I sat down with Wisconsin State Senator Leah Vukmir (R-Wauwatosa) to discuss legislative developments, her role at ALEC and Governor Scott Walker’s presidential campaign. Later, I am joined by RightWisconsin’s Collin Roth for the weekly Rundown and I share my parting thought on an important reform the legislature ought to pass.

Earlier in the week a reporter asked me a series of questions about tonight’s GOP Debate. Here is what I sent her in response…
Trump will consume all of the oxygen in the room, and will be rewarded with a majority of the post-debate press coverage no matter what actually happens Thursday. With Trump in the debate, the regular expectations of debate decorum are out the window. That’s in part why the media loves Trump and gives him so much coverage. It will be interesting to see if any of the competitors try to mix it up with Walker, or if they ignore him. Trump has tried to say that Wisconsin is a mess, but his reliance on failed, generalized lefty talking points hasn’t hurt Walker. Perhaps Trump or others seize on specifics to which Walker would feel compelled to react. How he responds is important.
