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

The Wisconsin Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision Monday on whether the Nov. 3 election was conducted illegally in Milwaukee and Dane counties, as President Donald Trump has claimed.

President-elect Joe Biden won Wisconsin by about 21,000 votes but Trump is seeking to throw out thousands of ballots in the two counties, which could result in a victory for him here.

The state Supreme Court heard arguments in the case on Saturday and would need to issue a ruling by noon Monday, when Wisconsin electors are scheduled to cast the state’s 10 electoral votes for Biden.

In this week’s Capitol Notes, Marti Mikkelson asks JR Ross of wispolitics.com what he thinks of all this as the state awaits the court’s ruling.
