Doyle Creates Faith-based Office

Governor Jim Doyle has made a decision that has drawn furrowed brows from both sides of the political spectrum.

Doyle announced yesterday that he would create a faith-based office to fight poverty. The governor says faith-based groups can do a lot of things the state can't.

The new office will primarily focus on helping organizations receive information, assistance and referrals. The campaign of Republican challenger Mark Green says the governor is copying his ideas.

The co-founder of the group Freedom From Religion said she believes Doyle is trying to draw Republican support for November. A recent poll put Green ahead of Governor Doyle by one percentage point.
