Thread: So, here's something I admittedly have a biased perspective on. I know everyone is still thinking about the April 7th election (please go to to vote absentee!)... #wipolitics
After the dust settles on the Spring Election, the focus will be on the November partisan election (Presidential, Congressional, State Assembly, State Senate, etc). Nomination signature collection period starts April 15th.
State Assembly candidates (yes, I'm one this year) have to collect a *minimum* of 200 valid signatures in their district (you of course should want to collect many more than that). Congressional candidates need to collect minimum 2,000 signatures in their districts.

1/ THREAD: Background on purging voter rolls in Wisconsin. A circuit court judge in conservative Ozaukee County ordered the purge of 234,00 voters from the rolls.… #wipolitics #votingrights
2/ The conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) sought an injunction to purge the rolls within 30 days of voters who may have moved. A state election board notified these voters by letter in October to update their addresses.
3/ Three voters sought a purge of the rolls with WILL's representation. (Taxpayer standing for causes of action is relatively expansive in Wisconsin.)

Ok guys, tonight we'll be doing a thread on last week's Wisconsin Supreme Court race. Democratic-aligned Rebecca Dallet beat GOP-supported Michael Screnock by almost 12%.
#SCOWIS #wopolitics #ElectionTwitter
Compared to Clinton, who narrowly lost, Dallet had a lot of upside. She performed better in 69 of 72 counties. Further, looking at partisan loyalty, nearly 2/3 of her municipalities (496 of 757) voted for Trump. She flipped 24 counties. Only 2 HRC towns went to Screnock.
In the 2016 #WISen race, Sen. Ron Johnson (R) won a rematch w/ex-Sen. Russ Feingold (D). Feingold ran under HRC overall, but better in rural areas. As a result, there were fewer Johnson municipalities for Dallet to flip. She still flipped 432, as well as 18 counties.

.@PollsAndVotes says he talks a lot about party polarization, but points to this chart of WI Supreme Court race outcomes and sees “very substantial variation in outcome” in part based on incumbency

Hello @BloggingBlue – I just want to be clear – you are attacking me for attacking the right-wing candidate? 1/?
doesn’t regret his anti-women’s choice protests. As a lawyer, he worked to create the #Gerrymandered legislative maps and he defended Act10 in front of #SCOWIS. 2/?
Look -- @JudgeScrenock knows that he doesn’t have to work to reach out to voters, because his friends in the special interest club will come to his rescue in 2018. He literally says nothing. 3/?
