DULUTH, MN. (KBJR) - -- Wisconsin’s governor made a stop in the Twin Ports Friday.

Gov. Tony Evers spoke at Empire Coffee in Superior.

It was part of a statewide tour to kick off Gov. Evers general election campaign, help some fellow candidates, and meet with grassroot supporters.

During his speech, Evers highlighted some of the accomplishments he said he’s made during his time in office.

He said he’s been able to cut middle-class income taxes by 15%, increase funding for schools, and show support for small businesses and family farms.

According to Evers, focusing on what he’s done while in office will help him win another term.

“Whether it’s fixing the roads, supporting our public schools, or making a good effort around health care in the state of Wisconsin. All those things that I promised the people of Wisconsin I’d be working on, that’s where I’m gonna be focusing my efforts,” Evers said.

Evers was joined by some fellow democrat candidates including Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kahl, Laura Gapske, and Sara Rodriguez, who recently won the Democratic Primary for lieutenant governor of Wisconsin.

Evers will be running against businessman Tim Michels in the general election this fall.

Michels beat out several candidates including former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch in the GOP primary.

He received an endorsement from former President Donald Trump ahead of Tuesday’s primary and thanked him in his primary victory speech.

“I’d like to thank President Trump for his support, for his endorsement. It was a tremendous validation of our meteoric rise in this campaign. He knows we need new leadership in Madison.”

Michels is a businessman who co-owns the Michels corporation in Brownsville, Wisconsin.

The general election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022.
