Last week, we saw Republican Gov. Scott Walker inserting himself into the national anthem debate. He called on all NFL players to stand during the anthem, instead of taking a knee. In doing so, Walker sided with President Trump, who's been vocal on the issue.
It happened during a rough week for Trump, as a book and an op-ed came out, which appear to show members of his administration are very critical of him. And, Walker already has been saying that this midterm election year could be threatened by a "blue wave" that could sweep him out of office, as he's locked in a tight race with Democratic challenger Tony Evers.
In this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com, why Walker entered the foray, and if he's taking a risk by aligning himself with Trump.
