Journal Sentinel reporter Gilbert goes 'On the Issues' to discuss Wisconsin's political climate

November 7, 2017

MILWAUKEE — Craig Gilbert, Washington Bureau Chief for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, will be the featured guest in an upcoming "On the Issues with Mike Gousha," Tuesday, Nov. 14, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School's Eckstein Hall.

Gilbert is currently engaged in a special reportage project concerning the political climate during the Trump presidency and the shifting electorate that helped produce it. Gilbert will be exploring the voting groups, battleground regions and electoral trends within the state of Wisconsin that shaped the 2016 election here — and that will determine the outcome of the 2018 midterms, with high-profile political figures Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Tammy Baldwin and House Speaker Paul Ryan all facing hotly contested reelection fights.

Like his 2014 "Dividing Lines" series, Gilbert's project is supported by a fellowship from Marquette Law School's Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education.

Gousha, an award-winning broadcast journalist, is the Law School's distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His "On the Issues" series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School's commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha's "On the Issues" conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region's leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.

Seating for members of the general public is available at no cost; registration is required and is available online. Members of the media who are interested in attending should contact Chris Jenkins in the Office of Marketing and Communication.
