I forgot to include these predictions with my other list: Milwaukee County Executive County Executive Scott Walker will defeat State Senator Lena Taylor. The campaign was successfully framed about taxes, and buses and parks hardly stir the masses. Taylor should have focused on the pension scandal, but that would require her to know something about […]
