USA Today-Wisconsin community columnist Casey Hoff writes in a piece that appears in the Sheboygan Press that Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate Brian Hagedorn's opinions about a U.S. Supreme Court decision declaring sodomy laws unconstitutional are fair game in the current judicial election.

Caffeinated Politics blogger Gregory Humphrey is taken aback by the insinuations that were made prior to today's primary election that only African-American candidates be elected to help change the School Board and city to better deal with race. That's nonsense -- we need to elect the best candidates, regardless of race, he insists.
