On this day in 1973, Secretariat wins the U.S. Triple Crown.
U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin is a favorite to win re-election next year. See Baldwin as the Prohibitive Favorite and Closer to Unbeatable (‘Mike Gallagher would be a stronger opponent for Baldwin but he likely won’t run; Tom Tiffany will be a much easier opponent for Baldwin and he likely will run’).
Gallagher’s now announced he’s not running:
Wisconsin Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher said he will not run for Senate in 2024, leaving wide open the Republican field for a seat in a key battleground state that could help decide who controls Congress’ higher chamber.
Gallagher told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he will not challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin next year and rather plans to run for a fifth term representing the state’s 8th Congressional District.
Gallagher was the only top-tier prospect for the WISGOP. A poll that The Bulwark cited today shows he was running behind utter loon David Clarke:
It’s only a nutty WISGOP that would favor Clarke over Gallagher. One is reminded of the sheriff’s observation about zombies in the original Night of the Living Dead: “Yeah they’re dead, they’re all messed up.”
