Morning Links for June 15, 2015

The state budget, Russ Feingold’s PAC, the Global Water Center, Scott Walker and more.

Good morning, and welcome to Monday.

  • Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald and UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank were on this weekend’s UpFront with Mike Gousha. WisPolitics has the recap.
  • Support for Gov. Walker’s budget is “razor thin,” the JS reports.
  • Daniel Bice looks into Russ Feingold’s political action committee, Progressives United, and finds that only 5 percent of its income has gone to political candidates.
