The Morning After

What did you do last night?


I just kicked back and watched some television...or not.
Actually, I had the pleasure of joining more than 500 of my most loyal listeners at our annual live show in Pewaukee.
Insight 2013, presented by RightWisconsin was held at the Country Springs Hotel from 6:30 to about 10 pm last night.
The live Insight show is always one of the most anticipated nights of the year and this year's event exceeded even my high expectations. 
I will be playing highlights of the show on air over the next week and the library of video of the entire event will be posted online at RightWisconsin as well.
Special thanks to our sponsors:  Digital Office Solutions, Annex Wealth Management, Smart Choice MRI, the law firm of Reinhart, Boerner and Van Deuren and the Wisconsin Club for Growth. Thanks, as well, to the team at Newsradio620 WTMJ, Bank of Memories and Flowers and the Country Springs Hotel.

I'd like to also thank not only those in the crowd, but the outstanding group of panelists and interview participants. From Governor Walker and Senator Johnson, to Chairman Priebus, Congressman Ryan and all the rest, we had a series of great conversations on the issues that matter.
It was a long day, but well worth it.
Of course, when it was over, it wasn't over. It was merely time to not only prep for today's show, but plan for RightWisconsin's content as well.
In addition to the videos from last night, we have quite a bit of new content, including our  free Key Reads, which include:

So, sure, I'm a little tired today. But no regrets. When you look at those videos, you'll see why I am so pleased with how things turned out.
Thanks, again, to all who attended and all who made the night happen.
