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

The voter purge case took some more turns last week. An Ozaukee County judge again ordered the Wisconsin Elections Commission to immediately drop more than 200,000 names from the voter rolls. It's suspected that those voters may have moved and haven't re-registered. Then, an appeals court sided with the commission and again put the purge on hold while lawsuits continue. Meanwhile, the Wisconsin Supreme Court decided not to take the case for the time being.

In this week's Capitol Notes conversation, WUWM's Marti MIkkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com what it all means for the 2020 elections.
