• A native of Plymouth, Wisconsin, former public school educator, husband, father of three and grandfather of nine, Tony Evers is running for re-election as Wisconsin Governor. During his first term, Gov. Evers cut income taxes by 15% for middle class families, led the investment of nearly $1 billion to support Wisconsin's small businesses, farms and workers, and stood with Wisconsinites by stopping numerous extreme policies designed to divide people from becoming law. Based on his belief that what's best for our kids is what's best for our state, Gov. Evers has provided strong and steady leadership for Wisconsinites and continued to reach across the aisle to find solutions to the issues most important to Wisconsinites, like addressing rising costs and making sure Wisconsin's public schools have the resources they need to provide a high-quality education to our kids. Throughout his first term, Gov. Evers has prioritized equality and inclusion and taken steps to show all Wisconsinites they are welcome in our state, including being the first Wisconsin governor to raise the LGBT pride flag over the State Capitol. Gov. Evers believes Wisconsin women should be able to make their own reproductive decisions, which is why he called a special session to overturn Wisconsin's 1849 abortion ban. His opponent is Republican Tim Michels, who is endorsed by an extreme right wing group that supports Wisconsin's criminal abortion ban, prohibiting abortion even in cases of rape or incest. Evers is the progressive choice in this race.

Gage-Michaels promises to fight for improved access to healthcare particularly for women, stand up for reproductive rights, expand broadband access for all, and provide adequate funding for public schools. She will work to ensure every community in Northeast Wisconsin has clean water and to bring jobs and resources back into our communities.

Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below State Assembly races on your ballot.

Incumbent Ron Tusler has cast consistently anti-healthcare, anti-public education, anti-worker, and anti-middle class votes.

Tusler is also endorsed by a right wing group that wants to outlaw abortion, and has consistently supported legislation that limits access to reproductive care. There is no progressive choice in this race.

  • Shawano County board supervisor and Village of Wittenberg president William Switalla promises to be a positive change for the 6th Assembly District. A small business owner and father of seven, Switalla believes that government is about good ideas, not about political parties. Switalla believes in making sure our public schools are strong and financially healthy, that workers are paid a fair wage, and that our roads and infrastructure are repaired and safe. Switalla faces Republican candidate Peter Schmidt of Bonduel, who was charged with a felony for choking a worker on his family farm in 2019 and was later convicted of criminal trespassing. Schmidt wants to gut gun safety laws by prohibiting Wisconsin from enforcing federal gun laws, wants to eliminate gun-free zones, believes the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump, and says he will oppose all efforts to repeal Wisconsin's criminal abortion ban. Also running as a write-in candidate is Dean Martin Neubert, who is backed by local Republican Party groups as well as an extreme rightwing organization that wants to ban all abortions without exception, even when the pregnant person's life is at risk. Switalla is the more progressive choice in this race.
