MADISON - Wisconsin Democrats say they are increasingly optimistic about their chances of knocking of Republican Gov. Scott Walker next year, even though a top tier candidate has yet to emerge and they're still recovering from a devastating 2016 election.

Walker's approval rating has been below 50 percent since early 2014.

But their recent track record hasn't been good. Democrats are still trying to recover from Trump becoming the first Republican presidential candidate to carry Wisconsin since 1984. And Walker has been challenged plenty but has won three elections since 2010.

Police towed the car from an intersection near the Langlade County Airport (where Vang said he just came from) to a nearby gas station.  There, officers noticed bags full of what appeared to be marijuana sticking out of duffel bags in plain sight.  They got a search warrant and found 133 pounds of high-grade marijuana.
