Gubernatorial candidate Mahlon Mitchell campaigns in Altoona

Altoona (WQOW) – Gubernatorial candidate Mahlon Mitchell stopped in Altoona Friday evening for a meet and greet.

Mitchell spoke to locals at Modicum Brewing Company in Altoona as a part of his 20 city ‘Badger State Beer Tour’. He discussed education, unemployment rates and health care.

News 18 asked Mitchell about the recent Marquette Poll results, where he was selected 5th among Democratic voters.

"Well there’s no doubt that Evers has the most name ID, but we’re looking at getting our message out," said Mitchell. "Right now we’re where the rubber meets the road so to speak, last month or so of the campaign. And we feel good about our chances, we feel good about where we’re at. And we’re going to continue to make sure that our message is out there. The only poll I care about is the one on August 14, and that’s making sure we win."

The primary in August will determine which Democrat will run against Governor Scott Walker in November.
