Fleeing Dems from Indiana & Wisconsin could meet in Illinois

Posted:

URBANA, Ill. (WKOW) -- Indiana House minority leader Pat Bauer says he wants to meet with Wisconsin state Senate Democrats who've also fled to Illinois to block action on Republican-backed legislation.

Bauer said Thursday the roughly 30 Indiana Democrats he led to Illinois to avoid votes on anti-union and school-related legislation could commiserate with their counterparts from Wisconsin.

The South Bend Democrat said such a meeting would be like a pair of crime victims meeting to talk about their attacker.

Wisconsin Sen. Tim Cullen says he and his fellow Democrats are focused Thursday on the situation in their state and didn't know of any plans to meet up.
