Kleefisch Offically Launches Campaign

Rebecca Kleefisch formally launched her campaign on Thursday, with a video in which she alleged that Democrat Tony Evers time in office has been “marked by failure and weakness.”

The former lieutenant governor is the first high-profile Republican to announce plans to challenge Evers in 2022. Others who have been considering a bid include lobbyist Bill McCoshen, state Representative John Macco and former U.S Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson.
