Michels Enters Race For Governor

Another Republican enters the race for Wisconsin governor.

Wealthy Waukesha pipeline construction executive Tim Michels filed paperwork on Friday.

He’ll join former lieutenant governor Rebecca Kleefisch, consultant and Marine veteran Kevin Nicholson and state Representative Tim Ramthun in the August Republican primary.

The winner will advance to oppose incumbent Democrat, Governor Tony Evers. Michels’ sole previous electoral experience was a 2004 loss to then U.S. Senator Russ Feingold.
