MADISON (WKOW) -- Iowa caucuses kick off the first battle in the 2020 elections as Iowans are the first in the nation to cast votes.

UW Political Science Professor Mike Wagner tells us what Iowa's results mean for Wisconsinites and why it could lead to other candidates dropping out of the crowded Democratic field.

HEIGHTENED SCUINTY:

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) is closely monitoring Governor Evers's administration by hiring additional staff to keep an eye on the executive branch.

Briana Reilly with the Cap Times shed light on the controversial topic and explains the Speakers intentions and how Democrats are slammed the concept.

EXECUTIVE ORDERS:

Since taking office Governor Evers has signed 66 executive orders, three in January. They focus on helping the struggling agriculture industry, student debt and creating a new system to draw legislative maps.

Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-West Point) explains why the Governor hopes his executive orders will encourage action from lawmakers.
