Politics Day

Apr 10, 2012

A recall election of Wisconsin governor Scott Walker is set for June 5th.  That comes a year after Walker signed a bill removing collective bargaining rights from some public sector unions.  Join host Ben Kieffer as we take a look at our neighbors to the northeast in what some political analysts are calling a microcosm of what might occur on a national level.  Plus former Pennsylvania senator and winner of the Iowa caucuses Rick Santorum has suspended his campaign and U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley’s tweeting is back in the news after referring to President Barack Obama as “stupid.”  Our guests this week are Dennis Goldford, Professor of Politics at Drake University and Tim Dale, Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay.
