Gov. Scott Walker announced Thursday that he granted Kimberly-Clark $28 million over the next 5 years to keep a plant in Neenah, Wis., open and save nearly 400 jobs.

The move comes after the Legislature refused to take up the original incentives packages which was four times as large as this new deal. But Walker has been determined to make a deal with paper company Kimberly-Clark.

“Quite literally, if it’s the last thing I do, I’m going to find a way. I’m going to save the jobs at Kimberly-Clark,” Walker said.

Gov. Scott Walker spoke for the first time Tuesday on the GOP bill package that seeks to limit the power of Gov.-elect Tony Evers. While Democratic lawmakers, advocacy groups and individuals were outraged over the proposals, Walker downplays the impact the bills would have. 

"For all this hype and hysteria ... the bottom line is there is not a fundamental shift in powers," said Walker at a small business event in Pewaukee.

The GOP-sponsored legislation that would diminish the power of the incoming Democratic governor and attorney general made headlines around the world. It was also the subject of an op-ed in the New York Times by political writer Dan Kaufman.

The Republican-controlled Wisconsin Legislature has approved a sweeping package of bills that weaken the powers of the incoming Democratic governor and attorney general.

The state Assembly approved the measures Wednesday morning. The state Senate did the same, less than three hours earlier, after lawmakers worked through most of the night. Now, the bills go to outgoing Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who has signaled his support.

Republican bills that critics say would strip power from Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers and Democratic Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul were the subject of a lengthy and heated public hearing Monday.

Candidates and interest groups have been doing all they can for months to try to attract voters to the polls on Tuesday. But there’s one group of people they may not be reaching effectively: Milwaukee's Latino voters.

That might be because it's hard to characterize the Latino voting population. Immigration, for instance, isn't at the top of the list for all Latino voters.

National political figures continued hitting the campaign trail on behalf of Wisconsin candidates Tuesday.

People filed into a union hall on Milwaukee’s west side to show their support for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers and his running mate Mandela Barnes. But the big draw was former Vice President Joe Biden. 

"Hello Folks. Good to see you all. It's good to be in laborer's house. The house that built the middle class," said former Vice President Joe Biden.

In his only Wisconsin stop before the midterm elections, President Donald Trump rallied thousands of supporters in Mosinee on Wednesday. He urged them all to go to the polls Nov. 6 and vote for Republican candidates Scott Walker and Leah Vukmir.

President Trump started off the rally by thanking Wisconsin voters for the important role they played in the 2016 election. That’s when — for the first time in decades — Wisconsin went red in the presidential election, helping to put Trump over the top.

More than 1,000 people packed into a ballroom on the second floor of the student union at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee on Monday. Multiple speakers talked about pressing issues to galvanize democratic voters. Among them were gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers, his running mate Mandela Barnes, U.S Rep. Gwen Moore and Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin. However, it was her Senate colleague Bernie Sanders who was the headliner.

Sanders was met with thunderous applause as he took the stage. And he took a moment to speak directly to young voters.

Camacho's Bar, a watering hole in Milwaukee's Walker’s Point, was the place of reunion for about 15 locals last Friday night. Many were shouting in Spanish at the TV as Cuban American Gio Gonzalez threw the pitch to kick off the Brewers first game of the National League Championship Series.

This year, for the first time, Milwaukee has achieved a perfect score on the Municipal Equality Index. The MEI looks at how LGBTQ friendly a city’s laws, policies and services are. 

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett stresses the importance of this report and Milwaukee’s progress: "When we send that message that we are an inclusive city, we are sending a message of love and understanding and respect — and that’s important for us to do."

The Brewers are back in town Friday after sweeping the Colorado Rockies in the first round of the playoffs. So, it’s no surprise that there's an increase in demand for Brewers tickets. But tickets aren’t so easy to get this late in the game — and for reasons you might not expect.

I called a couple places to see if I could get tickets to Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Miller Park. First stop? The Brewers ticket office.

The Milwaukee Brewers won their first playoff game 3-2 on Thursday. Diehard fans showed up to Miller Park hours before their game against the Colorado Rockies. Fans were busy playing music, grilling and tailgating.

“Do you want to see my tattoo to show you I really love the Brewers?" said Donald Matovich, a tailgater who loves the Brewers so much that, yes, he has a tattoo to prove it.
