MADISON— Polls are open in Wisconsin where the national spotlight is focused as state voters make their choice in the Republican and Democratic presidential race.

The candidates have spent the last 10 days crisscrossing the state, appearing at town hall meetings, rallies and giving speeches.

Temperatures are in the teens to the north and 20s south as early voters went to their polling places Tuesday. Rain and snow was expected later, but, it's not yet known whether it will deter some of the 1.7 million voters expected to cast ballots in Wisconsin. That would be about 40 percent of eligible voters.

About 210,000 absentee ballots have been returned to local clerks. The ballots are counted at the polls or an alternate location.

    Phone records indicate Ted Cruz used DC Madam to hire prostitutes; the gag order will be lifted on the case soon. It appears he likes to cheat on more than just elections (see Iowa, SC, and Hawaii). Cruz is completely beholden to exploiters like the Koch brothers, Goldman Sachs, Robert Mercer, etc. He is a free-trading, war-mongering, exploiter-funded puppet who won’t secure our southern border to stop the drug traffic/illegal immigration or anything else the exploiters don’t want him to.

    Cruz is the typical snake politician. It is a shame that people are so easily fooled into voting for all the slick-talking, two-faced lawyers in DC (Clinton, Obama, Cruz, etc.) selling out our country to the big exploiters.

    Super-PACs must be banned! They give a few wealthy people the ability to shape our entire political system; they allow for absurdly unequal representation! The people funding these PACs are people who have acquired their wealth from selling out America through political favors, endless wars, unfair trade deals, exploiting foreign labor, exploiting illegal labor within our borders, creating insurmountable debt for our children, and maintaining a rigged election process that ensures nothing will change. Super-PACs are a direct conflict of interest and an absolute corrupting force!

    In my opinion, any candidate who doesn’t denounce super-PACs is a snake, and a flat out traitor to America! Exploiter tools Clinton and Cruz should denounce and refuse to abuse super-PACs like Trump and Sanders have instead of letting them trample all over our democracy while feigning ignorance! Anyone who votes for these conniving two-faced lawyers, who will NEVER speak off the cuff or do anything the exploiters do not want, is voting to continue selling out America!

    If someone with Trump’s resources can’t run without being shredded by super-PACs and the exploiter-controlled media, how does someone like me or you have a chance? The answer is that, unless we are puppets (e.g. Cruz and Clinton) paid for by the exploiters, we don’t! The process is rigged; you can watch a great example of how the media takes things out of context and falsely demonizes non-controlled candidates like Trump by searching for and viewing “The Untruth about Donald Trump” video.

      I agree with uou Gary. I consider myself pretty well informed with regard to politics but when this DC madam prostitution business came out I was very disappointed. You just don’t know who you can trust. Public funded elections would be great and get rid of that useless antiquated electoral college. How can a person win the popular vote and still lose the election? Sad. Corrupt. Term limits for all senators and congressman should be mandatory. Our vote means not a whole lot anymore. God help us.


    Polls open in Wisconsin as Cruz looks to close gap on Trump, why don’t you let the voters decide that instead of these headlines Fox 6
