Capitol Notes: Evers Goes Bold, Says He's Open To Raising 'Variety Of Taxes'


The candidates for governor traded more barbs last week. State School Superintendent and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers took the opportunity to criticize his opponent, Republican Gov. Scott Walker, in his "state of education" address. Evers said Walker's education priorities are "out of whack" and that his policies are failing Wisconsin.

Walker answered by launching an ad that warns voters Evers will increase taxes and take the state backward if he's elected. Evers responded by saying he's "open to raising a variety of taxes." In this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of, what he thinks of all these developments.
