Trump announces new Wisconsin women coalition


MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Donald Trump's new Wisconsin women coalition includes some of the most powerful politicians in the state, and two who were caught up in a highly publicized investigation into Gov. Scott Walker's county office.

The unveiling of the statewide group Wednesday comes as polls show Trump trailing Democrat Hillary Clinton overall in Wisconsin and among women.

Former Lt. Gov. Margaret Farrow, state Senate President Mary Lazich and Sen. Alberta Darling, co-chair of the Legislature's budget committee, top the coalition.

Also part of the group is Darlene Wink, who was convicted of two misdemeanors for doing work on Walker's gubernatorial campaign while at work in his Milwaukee County executive's office.

Another coalition member, Rose Ann Dieck, was granted immunity to testify as part of that John Doe probe.
