Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Kleefisch is touting endorsements by more than “100 local Wisconsin current and former elected officials from across the state.”
The local supporters include individuals that have held various positions: mayors, county board supervisors, school board members, city councilmen, and other officials.
“Our campaign to take back Wisconsin is growing every day,” Rebecca Kleefisch said. “I’m honored to have the endorsement of more than 100 local elected officials from across Wisconsin who were concerned about the direction of our state and decided to fight back. Together this fall, we will beat Tony Evers and take back our economy, our streets, and our government.”
The former lieutenant governor has reeled in a string of state-focused endorsements, including former Governor Scott Walker and Congressman Tom Tiffany.
However, despite the local backers, Kleefisch failed to gain the endorsement of one individual who may play a significant role among GOP voters: former President Donald Trump. He opted to support businessman Tim Michels.
“Tim Michels is the best candidate to deliver meaningful solutions to these problems, and he will produce jobs like no one else can even imagine. Tim is an America First Conservative who Supports our Second Amendment, Honors our Brave Law Enforcement and First Responders, and Stands Strongly against the Woke Mob trying to destroy our Country,” Trump said in his endorsement. “Tim Michels has my Complete and Total Endorsement. If Wisconsin has the wisdom to make Tim their next governor, it will have unprecedented success!”
Recently polling has placed Kleefisch and Michels as the frontrunners in the race. One survey placed the businessman statistically tied with the former Lieutenant Governor.
The winner of the GOP primary will take on Democrat Governor Tony Evers in November, a top target for Republicans.
