Wisconsin state Senate Republicans took the extraordinary – and possibly illegal – step of rushing a vote that stripped unions of collective bargaining power.
Governor Walker has released emails with some of the absentee 'Wisconsin 14' that show he's willing to compromise – on some issues, to some extent.
A homecoming that seemed imminent on Monday appears to be off on Tuesday, as trust erodes between Democratic 'Wisconsin 14' and Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Labor standoff resumes.
Wisconsin's 14 Democratic absentee state senators indicate they're ready to return – because they think they've already won the war, if not this battle.
The warring factions could be taking note of voter restlessness over the long standoff between the governor and Wisconsin's state workers – or they could simply be wearing down. Either way, hint of compromise is in the air.
