It’s been a busy, fraught and thorny campaign season in Wisconsin as national issues seep into state and local politics.
Perhaps none has held center stage as much as the abortion debate. On June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, scrapping federal protections for the procedure and turning its legality back to the states. In Wisconsin, an 1849 law bans abortion in almost all cases.
Across the country, Democrats were quick to pounce on their counterparts across the aisle for chipping away women’s rights, while Republicans tried to paint Democrats’ positions on abortion as radical. That’s pretty much exactly how it played out in Wisconsin’s two key races — for governor and for U.S. Senate. See our full report at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
