Rebecca Kleefisch Announces Run for Governor

Here we go!

In an expected move, former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch on Thursday formally announced her gubernatorial bid for 2022.


The Republican and former TV news anchor, who spent eight years in office with former Gov. Scott Walker, is expected to face a contested GOP primary next fall, but Kleefisch made clear in an announcement video released Thursday that her sights are already set on unseating Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, who is seeking a second term after defeating Walker in 2018.

“I am running because I have two kids who I want to choose Wisconsin to live their American dreams and one day raise families here,” Kleefisch said in a statement. “But that is only possible if we start putting the people first. We need safe communities, great education with real choice and real standards, and good-paying jobs.”

I like Kleefisch a lot. She’s smart, passionate, articulate, unapologetically conservative, and works hard. She’s everything that Evers isn’t.

    So, Kevin Nicholson Is thinking about playing his two-faced fraud game again, eh? Piece of advice: don’t bother.

    Meanwhile, the Johnson vs. Dems senate race is shaping up nicely….

    “A Milwaukee alderwoman and Democratic Senate candidate was charged Tuesday for allegedly misusing thousands of dollars in campaign funds and fraudulently requesting travel reimbursements from the city. A criminal complaint charging Chantia Lewis with four felony counts and one misdemeanor accused her of misappropriating campaign dollars by depositing them into her personal accounts and using them to pay for personal expenses. “

    You can’t make this up…

    “… Lewis, who is a pastor,…”

    True, MKE prosecutors could be trying to cull the Dem field against nEvers buddy Mandela (or Bucks homeboy Lasry?). Still fun to watch.
