Wisconsin's 7-day average of new Covid cases has increased nearly 300% since September 1.

"My members are good people — they're hard-working. They care about their community. They care about their employees," Tavern League lobbyist Scott Stenger said. "They are seeing generations of their business wiped away."
That's not how it looked back in May.



No other state is covered by such a large amount of red.

GET ME REWRITE: Sauk County Wisconsin is already making amends for its 2016 brain cramp

 

In November 2016, Republican Donald Trump won the county by 109 votes with 47.2% of the total.




In November 2018, Democratic challenger Tony Evers beat two-term GOP incumbent Scott Walker by 3,105 votes with 54% of the total.


In April 2020, liberal challenger Jill Karofsky beat Scott Walker-appointed conservative Daniel Kelly by 3,703 votes with nearly 60% of the total.


No code ot break or puzzle to crack this year.  Just look at the numbers.  Sauk County voters have already revealed their hands.

"It's hilarious," said Kari Walker, whose city and county (Sauk) typify the swingiest tendencies of this battleground state at the forefront of the 2020 election. 
"I think all the journalists are hoping that somebody in an interview is going to help them break the code, crack the puzzle, and they're going to figure out why Sauk County has picked the winner (so often), and 'Who is Sauk County going to pick this time?'" said Walker, co-owner of Beastro & Barley, a downtown tavern and restaurant.

The Sonny Boy chronicles: Anti-mask Waukesha County executive gets the virus



From March 11 through July 31, Waukesha County reported a total of 805 Covid cases, an avarege of 5.6 new cases per day.

Since July 31, the county has reported an additional 9,130 cases, an average of 120 new cases per day.

The numbers belie Sonny's optimism.

      Wisconsin 2020 elections: Who's running in the 83rd State Assembly district?

       


      2018, Chuck Wichgers (R-Muskego) easily won a 2nd term in the Assembly.  He represents a deep red district.

      Alan DeYoung describes himself as 'moderate, pro-business Democrat, fiscally conservative'.  The district includes a chunk of Waukesha County.  This is Alan's first run for elected office.
