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

Republican and Democratic leaders met at the State Capitol last week to place names on the state presidential primary ballot. Democrats approved 14 names for the April 7 election. They include Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. But GOP officials submitted and approved only one name — that of President Donald Trump, even though other Republicans have thrown their hats into the ring.  

WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of about the decision in this week's Capitol Notes conversation.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
