Sean welcomed the Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, to the program to discuss on going turmoil in Madison. Recently Walker’s security detail began taking "every measure necessary" to ensure his safety, as protests over the governor's budget bill spread and some of the rhetoric began overheating.
Fourteen Democratic lawmakers fled to neighboring Illinois to deprive the Wisconsin Senate of a quorum to debate the legislation. The governor explained to Sean that he wants these state senators to return to Madison so that they can continue to have a civil debate.
“All I want them to do is the job they were elected to do. They don’t have to vote for it, they don’t have to agree with it, but democracy requires that you participate. And they have to be in the arena. And the arena is right here at the state capital in Madison, Wisconsin.”
