In Wisconsin on Tuesday, Republican voters picked Trump-endorsed candidate Tim Michels to represent their party in November’s challenge to incumbent Democrat Governor Tony Evers.
At his primary night party, Michels claimed victory and said “I’d like to thank President Trump for his support and his endorsement,” adding “he knows that we need new leadership in Madison and he sees a lot of similarities in me.”
Michels beat out Pence-endorsed candidate Rebecca Kleefisch, the former Wisconsin Lt. Governor who served with Scott Walker and survived Democrats’ 2012 recall attempt. In addition to Walker’s endorsement, she had the backing of former Trump administration U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). more here
