SOUTH MILWAUKEE - As 14 Democrats remain in Illinois, their constituents are taking sides.
A large portion of Milwaukee County is represented by four democrats who are hiding out in Illinois, Senators Lena Taylor, Spencer Coggs, Tim Carpenter and Chris Larson.
TODAYS TMJ4 traveled to South Milwaukee in the heart of Larson's district to find out what the people he represents are saying about his decision to flee the state.
At the AMF Bowling Alley in South Milwaukee, league night means a packed crowd, full of the people who elected Sen. Chris Larson.
Opinions on the senator's actions are firm and divided.
Cindy Skibinski, a teacher, is grateful for Larson's decision to remain in Illinois.
Oak Creek resident Phil Mussa wants his senator back in Madison.
"I think he should be back here to get his job done. That's what I think. I don't think it's right that they run," he said.
One thing both sides agree on, they will vote based on how their senator behaved during the budget battle.
