US House candidate Tara Johnson in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on a Halloween evening. She put up with the half-baked idea of having adult trick-or-treating and what that would look like, while also talking about some of the scary things about the US House of Representatives.

Spent the first half of the show trying to have some fun with the holiday.
The second half was more devoted to some of the revelations over the past few weeks about the current state of the House, including a new speaker, and talking generally about those bigger issues reps in DC could tackle.
Johnson was the first woman to serve as the La Crosse County Board chair — doing that nine years — where she was a member for 20 years. Before that, she was the executive director at the United Way in La Crosse.
