Of course, the discussion on La Crosse Talk PM hovered around those races — including the 3rd US House District between Brad Pfaff and Derrick Van Orden.

With Gov. Tony Evers in town at UW-L, we discussed whether campaign stops to get college students to vote is worth it — Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes was there Monday and US Sen. Bernie Sanders is there Friday. 

We also discussed campaign spending, the partisan races that could be nonpartisan, and a potential change of guard of the committee in Wisconsin that controls elections.
