Wisconsin Governor Pays a Political Price

Hosted by

The State Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin was shut down last night after Republican Senators found a way to eliminate collective bargaining for public workers, without the votes of Democrats, who were still out of the state. The lower house is expected to approve that vote today. It's all the idea of Governor Scott Walker. After winning election just three months ago with just 52 percent of the vote, he's now become a "polarizing figure." Craig Gilbert reports for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
