Brad Schimel joined me for the newsmaker interview for this week’s Half Hour Happy Hour.
In his most extensive interview since he was sworn in as Wisconsin’s Attorney General, Schimel comments on Milwaukee’s violent spring and provides updates on his efforts to combat heroin and overzealous federal bureaucrats.
Will the new Waukesha County Executive push for the imposition of a half cent sales tax?
This week’s Dailytakes Half Hour Happy Hour newsmaker interview will be with State Senator and Waukesha County Executive-Elect Paul Farrow.
In this preview clip, Farrow announces he will not be making an endorsement in the yet-to-be-called special election in the 33rd Senate District. “I am staying out,” he told me.
See and hear the author of the proposal to repeal the prevailing wage law in Wisconsin.

This was a refreshing change of pace. On this week’s episode of the Half Hour Happy Hour, I put Charlie Sykes in the interview hot seat. He sounds off on the Walker for President operation, the sleepy state of the State Supreme Court race, the reporting decisions of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and more. He looks back on his 22 years as host of Midday with Charlie Sykes on AM 620 WTMJ in Milwaukee and he gives a glimpse into his upcoming new book.
I asked him how long he planned on continuing his radio show. Watch the show to see his surprising answer and catch my weekly rundown of current events with Nik Nelson. More…
