Evers tops field in the Democratic Party partisan primary race for governor
And now there is one. Yesterday, Tony Evers, who was our headliner last month at the July Green Lake Co. Dems & Friends meeting, has emerged as the guy to take down Scott Walker.
Evers, who had been favored to win the eight-person partisan primary election, came away with 224,544 or 41.7 percent of the votes. Mahlon Mitchell was second with 88,090 or 16.4 percent. Kelda Roys was third with 68,965 or 12.8 percent.
In all, 537,840 votes were cast in the Democratic Party partisan primary on Aug. 14.
