Campaign 2010 Corner Table: Northwest Wisconsin
Three observers with more than 100 years of reporting and analyzing northwest Wisconsin elections sat down with WisconsinEye Senior Producer Steve Walters in a Corner Table discussion on Oct. 7 to talk about this campaign season. They were Dean Kallenbach, senior regional manager of Wisconsin Public Radio; Mort Sipress, a UW-Eau Claire political science professor from 1966 until 2000, and retired radio news reporter and journalism instructor Henry Lippold. They talked about the first 7th Congressional District election in 41 years without an incumbent and Eau Claire-area legislative races that will help determine which party is in power for the next two years. The interview was taped at WPR’s Eau Claire studio.
