Trump Is Handed Another Win

Trump endorsed construction executive Tim Michels wins the Republican nomination for governor in Wisconsin. He will now face incumbent Democrat Governor Tony Evers in November.

Michels, who was endorsed by Donald Trump, beat out the two front runners: former Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, as well as State Assemblyman Tim Ramthun.

With 75% of the vote in the race was called by the Associated Press at 10:35 p.m CDT. Michels was in the lead by over 20,000 votes with 47% of the vote. Kleefisch with 43% came in second, and Ramthun took third with 5.5%.

Michels performed strongly around the state, especially in rural areas, while Kleefisch generally did better in more suburban areas. However, Michels remained competitive in suburban areas like Dane and Milwaukee counties.

“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 in an interview last month.

Former President Donald Trump and former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson both endorsed Michels. While Kleefisch, his top rival, brought in endorsements from former Governor Scott Walker, former Vice President Mike Pence, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

“Wisconsin needs a Governor who will Stop Inflation, Uphold the Rule of Law, strengthen our Borders (we had the strongest borders in history just two years ago, now we have the weakest!) and End the well-documented Fraud in our Elections,” Trump said in his endorsement. “Tim is an America First Conservative who Supports our Second Amendment, Honors our Brave Law Enforcement and First Responders, and Stands Strongly against the Woke Mob trying to destroy our Country.”

Michels served in the Army for 12 years achieving the rank of major before leaving the military to start his own business. The company that he runs, Michel’s Corporation, currently employs around 8,000 people. Michels said he was honored to receive the former president’s endorsement.

“People are tired with politics as usual, tired of career politicians, they want an outsider, they want a businessman,” Michels told The Daily Wire. “That’s what I bring to this race.”

Throughout the campaign, Michels has said that he will turn Madison “upside down.” He promises to decrease the influence of lobbying on state politics, uphold Wisconsin’s 1849 abortion ban, end “unmanned ballot boxes,” and end the Wisconsin Election Commission. At a debate last month, he also said that he would support paid family leave, a unique policy for a Republican politician.

Another major component of his campaign is education reform and ensuring that Critical Race Theory is not taught in Wisconsin schools.

The November election is expected to be tight. The governor’s race has been labeled as a “toss-up” by the Cook Political Report.
