State Superintendent Tony Evers will face Scott Walker in the November 6 election for Wisconsin governor. Evers handily won the eight-candidate Democratic Primary August 14.
In an email to supporters after winning the nomination, Evers said:
"This race is a choice between 4 more years of our current governor, or a new governor focused on making decisions in the best interest of real Wisconsin families - who deserve access to good healthcare, safe roads and high quality public education."
In other Primary Election races:
