Debate night. It's on. #WISen

First question: marijuana legalization. Ron Johnson says it should be decided state by state, and that states should "look seriously at the harm being done by the legalization of marijuana."

Mandela Barnes is clear—"I've long supported the full legalization of marijuana" #WIsen
Second question on bail reform. The question (accurately!) frames the choice—should pre-trail detention be based on question of whether the accused might be dangerous and/or might skip trial... or based on their ability to pay?

RoJo goes for diversion/fear, predictably.

Amazing @janemayer story at @CapTimes IdeasFest where she reveals that Greg Koch told her in 2010 that his Dad was on the Hindenburg.

“Really, why was he on the Hindenburg?”

“Because he had business with Germany.”

Nazi Germany, that is.

Good question from Maraniss: “Why doesn’t the left have their own Kochs?”

@janemayer - “They got complacent and didn’t think these guys in Wichita were a threat.”

She says @davidaxelrod DIDN’T KNOW WHO THEY WERE in 2010. DC Dems still shrug today.

Mayer brings up Powell Memo, which said that corporations had to take over the courts, the pulpits, the colleges and universities, and create “think tanks” to sell the BS.

Their alt universe must be smashed.

Roll the drums: #LaborFest is here! #wiunion #UnionsForAll #UnionStrong
Proud to march with thousands of Wisconsin workers at #LaborFest in Milwaukee today—including our hardworking Lieutenant Governor, Mandela Barnes!
At the LaborFest in Madison, proud to celebrate a landmark victory: after eight years of a governor who tried to crush working people, Wisconsin rose up and elected a governor who believes in them. Wisconsin works best when we say “union yes!”

Hello @BloggingBlue – I just want to be clear – you are attacking me for attacking the right-wing candidate? 1/?
doesn’t regret his anti-women’s choice protests. As a lawyer, he worked to create the #Gerrymandered legislative maps and he defended Act10 in front of #SCOWIS. 2/?
Look -- @JudgeScrenock knows that he doesn’t have to work to reach out to voters, because his friends in the special interest club will come to his rescue in 2018. He literally says nothing. 3/?
