Marti Mikkelson and JR Ross discuss the week in politics in our "Capitol Notes" conversation.

Republican Congressman Sean Duffy announced last week that he is stepping down from the job. Duffy represents northern Wisconsin and says his last day will be Sept. 23. He says he wants to spend more time with his family, especially since discovering his baby will be born next month with a heart condition.

In this week's Capitol Notes conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross, of wispolitics.com, when Gov. Tony Evers might call a special session — and whether Democrats can flip the heavily Republican-leaning seat.
