mahlon_mitchell"Scott Walker’s cronies are harassing me and my voters -- and I’m fighting back!" says Gubernatorial candidate.


With less than 2 weeks until Election Day, my team and I are hard at work! We were knocking doors the other day and ran into a Republican tracker who follows me around everywhere harassing me, my team, and our voters.

This type of behavior has no place in our politics -- so I stood up and spoke out.

I promise to stand up to Scott Walker and his political machine every step of the way -- as your candidate, and as your governor.

Of course, Scott Walker is now trying to spin this back on me. But his fake outrage is as out of touch as his priorities. As a 20 year firefighter, I don’t need lessons on courage from a governor who has cowered away from the needs of Wisconsinites, like a fully funded public education system, infrastructure investment, affordable healthcare and living wages.

If Scott Walker wanted to hear from me or Wisconsin voters, he would join us out in the community. Instead, he’s sending his staffer to try to intimidate Wisconsin voters.

If you’re ready for a governor who will fight for you and not just take orders from foreign corporations and a handful of billionaires, then make a contribution to our campaign today.

I’m in this fight for you. And I won’t back down. #TogetherWeRise

tony_eversEndorsements come within a week of two polls announcing Evers with healthy lead over Governor Scott Walker.


MADISON – State Superintendent Tony Evers is proud to announce the endorsements of State Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton), State Senator Janis Ringhand (D-Evansville) and State Senator Bob Wirch (D-Somers) for Evers’ campaign for Governor. These come within a week of two polls announcing Evers with healthy leads over both Governor Scott Walker and the democratic primary field.

jon-erpenbach“Potholes are consuming our roads and our healthcare costs are skyrocketing – we have to get back to basics as a state. Four more years of Scott Walker will just be more of the same and Wisconsinites will again be left holding the bag. I’m supporting Tony Evers because we need a leader that is focused on solving our problems, not picking political fights,” Erpenbach said.

“Tony Evers is the only candidate who can beat Scott Walker. I applaud him for being the first candidate to call for a clean campaign pledge in the Democratic primary. As we enter the final two weeks, I hope that all candidates and their supporters follow Tony’s lead and run strong, positive campaigns,” said Ringhand. “I’m supporting Tony because he will bring needed commonsense to the Governor’s office. It’s time for a change.”

Evers has already been endorsed by State Senator Mark Miller, State Representative Dana Wachs, State Representative Sondy Pope, State Representative Don Vruwink, State Representative Daniel Riemer, and State Representative Tod Ohnstad.

“Local control has been absolutely decimated under Scott Walker’s watch. Instead of trusting our local elected officials to make the decisions that are best for our communities, Gov. Walker has decided that he knows better. It’s time for us to return power to the people of Wisconsin and Tony Evers will do just that,” said Sen. Wirch.
