DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will be at the Milwaukee County Courthouse early this morning. Not for a press conference. This isn't tied to any political scandal.

Originally published on Wed January 8, 2014 7:12 am

Hell, Michigan is due to warm up today to a balmy high of 16 degrees.
