Many eyes will be on the 2022 U.S. Senate election in Wisconsin, and though it’s not for a while, voters can get their first look next Sunday, June 13th, at candidates aiming to unseat Senator Ron Johnson. The Kewaunee County Democratic Party will be hosting a few of the aspiring Senators at Algoma’s Heritage Park from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. So far, three have confirmed they will make the trip. Those will include the state treasurer, Sarah Godlewski, Outagamie County’s executive Tom Nelson, and Gillian Batttino, a radiologist from Wausau. Candidates will speak to the crowd on hand and then get a chance to mingle with voters and answer their questions.
With the primary and election over a year away, candidates won’t be asked to address anything specific but rather introduce themselves, their campaign and touch on the issues they choose. It’s the first in-person event the Kewaunee County Democratic Party has held in a long time, and Kewaunee County Democratic Party Chair Mary-Ellen Dobbins wants people outside the county also to feel welcome.
Dobbins is looking forward to hearing all the candidates speak, as she says she thinks all three confirmed speakers would be better for the state than Senator Johnson.
