Placeholder Image
By Scott Bauer and Todd Richmond Associated Press MADISON - Wisconsin Democrats reshuffled their Senate leadership on Tuesday, with a state senator from La Crosse poised to take over as minority leader after Republicans increased their majority in last week's election. Sen. Chris Larson, Democratic Senate minority leader the past two years, decided to bow out of the race after Sen. Jennifer Shilling, of La Crosse, announced she was challenging him. Larson declined to say whether he had enough support to win in the vote scheduled for Wednesday, saying his decision was based on wanting to spend more time with his family.
