The contest between the Republicans hoping to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin is getting ugly. Sparks flew late last week, as state Sen. Leah Vukmir and political newcomer Kevin Nicholson met for their first debate.
The two argued, when Nicholson accused Vukmir of not respecting his military experience. Nicholson is a former Marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Vukmir accused Nicholson of dealing a low blow, and demanded an apology.
In this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com if the exchange indicates the likely tone of the race, leading up to the August primary.
