Presidential campaign supporters ready to party after Wisconsin primary

After many months of organizing and these last two busy weeks of campaigning and candidate visits, not to mention the final flurry of GOTV efforts, presidential campaign supporters and volunteers in Madison and around Wisconsin will be well prepared for a chance to gather with their compatriots after the polls close in the state presidential primary on Tuesday night. At least then they will be surrounded by others with whom they can cheer or commiserate pending the night's outcome. >More
 Hillary Clinton sells hard in Madison on the eve of Wisconsin primary

Hillary Clinton's stump speech Monona Terrace on Monday night bore the symptoms of an increasingly atrophied campaign. For starters, some 16,000 fewer people turned out to see the former First Lady than did her rival for the Democratic presidential nomination nearly a week earlier at the Kohl Center. Last week's visits to UW-Madison campus by daughter Chelsea and husband Bill also appeared to have failed in their goal to mobilize the student vote for tomorrow's state primary. Middle-aged women formed the bulk of the event's roughly 3,300-person crowd. >More

 Michelle Obama speaks at the Capitol Theater in Madison

This second spousal rally running up to Tuesday's primary election offered a distinct contrast to Bill Clinton's stump appearance for Hillary at the Stock Pavilion last week.

 Mayor Dave's weekly whereabouts: Chat shows and arts evaluations

For those who don't watch a lot of Madison City Channel 12, Mayor Dave Cieslewicz hosts his own chat show called "The Mayor's Report." Let's just say it falls somewhere between "Wayne's World" and Charlie Rose on the talk show continuum. >More

Freezing rain started falling overnight, icing and flooding roads, with the precipitation changing over to heavy snows around noon.

 Questions in Dane County infant death case go unasked, unanswered

Maybe it was too much to expect. But Wednesday night, I kind of thought that Dane County's Health and Human Needs Committee would, you know, have some questions about the county's handling of a child abuse case that ended in the baby's death last summer. But the committee didn't seem to know what to ask. >More
