Morning Links for Feb. 17, 2016

Chris Larson narrowly tops Chris Abele in the spring primary, late night legislation in the state capitol, Bucks trade rumors and more.

Good morning, and welcome to Wednesday.

  • The spring primary was held yesterday, and most surprising result was in the race for Milwaukee County Executive, where state Sen. Chris Larson narrowly topped incumbent Chris Abele. The two will debate Monday at the Italian Conference Center in an event held by the Public Policy Forum.
  • The Wisconsin State Assembly adjourned after 2 a.m. last night after passing several bills. WisPolitics’ Quorum Call blog runs through the late night legislation.
