The Second Most Important Race This Year

Noam Scheiber: "Everyone knows the most important political race in the country this fall is the race that determines control of the U.S. Senate... But what's the second most important election in the country? You might be tempted to say it's another competitive race like Louisiana, Arkansas, or Colorado. But I'd argue that the second most important election isn't a Senate race at all. In fact, it's one whose winner won't even hold office in Washington, at least not right away. It's the campaign for governor of Wisconsin, which pits incumbent Scott Walker against Mary Burke, a little-known executive at the bike manufacturer Trek. And it could shape U.S. politics for years to come."
