Paul Soglin is the guy to beat now that he's back in the race for Madison mayor. But some strong challengers to the left of #GrumpyStache are hoping for an upset.

On this week's State Journal political podcast from the sensible center of Wisconsin politics, Milfred and Hands assess the field of seven candidates in the February primary for Madison mayor, and look ahead to the April election. Mitch Henck crashes the podcast, claiming Soglin could be in trouble.
