Control of the Senate in 2022 and the White House in 2024 goes through Wisconsin. Very MAGA Senator Ron Johnson is, by most polling, the most vulnerable incumbent Senator in either party. The Democratic Governor Tony Evers is the firewall against the GOP-controlled state Legislature and is up for re-election in 2022. If he loses, the firewall burns down and voter suppression and election subversion will come to this battleground state that Biden won by only 20,600 votes. Ben Wikler is Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin and he tells Bill what it's like on the ground in the fight to preserve democracy.
