GOP gubernatorial primary adds another high-profile candidate

by | Apr 25, 2022 | Legislative Update Blog, State Issue | 0 comments

Businessman Tim Michels today launched his candidacy for Governor, adding his name to a crowded Aug. 9 GOP primary ballot that will select the nominee to oppose incumbent Democratic Gov. Tony Evers in the Nov. 8 election.

Evers is seeking a second term and observers say this fall’s Wisconsin governor’s race will be among the most hotly contested in the nation.

Michels, co-owner of Michels Corp., a family-owned energy and infrastructure construction business, is the latest entry into the race. He joins former Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, Marine Corps veteran Kevin Nicholson, and state Rep. Timothy Ramthun (R-Campbellsport) on the Repblican ticket.  Ramthun is a Kewauskum school board member.
