Capitol Notes: First Eric Holder, Now Barack Obama Group Involved in Wisconsin Fall Elections

Jun 19, 2018

A group led by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder worked to elect Democrats in last week's special elections in Wisconsin.  One of the two open legislative seats went to a Democrat, while a Republican captured the other.  

Now, another big Democratic national organization is getting into the mix.  It's a group formed by former President Obama.  The organization says it's targeting Republican Gov. Scott Walker in November.  It's also trying to get a Democrat elected to the seat currently held by House Speaker Paul Ryan.

For this week's Capitol Notes conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com, about the significance of the money.
