UPDATE: Statement expected soon on Wausau Labor Day parade

Posted:

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Wausau Labor Day parade organizers say they plan to make a statement in the next few hours on whether they'll allow Republicans to participate.

That's according to Randy Radtke, chairman of the Marathon County Labor Council.

Newsline 9 broke the news last week that labor leaders banned Republicans from walking in the annual parade. On Monday, Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple said the city will not support a parade that does not include both parties.
