Colorado Senator Mark Udall is introducing a bill that would prohibit the use of public money to pay for political party conventions. The bill addresses the use of Presidential Election Campaign Funds (PECF) - which have few federal restrictions on how that money is used.
Wisconsin votes on recalling its governor Tuesday, and much has already been made of that vote's potential implications beyond the state.
But for now, this historic moment belongs to the 3 million-plus Wisconsinites registered to vote. Most of them are expected to turn out, and those who do will be thinking about the implications for Wisconsin more than the prospects for fallout elsewhere.
