Wineke Touts Dems' Election Agenda

In a new interview leading up to the state Democratic convention in La Crosse, state Dem Party Chair Joe Wineke portrays Gov. Jim Doyle as a strong fiscal manager and Republican opponent Mark Green as a partner with George Bush in running up "huge budget deficits" to finance an unpopular war.

Wineke also discusses potential fallout from the trial of Georgia Thompson (it won't affect the race in November, he says) and the value of primary challenges in statewide and legislative races.

See a webcast of Wineke's full interview with WisPolitics.com Editor JR Ross.
