The field of Republican candidates to challenge Senator Russ Feingold is up to four now...
And the fourth, Oshkosh businessman Ron Johnson, thinks he has the best chance of all those candidates to send Feingold packing after 18 years. Johnson is traveling with his family this week to announce his run for the Republican Senate nomination. In La Crosse today, Johnson pledged to listen to the people...but he hasn't decided whether to follow Feingold's example of regulat listening sessions if he's elected.
THE STORY OF THE SLEEPY TRUCK DRIVER HAULING A LOAD OF ENERGY DRINKS THROUGH WISCONSIN WAS GOOD FOR SOME LAUGHS ON CABLE NEWS CHANNELS THIS WEEKEND...
BUT LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ISN'T LAUGHING. CANADIAN DRIVER BEANT GILL IS BEING CHARGED WITH FELONY ENDANGERMENT AND FLEEING POLICE ON A 20-MILE TEAR THROUGH MONROE COUNTY. JUDGE MICHAEL MC ALPINE SET GILL'S BOND AT 20-THOUSAND DOLLARS CASH. GILL IS FORMERLY FROM INDIA, AND NEEDS AN INTERPRETER TO COMMUNICATE IN COURT. STATE POLICE SAID GILL'S TRUCK WAS WEAVING ALL OVER THE HIGHWAY. A BOMB-SNIFFING DOG DETECTED SOMETHING SUSPICIOUS IN THE TRUCK, BUT A BOMD SQUAD FOUND NO EXPLOSIVES IN THE TRAILER.
HE ONLY GETS 10 YEARS IN PRISON, BUT THAT'S THE MOST HE COULD GET FOR HIS CRIME...
FORMER LA CROSSE BANKER DONALD JOHNSON IS GOING TO PRISON FOR STEALING NEARLY A MILLION DOLLARS FROM THE RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS OF DOZENS OF PEOPLE. JOHNSON SAID IN COURT HE HAD 'REMORSE' AND 'REGRET,' AND WILL COMPLY WITH THE COURT ORDER TO REPAY CLOSE TO 200-THOUSAND DOLLARS OF WHAT HE HAD TAKEN. JOHNSON LEFT HIS FAMILY IN 1995 AND DISAPPEARED FOR 14 YEARS BEFORE TURNING HIMSELF IN.
A budget crisis has been at least temporarily averted in Minnesota. Lawmakers in St. Paul voted on a deal this morning to erase a three billion dollar deficit. No new taxes, which is nice, says Republican state rep, Greg Davids, but no as many cuts as he'd like to see, either. He says he's continually surprised by the spending appetite that lawmakers have in the state's capital. Odd, considering the impending budget shortfalls.Davids says the state's next budget could face a defict of six billion dollars unless needed cuts to programs are made.
