Wisconsin’s partisan primary elections are one week away. Several Democrats running for governor want to drastically reduce the state’s prison population. Governor Scott Walker says he wants to reduce it the right way, by ensuring inmates have the tools to suceed upon release.
“But just cutting it in half is dangerous,” Walker said during a Tuesday press conference at headquarters of Milwaukee’s police union, where he warned Democrats would release violent offenders. He then tweeted on the subject, throughout the afternoon.
One of eight Democrats will face Walker in the November general election.
