Sen. Coggs: Senate absence is energizing protesters

Posted:

ILLINOIS (WKOW)-- State Democratic Senator Spencer Coggs from Milwaukee says the absence of the senators speaks volumes, energizing protesters across the state.

Senator Coggs reiterated Wednesday what other Senators have said: They will stay away from the Capitol for as long as it takes.

"I'm fine," said Senator Spencer Coggs. "We're going to be here until it's over. We want to go back, but we can't until the governor asks us to come back and take workers rights off the table."

Senator Coggs says he has gotten threatening, racially-motivated phone calls since leaving the state last week.
