Michels Responds To Residency Claims

Republican candidate for governor Tim Michels says he’s a bona fide Wisconsin resident who pays his taxes here.

“I’ve always paid Wisconsin taxes. I’ve always spent 183 days in Wisconsin, usually many, many more days.”

Michels (on WISN’s Dan O’Donnell show Monday) responded to a report from the conservative website Wisconsin Right Now, which found Michels owns residences in New York City and Connecticut, and that his kids graduated from East Coast high schools. Michels says he’s also voted in Wisconsin for past decade.
