Wisconsin has an over-sized impact on national politics, and that’s not new. From the creation of the Republican Party and kindergartens, to the birth of public employee unions and the environmental movement. What starts in Wisconsin doesn’t stay in Wisconsin!
In his new book, author Dan Kaufman pieces together this influential history, and sees a “progressive bastion” being conquered by conservatism. He describes the effects this has on our state and the future of American politics.
