Wisconsin Republicans continued their push on Tuesday to weaken Gov. Tony Evers' powers, holding a hearing on a constitutional amendment prohibiting him from using his veto pen to increase spending.
In a sign of how difficult it will to reach a deal on road funding, 52 percent of the respondents to the latest Marquette University Law School pool said they don't support raising gas taxes or fees for that purpose.
The Wisconsin Assembly overwhelmingly approved a bill on Tuesday that would force health insurers to cover pre-existing conditions should Republicans succeed in achieving their long-held goal to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, heading off likely criticism of GOP legislators on the 2020 campaign trail.
Gov. Tony Evers, in his first State of the State speech Tuesday, called on the Republican-controlled Legislature to scale back a corporate-tax credit to pay for reducing income taxes, make sacrifices to find a bipartisan transportation plan and work together to bolster spending for schools.
Wisconsin Assembly Republicans plan to release a proposal on Thursday they say would help middle-class families, as they and Gov. Tony Evers squabble over a bill designed to protect people with pre-existing health conditions.
The federal guarantee of health-insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions is too politically popular to be eliminated, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson said on Tuesday.
A Republican leader in the Wisconsin Senate says support is "unanimous" among GOP senators for guaranteeing that people with pre-existing health conditions have access to health insurance.
The Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin outraised her Republican opponent, state Sen. Leah Vukmir, more than 2-to-1 in the most recent reporting period.
U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin is urging Democrats to vote early, saying health care is on the ballot.
Leah Vukmir is used to being the underdog. Few gave the Republican U.S. Senate candidate from Wisconsin much of a chance of defeating her better-funded primary challenger last month, but she prevailed thanks largely to support from the party establishment.
Gov. Scott Walker on Tuesday touted his new plan to give college graduates $5,000 over five years if they promise to stay in Wisconsin, while a Democratic group launched an attack ad featuring a woman with breast cancer who says Walker doesn't care about families like hers.
