UW-La Crosse political scientist Chergosky on catching Donald Trump, lack of candidates in local elections



UW-La Crosse political science professor, Dr. Anthony Chergosky, in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on Jan. 5, 2023.

UW-L political science professor, Dr. Anthony Chergosky, in the WIZM studio Friday for La Crosse Talk PM talking about the Republican strategy in the Iowa caucuses and why there might be a lack of candidates in local races.

We began the show wasting no time diving right into the race to become the Republican nominee for president, with the Iowa caucus just 10 days out. WIZM’s Brad Williams also joined in on that conversation.

We also discussed how important debates are from the presidential level on down to local elections.

That led to a discussion about the lack of interest in local races — not just from a voters’ perspective but from candidates, themselves.

The La Crosse School Board has three open sets — incumbents chose not to seek re-election — and only two candidates will be on the ballot. La Crosse County Board has 30 seats up for election and 10 of those will be uncontested.

No election on the spring ballot will have a primary.
