La Follette says Wisconsin's election system works so why change it
Wisconsin hasn't had any problems with elections since the state Elections Board was established, so changing the current system isn't very realistic.
That's how Doug La Follette responds to his primary competitor Scot Ross' idea that election oversight should return to the office of the Wisconsin Secretary of State.
"I think it's a real mixed issue," said La Follette. "Having the oversight of elections rest with an elected official gives elections a higher profile."
