Greta-Neubauer

Why did 28 women running for the Legislature lose? Even more interesting: Of those 28 women who lost, 27 were Democrats. Democratic Rep. Greta Neubauer, of Racine, said: “Republican gerrymandering worked exactly as it was designed. Statewide, Assembly Democrats overall received 54 percent of total votes cast — but we hold just over one-third of the Assembly seats.” > Urban Milwaukee
