Capitol Notes: Will Special Elections Tuesday be Litmus Test of “Blue Wave” in Wisconsin?


Voters in De Pere, WI will select a new state senator Tuesday. Meanwhile, voters in Lodi will choose a new member of the Assembly. Special elections are being held to fill two vacancies.

Observers are wondering whether the elections could be a litmus test for the “blue wave” in Wisconsin, in this midterm election year.

Democrats are campaigning hard to win the seats, while Republicans are fighting just as hard to keep them. Editor JR Ross talked about the special elections and other issues in this week’s Capitol Notes segment.
