Judge blocks Republican-backed Wisconsin early-voting law
Thu, 17 Jan 2019 16:05:55 -0500
Judge blocks Republican-backed Wisconsin early-voting lawThe early-voting bill was part of a package of laws that the Republican-controlled legislature passed during a rare all-night lame-duck session in December, which included measures aimed at curbing the powers of incoming Democratic Governor Tony Evers. The effort drew criticism from Democrats that Republicans were effectively ignoring the will of the voters after Evers' victory in November's midterm election ended eight years of total Republican control of the state capitol. The state's largest cities, Milwaukee and Madison, offered six weeks of early voting last year, while smaller municipalities with fewer resources provided shorter windows.

Thu, 17 Jan 2019 14:33:43 -0500
Teachers' strike tests Los Angeles mayor's White House hopesThe move may help Garcetti, who is considering a presidential run but has not officially declared his intentions, raise his national profile. Strategists said it also could tie his reputation to the outcome, with a quick deal giving him a boost while drawn-out scenes of the union's 30,000 teachers, about a third of whom are Latino, on picket lines could harm his standing with key Democratic constituencies. "Before the strike, I had this in the column of things that would be really hard on his presidential campaign," said Raphael Sonenshein, the executive director of the Pat Brown Institute for Public Affairs at California State University in Los Angeles.
