Talking Politics on Milwaukee’s WTMJ Radio

26 Oct , 2017  

You may have heard 620 WTMJ in Milwaukee recently did some shuffling of its line up, moving Steve Scaffidi to late mornings, a time period Jeff Wagner took over after the departure of Charlie Sykes. Wagner is now back in his old early afternoon slot.  Scaffidi invited me on this morning to go through a rundown of all things politics, both state and national. You can hear the whole segment here.

You can read more about the line up changes at 620 here.

Bannon Super PAC Endorses Nicholson for Senate

19 Oct , 2017  

Ousted White House Strategist Steve Bannon’s super PAC announced it’s supporting Kevin Nicholson, a Delafield businessman and former Democrat over Republican State Senator Leah Vukmir.  The Wisconsin State Journal called me looking for analysis of what this means to the US Senate race in Wisconsin.

Fraley, who has opposed Trump, said he’s skeptical Bannon and his allies will have much sway in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race. Attacks like those published by Breitbart “are more about raising money from national donors than about impacting what happens on the ground in Wisconsin,” Fraley said.

“These nationally driven narratives just don’t play at the grassroots level,” Fraley said.

Governor Walker has a New Video

19 Oct , 2017  

Scott Walker released a new campaign video this week, officially kicking off his re-election bid. Theo Keith of Fox 6 visited the new Edge Messaging offices in Brookfield to get my take.

“The best thing Scott Walker has going for him isn’t the Wisconsin economy, it’s the Wisconsin Democratic Party,” said Fraley.

Fraley says the big unknown is the mood of voters a year from now, and whether they take out their frustrations on Republicans like Walker.

Watch the entire story here.
