AFFILIATE, WKOW TV,
AND HOST OF CAPITAL
CITY SUNDAY, AND JEFF MAYERS,
PRESIDENT OF OUR
EDITORIAL PARTNE
WISPOLITICS.COM. THE
LATEST MARQUETTE
LAW SCHOOL POLL HAS REPUBLICAN INCUMBENT ATTORNEY
GENERAL BRAD SCHIMEL
WITH A TWO POINT
LEAD AMONG LIKELY
VOTERS OVER HIS
CHALLENGER, DEMOCRAT JOSH
KAUL. LET’S TALK ABOUT
THAT RACE. JOSH KAUL
WAITED UNTIL THE MIDDLE
OCTOBER TO START RUNNING
TV ADS. IS THAT ENOUGH TIME TO GET YOUR MESSA
ACROSS? EMILEE: PEOPLE
START PAYING ATTENTION THE
FINAL WEEKS. EARLY
ADVERTISING IS SOMETIMES
FORGOTTEN. YOUR MESSAGE IS NO LONGER STRON
WAITING UNTIL THE LAST
MINUTE CAN WORK. W
HAVE SEEN HIM INCHING
CLOSER IN THAT POLL. IT IS ONLY TWO POINTS. THE OTHER
ONES, A LOT OF PEOPL
DIDN’T KNOW WHO JOSH
KAUL WAS. IT COULD RIN
TRUE THAT THE YEAR OF THE
DEMOCRATS, THE BLU WAVE, THAT HELPS THEM. JEFF: THE TV STRATEGY IS MINOR. BRAD SCHIMMEL
HAS THE ADVANTAGE OF BEING A WAUKESHA
COUNTY FIGURE. HE ALSO
HAS THE SCHOOL GRANT PROGRAM, WHICH HE
ADMINISTERED. THEY’V
BEEN TRYING TO SEPARATE
THEMSELVES A BIT FROM
WALKER. MIKE: HE IS
TOUTING HIS DEMOCRAT ENDORSEMENTS. JEFF: HE
IS NOT VERY WELL KNOWN
EITHER. AS GOES THE
GOVERNOR’S RACE, SO WI
THE AG RACE. MIKE: DO

HAVE TO SEE. MIKE: W
WILL TALK ABOUT THE BATTLE
FOR CONTROL OF THE STATE
SENATE. A LOT OF MONEY
COMING INTO THE STATE RIGHT NOW. JEFF: THERE’S TON
OF MONEY IN THE U.S. SENATE RACE AND GOVERNORS RACE. THE DOOR
COUNTY RACE, A REMAT
BETWEEN CROSSMAN AND
THE REPRESENTATIVE — TH
SEAT IN WESTERN
WISCONSIN NOW HELD B HOWARD, THE REPUBLICAN,
AGAINST CHRIS MARION, THE DEMOCRAT. IF THE
DEMOCRATS WIN BOTH O
THOSE, THEY COULD TAKE THE
STATE SENATE. MIKE: HO
ARE REPUBLICAN LEADERS IN
THE STATE LEGISLATURE FEELING? EMILEE: I’M SURE
THEY ARE A LITTLE UNEASY. THEY HAVE A HUGE
ADVANTAGE. WHEN IT
COMES TO THE SENATE, IT
WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE
AFTER TUESDAY WHO WINS,
LAWMAKERS COMING BACK FOR A SPECIAL SESSION. THEY WILL TRY TO GET AS
MUCH THROUGH AS THEY CAN
BEFORE THEY LOSE THAT
MAJORITY. MIKE: EMIL
FANNON, CAPITAL
BUREAU CHIEF F WKOW TV, AND JEFF
MAYERS OF
WISPOLITICS.COM, GREAT
TO HAVE BOTH OF YOU WITH
US TODAY. COMING UP,
THE RACE FOR STATE TREASURER. IT’S A
OFFICE MOSTLY
STRIPPED OF ITS
DUTIES, BUT VOTERS
SAY THEY WANT TO
KEEP IT. THE TREASURER
CANDIDATES ON WHAT
THEY’D DO WITH THE
JOB, NEXT ON
