Dems Try Scoring Points Against Schimel on Abortion
Abortion has again cropped up in the race for Wisconsin attorney general. Today, Democrats attacked G-O-P candidate Brad Schimel for signing a legal white paper from Wisconsin Right-to-Life. He agreed that an old state law which banned abortions could again take effect, if the U-S Supreme Court reverses the 1973 Roe-versus-Wade decision which made abortion legal. In a conference call today, state Assembly Democrat Chris Taylor of Madison said Schimel was in "cahoots" with Wisconsin Right-to-Life to make abortion a crime. Schimel denied it, saying he respects Roe-versus-Wade as the "law of the land." Even so, Schimel said he makes no bones about being pro-life. His election opponent, Democrat Susan Happ, has said she would not defend a state law that requires abortion doctors to have hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles of their clinics. That law is blocked while a federal judge considers whether it's constitutional.

WI Girls Basketball Standout to Play at Notre Dame
One of the most outstanding girls' high school basketball players in Wisconsin history will play her college ball at Notre Dame. Arike Ogunbowale (uh-ree’-kay oh-goon-bo-wall’-ay) of Milwaukee Divine Savior Holy Angels told reporters today she'll join the Fighting Irish for next season. The 5-9 senior guard chose Notre Dame over Wisconsin, Ohio State, Louisville, and U-C-L-A. She also considered six other schools earlier. Marquette was one of those. Ogunbowale is a two-time A-P state high school player-of-the-year. She averaged 23 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, and three steals per game a year ago. She has also won four gold medals while playing in international tournaments for U-S-A Basketball.

In Addition to Stumping for Buke, Obama Coming to WI to Raise Money for DNC
President Obama plans to bring in some big money for the Democratic National Committee while he's in Milwaukee on Tuesday. The Journal Sentinel said the D-N-C organized a fund-raiser at Umani Moto, a downtown sushi bar. According to an invitation, donors will pay at least 16-thousand dollars each to share sushi with the president -- and they can co-host the event by giving just over 32-thousand dollars. In an e-mail to potential donors, Lauren Durham of the D-N-C said it would be a one-hour "off-the-record event with no more than 25 people." Obama will also campaign for Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Mary Burke in Milwaukee on Tuesday. Former President Bill Clinton will speak a rally on Burke's behalf today in Milwaukee.
