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.
