Among the topics included on La Crosse Talk PM with Rothschild were how the state ended up in a position to bring in that “outside money” we always hear complaints about from candidates.
We also hit on the US Senate race between incumbent Republican Sen. Ron Johnson and Democrat Mandela Barnes, who is Wisconsin’s lieutenant governor, which has hit a price tag of around $200 million, while the governor’s race is about $114 million.
Began the show, however, just breaking down election day, which included a quick update La Crosse County Clerk Ginny Dankmeyer (20:45).
