Tuesday is the big day. Voters across Wisconsin will head to the polls to decide whether Gov. Scott Walker keeps his job. As WUWM’s LaToya Dennis reports, Wisconsin eyes won’t be the only ones riveted on the results. If the tens of millions of dollars groups have pumped into Wisconsin are not enough to prove how significant the recall race is, maybe this did the trick…
There does not appear to be much indecision among Wisconsin voters, about whether they think Scott Walker should remain governor. The latest Marquette Law School Poll estimates that 97 percent of potential voters know whether they will pick the incumbent or Tom Barrett in next week’s recall election.
WUWM reporters visited several diners about town where customers discuss issues of the day, and we found many establishments filled with like-minded voters.
It’s Memorial Day, a day set aside to honor our nation’s war dead. We thought it was an appropriate time to begin a new series on Wisconsin soldiers from a long ago war – the American Civil War, the bloodiest conflict fought on American soil. Although the war is typically characterized as battle between the North and the South, the then-Western frontier of Wisconsin played a pivotal role.
