Democratic candidates for governor campaign in Tomahawk

By  | 

TOMAHAWK, Wis. (WEAU)-- A trio of Democratic candidates for governor were in Tomahawk Sunday afternoon for the Lincoln County Democratic party picnic. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers leads the field in the polls heading into Tuesday's primary. Also in attendance, State Senator Kathleen Vinehout and Josh Pade. Both Evers and Vinehout believe they have the credentials to beat Walker come November.

Vinehout says, "Fortunately the primary has been mostly positive, and very much about issues. So folks that have been listening have heard a lot of different ideas, they've heard from a lot of different candidates. I very much believe that this a job interview, you want the best person for the job, you need to know whether this person can do the job."

Evers adds, "This is a time when Wisconsinites can actually take back their state. And I think is a very critical election, certainly I believe I've made a case for a good number of people, polls are showing me in a good position not only against the Democratic field but against Scott Walker. I believe I'm that candidate to win the race next November."
