Clearly Evers feels comfortable about winning the primary election and has begun his pivot to the general election.
Eau Claire (WQOW) – We are less than one month away from the fall primary, and Tuesday, the leading Marquette Poll’s leading Democrat in the governor’s race stopped by the News 18 studio.
Tony Evers was the only Democrat to crack double-digits in the poll, with 31 percent of support. However, 38 percent of those polled are still undecided in the race.
Many Democrats are campaigning against the Foxconn deal. Recently, the company announced it was opening two locations in downtown Eau Claire.
Tuesday, Evers said, if elected, he will not advocate for ending the deal, but he does plan to change the terms.
“What we have to do is make sure that money that’s been invested is invested wisely,” Evers said. “We have to make sure that all the state benefits from Foxconn. We have to hold their feet to the fire on all sorts of issues that, frankly, Scott Walker walked away on. Environmental issues, pay issues, making sure that there is good paying jobs for people.”
