CNN correspondent Ted Rollins reporting from Madison, WI. Even though the deadline to clear the capitol has passed, law enforcement's strategy is going to be to ask the protesters to leave voluntarily. Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs told CNN "People are going to have to try real hard to get arrested. We don't want anybody arrested and we're willing to spend the night here and try to convince people to leave, let us clean it, this capitol building and then come back tomorrow."
The Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin's Mahlon Mitchell explained why he and his fellow union members were standing in solidarity with the other protesters and remain in the capitol rotunda even though the deadline had passed.
