McCoshen, Ross Production Will Host Star-Studded Guests to Answer the Question: ‘Who Will Win Wisconsin’s Electoral College Votes in 2020?’
Madison, WI – Political strategists and television pundits Democrat Scot Ross and Republican Bill McCoshen are bringing their 50 years of political experience to a new podcast, “WIN2020 With McCoshen and Ross.” The show will feature the duo talking politics with a new guest each episode to figure which party will win Wisconsin’s ten Electoral College votes and how they will do it.
“Wisconsin is going to decide the 2020 presidential election,” said McCoshen, former Chief of Staff to four-term Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson, “WIN2020 is going to go deep behind the scenes to figure out what each political party will have to do to win here and 2020 and who’s going to do it.”
“Wisconsin has been the closest state in the three most competitive presidential races in the last generation and 2020 will be no different,” said Democrat Scot Ross, former Executive Director of One Wisconsin Now. “WIN2020 will be a podcast for political veterans, experts, neophytes, nerds and armchair quarterbacks from both parties.”
McCoshen and Ross have been teaming up on political punditry for the last for years as a regular pair on NBC 15 in Madison’s “Unspun” segment with Leah Mills, winning the 2018 Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Best Editorial/Commentary award, as well as Wisconsin Public Television’s “Here and Now” with Frederica Freyberg and the statewide “Capital City Sunday” show with Emilee Fannon.
