REVIEW & OUTLOOK:: Another Walker Vindication – WSJ

The last few years haven't been great for limited government, though Wisconsin is an exception.

By George F. Will, Friday, December 14, 2012 Rick Snyder, who is hardly a human cactus, warned Michigan’s labor leaders. The state’s mild-mannered Republican governor, in his first term in his first public office, has rarely been accused of being, or praised for being, a fire-breathing conservative. When unions put on Michigan’s November ballot two measures that ... Go To Article

BARONE: Reddish behavior in bluish states | WashingtonExaminer.com

By Michael Barone, December 12, 2012 -- It won’t get the national headlines that Michigan’s right-to-work law got, but another blue state, with relatively high union membership, Washington, has also seen a victory for Republicans, or at least for fiscal conservatism.
