MADISON, Wis. — Yesterday, Gov. Tony Evers joined grassroots volunteers in Madison, Waukesha, Milwaukee, and Green Bay as part of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s One Year to Win Weekend of Action.

During Gov. Evers’ first term, he has brought common-sense leadership and Wisconsin values back to the governor’s office. Gov. Evers has a strong record of getting things done for Wisconsinites, including cutting taxes for the middle class by 15 percent, restoring the state’s funding commitment to public schools, making healthcare more affordable, expanding broadband access, and supporting small businesses and family farms.

But his work isn’t finished — and that’s why Gov. Evers is running for re-election, to continue moving our state forward. Whether it’s voting rights, access to healthcare, or funding public education — the stakes are high in Wisconsin.

With just one year left until Election Day, Gov. Evers highlighted the importance of grassroots work as volunteers headed out to speak with fellow Wisconsinites about the issues that matter most to them. In between stops, Gov. Evers called organizers across the state and thanked them for their hard work.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers kicked off his re-election campaign Saturday, Nov. 6, at an event in Milwaukee.

The events are organized as part of a statewide effort by Wisconsin Democrats to rally voters for the 2022 midterm election.

While speaking to voters, Evers touted his pandemic response and his administration’s efforts to provide broadband to 300,000 households.

“This is a real important race for a number of reasons,” Evers said. “Do I have a lot of unfinished business that I know you’ve expected? Hell yes, but at the end of the day, having me in office is going to prevent democracy from getting frittered away.”

Evers also spoke to how he vetoed a number of efforts by State Republicans on elections and abortion access.
