The outcomes of these elections could have a major impact on the future of the private option, both in terms of impacting the tight margins to keep the necessary supermajority and signalling which way the political wind is blowing to Republican lawmakers on the fence about their vote in 2015. /more/

  • Statement from Rhonda Wood appears to violate judicial rules

    April 4, 2014
    The knocks against Court of Appeals Judge Rhonda Wood keep piling up. She's been at the vanguard of the Republican, business-lobby takeover of the non-partisan judiciary.

Now, after responding to questions raised by Blue Hog Report about her eligibility to run for Supreme Court, Blue Hog's Matt Campbell argues that Wood has violated judicial rules. /more/
