Well, that didn’t take long. On Tuesday, Wisconsin voters selected Tony Evers to serve as the state’s next Governor. Less than 24 hours later, Republicans in Madison were already threatening to curtail the power of the next Governor. Before he even takes office. House speaker Robin Vos warns that he is eager to play the role of obstructionist by taking certain powers away from Governor Evers. It is not clear what powers could be taken away, but Vos suggests there may be too much power within the executive branch. That wasn’t an issue with Scott Walker in the governor’s mansion, but apparently it would be too much with Tony Evers in charge. In other words, good luck Tony trying to get your ideas past the legislature. The gridlock is starting, and Evers has yet to even be sworn in. That is now what voters want. Voters want lawmakers of both parties to work together for the people of Wisconsin. That will be difficult with a democratic governor and a republican controlled legislature, but can we at least give it a shot before they take their ball and go home?
