JR Ross of wispolitics.com speaks with Marti Mikkelson for "Capitol Notes"

The results of the state Supreme Court race were finalized last week when Appeals Judge Lisa Neubauer, who was backed by Democrats, conceded to conservative Appeals Judge Brian Hagedorn. The court currently leans 4-3 conservative. When Hagedorn takes office in August, the gap will increase to 5-2 conservative.  

In this week's Capitol Notes conversation, JR Ross of wispolitics.com, tells WUWM's Marti Mikkelson that the wider gap could bode well for Republicans who control the Legislature.
