Baldwin: Most in Wisconsin 'much more focused' on issues other than Mueller report
WESTON - Congress will see the full Mueller report by mid-April, if not sooner.

Attorney General Bill Barr made the promise in a letter to leading lawmakers Friday afternoon.

Barr released his primary conclusions over the weekend, but will now work to edit the entire 400-page document for release.

In Weston on Friday, Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin said she's interested in seeing the report. But she thinks people in the state are less concerned about it than people in Washington.

"It's very clear to me that the people I interact with day-to-day in Wisconsin are much more focused on basic economic issues [and] education," Baldwin said. "Most people just want Washington to get its act together and focus on the issues that they care about."

Still, Baldwin will be looking for a few things in particular.

"What the contacts were, and whether there's any possibility that high-level officials are compromised, because, again, we're defending our democracy," she said. "We can't afford to have a foreign, adversarial nation messing around in our elections."

Baldwin was at Marshfield Clinic in Weston to discuss rural maternity care.

THREE LAKES - Hundreds of thousands of Germans immigrated to the badger state in the 19th century. On Saturday, people in the Northwoods raised their glasses to Wisconsin's German heritage.

Hundreds of people came to Three Lakes for the town's 4th annual Oktoberfest celebration.

The event featured traditional music, dancing, games and even a sauerkraut eating competition. And of course, there was plenty of good food and beer.

"We have a lot of heritage here," said event organizer Heather Biro. "It gives people the exposure to see there are some ethnic restaurants here in the Northwoods. Everything is made from scratch and they get to have a little taste of it today."
