Democratic Wisconsin Gov. Evers Launches Bid for Second Term
Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers is making it official, announcing his bid for a second term in the battleground state where he stands as a Democratic block to the Republican-controlled state Legislature.
Evers told The Associated Press in an interview that he decided to run again because he has unfinished business and needs to remain a check on Republicans through his veto powers.
Evers announced his plans during the Wisconsin Democratic Convention, which was held virtually Saturday for a second year in a row.
The first three and a half years of Evers’ term have been marked both by clashes with the GOP-led Legislature.
Several Republicans are considering running against him.
