2020 he forgot he was at the convention to help unite his party, not build upon his own ambitions.

Things only got worse-- former Republican Governor Tommy Thompson openly questioned if Walker had any reason to run again in 2018, as his approval numbers have dropped to a measly 38%.

Finally, when Scott Walker got the moment he had been eagerly anticipating-- to be in the lime light again for a few minutes to praise Donald Trump--, his speech fell totally flat. While Walker may have forgotten his muddled support of the Donald, people in the room did not. Walker previously swore to support the nominee, then backtracked and wouldn't commit to Trump, and when he finally did, it was as tepid an endorsement as they come.

Benjamin LarsonSen. Kathleen Vinehout says farewell to staff member Benjamin Larson. Legislative staff play an important role in serving the public good and many people living in the 31st Senate District know Ben because they contacted the office.


MADISON - “I make the promises and my staff keeps them,” said former state Senator Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center). I don’t know if Senator Schultz was the first to say this but his statement certainly describes the important role of Capitol staff.

Our 31st Senate District long-time staffer Benjamin Larson will be leaving soon for Minneapolis. Ben is following his wife who will take up advanced studies in the Twin Cities.

Legislative staffers touch many lives and Ben has certainly influenced the course of life for many people. He is often the first person people encounter when they contact our Capitol office.

Calling your state Senator might not be the first action taken when you have a problem with state government. The state bureaucracy is vast and varied. Usually people begin with the agency that handles the problem they face, like contacting the Department of Natural Resources if they need a permit or the Department of Public Safety and Professional Services for an issue with a license.

By the time folks get to our senate office, they are often frustrated and discouraged. The story of their problem is complex. Their situation did not fit some neat rules of state government and they feel like the proverbial square peg someone tried to pound into a round hole.

ron-johnsonMIDDLETON, WI - RFW communications director Michael Tyler issued the following statement after Sen. Johnson aired a new attack ad just hours after last night's tragedy in Nice, France:

"Only hours after the horrific attack in France, when we must pull together as a free society to defeat terrorism, Sen. Johnson sadly continues to mislead, divide, and scare. It’s shameful that Sen. Johnson is so desperate that he keeps resorting to fear mongering in the wake of tragedy and using his chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee to launch partisan attacks, instead of offering real solutions to confront this terror.

"Sen. Johnson has failed to do his job for years and has no strategy other than to point fingers like a typical Washington politician. Russ is committed to combatting terrorism and is the only one with a specific plan to defeat extremists and keep America safe."
