Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.5

Construction executive Tim Michels has won the Republican nomination for governor in Wisconsin and will face incumbent Democrat Governor Tony Evers in November. Michels, who was endorsed by President Donald Trump, beat out former Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, as well as State Assemblyman Tim Ramthun. “I am running for governor because I am very concerned about the direction that the country is heading and extremely concerned about the lack of leadership from Governor Evers here in Wisconsin,” Michels told The Daily Wire last month when asked why he was running for governor.
