Five Things to Take Your Mind Off of the 2012 Presidential Election

It’s election day! Know why I’m so excited? Because it means we don’t have to see all of these dang political commercials all over the place anymore. I think we all of the negativity that goes hand-in-hand with political campaigns gets really old, really fast. And it’s not just all over the television: it’s all over social media too!

I forgot about the election-VOTE

Vote. That’s the only endorsement I have.For the last 3.5 years, the President has been fighting for reelection and the slew of republican candidates have been stumping to take his seat.

GOING RED!

By Anne WallWe're doing our best to turn Wisconsin into a "red" state in support of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

Our Binders of Accomplishments Under Governor Mitt Romney
