About the Author

Mike McCabe got his start in life on the farm milking cows and working the land with his family. He brings that farming background and a lifetime of experience in politics, journalism and nonprofit leadership to his writing. He is now executive director of Our Wisconsin Revolution and ran a spirited underdog campaign for governor of Wisconsin in 2018. Before that he started the grassroots group Blue Jean Nation. For 15 years Mike led the independent watchdog group Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. In that role, Mike blew the whistle on wrongdoing by elected officials and earned a reputation as one of the nation's best political money trackers. Under his leadership, the Democracy Campaign was named the Citizen Openness Advocate of the Year in 2012 by the Society of Professional Journalists and Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council. In 2015 the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Journalism honored him with its Distinguished Service Award. While leading Blue Jean Nation, Mike produced a radio commentary series that was among the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association's 2016 Awards for Excellence winners for best editorial commentary in large market radio programming. He appeared in the documentary films Citizen Koch (2013) and Pay 2 Play: Democracy's High Stakes (2014), and previously authored Blue Jeans in High Places: The Coming Makeover of American Politics, which is in its fourth printing. The Progressive magazine named it one of the best books of 2014.
