We got into Republicans unable, again, to agree on a vote for House Speaker, after taking a long weekend off.
We also dove into the Wisconsin GOP admitting in court filings their firing of the election administrator wasn’t legal, but they did it anyway because “symbolism.”
And we got into using $545 million in taxpayer money to fund the Milwaukee Brewers stadium, which passed the state Assembly earlier Tuesday.
For some reason, however, we started the show rehashing Murphy’s failed campaign to go against Ron Johnson in the US Senate and why Democrats, in general, lost that race.
Murphy is a small business owner of Big Bang LLC in Milwaukee. He holds degrees in economics and political science from UW-Milwaukee.
