Wisconsin parade crash case an issue in Supreme Court race

The Wisconsin Assembly is scheduled to vote on a proposal amending the state constitution to make it harder for criminal defendants to get out on bail. Backers of the change up for a vote Tuesday, Feb. 15. 2022, are hoping to capitalize on anger over the killing of six people by a driver who authorities say plowed into a Christmas parade near Milwaukee.
