Wisconsin’s governor took to a virtual convention put on by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin on Saturday to confirm his plans for 2022. Governor Tony Evers stated, “Wisconsin, I’m in. I’m running for re-election.” He went on to list key topics in his bounceback plan, mentioning job creation, fixing infrastructure, supporting small businesses, and widening access to quality healthcare.
A press release from the governor’s office stated, “Governor Evers acknowledged that there is more work to do as we ensure Wisconsin bounces back stronger than before. His current budget continues to improve state investment in infrastructure, public education, and broadband expansion. He is also committed to passing an expansion of BadgerCare, which would expand coverage to tens of thousands of Wisconsinites while saving state taxpayers $1.6 billion.” Evers is currently in his first term as Governor.
