Donald Trump’s hush UP money, plus UW-L political scientist, Chergosky, gets two GOP strategies to win 2024



UW-La Crosse political science professor, Dr. Anthony Chergosky, in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on Jan. 26, 2024.

On Friday’s La Crosse Talk PM, we threw UW-La Crosse political science professor, Dr. Anthony Chergosky, two strategies both Donald Trump and Wisconsin Republicans should have or, perhaps, still could take heading into the 2024 election. 

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

Spent quite a bit of time on federal politics, including Donald Trump having to pay $83 million in a defamation lawsuit — what was deemed on the show as “Hush up” money, as opposed to the hush money Trump paid to porn star Stormy Daniels.

After that, we discussed Trump’s involvement in tanking a Congressional deal on the southern border situation and how that’s a GOP political calculation. But, that’s where Republicans have it wrong and where the first strategy in winning 2024 for Trump was thrown at Chergosky — even taking a shot at the latest cold open from Saturday Night Live, where it mimicked Trump.

Then, Wisconsin politics, involving the new voting maps, and this is the second strategy thrown at Chergosky, where Republicans could have rigged elections in Wisconsin forever, had they had their act together. This hovers around news a few months ago when the Wisconsin GOP proposed what they called the “Iowa model” for drawing maps.

Before all that, however, does gum stay in your stomach for seven years? That’s how we started the show. And, we ended in the same vicinity, where a story out of Lambeau Field lost and found — found many interesting things, including dentures. Who loses their dentures at a football game?
