Milwaukee Record: 'Gerrymandering, Republican supermajorities, and 4 state legislature races to watch in the Milwaukee area'
Let's take a look at the key legislative races happening around Milwaukee.
The Recombobulation Area is a six-time Milwaukee Press Club award-winning weekly opinion column and online publication written and published by veteran Milwaukee journalist Dan Shafer. Learn more about it here.
In the elections for the Wisconsin State Legislature this November, Republicans are favored to win a supermajority in the Senate and have a real chance to win a supermajority in the Assembly. If you missed the full breakdown of all 116 of those races, see our preview of the Senate here and of the Assembly here.
And with the help of our friends at Milwaukee Record, we’re also taking a closer look at the key races in the Milwaukee area, too.
This column is published in partnership with Milwaukee Record.
Next week, on Wednesday, Oct. 5, Milwaukee Record will host The Roast of Milwaukee. The event will take place at The Cooperage and will be hosted by Kristin Brey of “As Goes Wisconsin.” A portion of the show’s proceeds will be donated to Milwaukee Women’s Center. Learn more about the event and buy your tickets here.
