Tom Barrett to undergo surgery

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Milwaukee mayor and democratic candidate for governor, Tom Barrett will undergo surgery on his hand Wednesday.

Barrett's right hand was shattered last summer when he tried to stop a domestic dispute, and a man hit him with a tire iron.

Barrett says he has about 50 to 60 percent use of his hand.

The surgery is expected to last an hour and a half.
