Funny. Of course, I would like a competent, proactive, conservative governor. I couldn’t care less about their gender, race, ethnicity, disability, or hair color. We have a grey man now and he’s a disaster.
Evers also at the event said he wants to see a woman Wisconsin governor, but only after he’s done serving.
While Evers didn’t mention former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, the only woman gubernatorial candidate in the race so far, he said Wisconsin is not short on strong, qualified women who could be the state’s next leader.
“I’m hopeful after my days are done as governor of the state of Wisconsin that we have a candidate that will take that mantle, Republican or Democrat,” he said. “Let’s make it happen.”
Kleefisch, who was not at the event, took to Twitter to respond to the guv’s call.
She said: “Happy to make this dream come true!”
