Democratic challenger demonstrates wide grassroots support as the first gubernatorial candidate to make the ballot
(Madison) – In a showing of strong momentum, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Matt Flynn today became the first to submit the required signatures to appear on the ballot in 2018. Flynn submitted 4,000 signatures, twice the required number, from Wisconsinites in 61 counties.
“I want to thank the thousands of Wisconsinites who nominated this campaign,” said Flynn. “After eight years of stagnant wages and growing corruption, Wisconsin is ready for a change. Today’s filing shows the strength of our grassroots movement to lead Wisconsin Forward again.”
