Michels Picks Up Endorsement From Thompson

Tim Michels has picked up another endorsement in his campaign for Wisconsin governor.

Former Republican governor Tommy Thompson has endorsed the pipeline construction company executive, who already has the endorsement of former President Donald Trump.

Republican candidate Rebecca Kleefisch has the endorsement of former Governor Scott Walker, in whose administration she served as lieutenant governor, as well as Assembly Speaker Robin Vos.

Michaels and Kleefisch will face off in the August Republican primary, along with State Representative Timothy Ranthum. The winner advances to the November general election to face incumbent Democratic Governor Tony Evers.
