Ten candidates remain in the crowded Democratic field for the Wisconsin governor’s race with many traveling to Door County weeks before the August primary. Kelda Roys, Matt Flynn, Paul Soglin, Kathleen Vinehout are among the current hopefuls who have visited Door County for different events this year, while Tony Evers, Mahlon Mitchell, Josh Pade, Dave Heaster, Mike McCabe, and Ramona Whiteaker round out the field looking to face Governor Scott Walker in November. Door County Democratic Party chairperson Will Gregory says it is a dream field for progressives with a focus on a couple key issues.
Gregory says whoever gets out of the August 14 primary will get the organization’s full support. The Door County Democratic Party will host their annual picnic on August 23.
