$2.5 million. that's why he says they are so dependent upon the w tax fee to pass. >> the county finance committee will vote on that $30 wheel tax proposal tomorrow morning. >> shannon: if approved, it will be part of the county project. the full board will don't want it next week. >> it is almost over, just one more week until election day. >> shannon: donald trump expected to continue attacks on hillary clinton, on the latest fbi tonight, even in eau claire. the clinton campaign is playing defense, questioning the fbi's timing. >> today clinton's running mate called wisconsin absolutely key to a hillary clinton victory next tuesday. kaine speaking go live at a rally right now. let's listen in. >> we have no state can top us with tammy baldwin and russ feingold. do everything you can to elect russ. i was very, very glad to visit
