Even if more clean-energy jobs are coming in the next four years and beyond, “I don’t know if that’s a lot of solace to the men and women who lost their jobs this week that there might be a potential future job,” U.S. Rep.

“I think we’re doing the best we can,” Gov. Tony Evers said Thursday of the state's vaccination efforts, drawing criticism from the Wisconsin GOP. Wisconsin's vaccine rollout, although gaining speed, ranks among the slowest in the nation.
