The once-proud Senate leader now the biggest threat to education reform.
While legislators in Madison are preparing to dig into the massive State Budget, the State Senator from Neenah will instead focus his efforts on scuttling the sweeping education reforms proposed by Republican Governor Scott Walker.
Like a pit bull, he will growl and show his teeth and latch on to this one provision as his Raison d'être.
As we write today, he's likely to be successful.
Lost in the shuffle? Thousands of Wisconsin school children who really don't care about the petty infighting at the Capitol. They don't have the financial means Mike Ellis had bestowed on him. So they're stuck. Walker's expansion of the educational choice scholarship program offers them hope.
Ellis is intent on crushing that. Which makes him our loser of the day.
