Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) re-introduced a bill Tuesday to ensure that all residents of Wisconsin can watch the Green Bay Packers on television. The bill, dubbed the Go Pack Go Act, would affect 13 counties and almost 415,000 people that are part of television markets based in other states.
The political balance of power in Wisconsin may shift today as voters in six state Senate districts decide whether to recall a half-dozen Republicans and add fuel to attempts to oust first-term Gov. Scott Walker. Spending on the recall campaigns, aimed at six Republicans tomorrow and two Democrats Aug. 16, may almost triple the combined cost of all 115 state legislative races in 2010, according to the nonpartisan Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Costs may approach $40 million, the group said.
