Democrats stay focused on Walker, not each other

Madison (AP) — Democratic candidates for governor are staying unified in opposing Republican Gov. Scott Walker and not targeting one another in a debate that comes just six days before the primary election.

Seven of the eight Democratic candidates gathered for the forum Wednesday in Madison to make their closing arguments to voters.

State superintendent and front-runner Tony Evers took a swipe at Walker saying he has no intention of visiting a prison in Wisconsin. Evers says as leader of the state the governor has a responsibility to visit the prisons.

Former state Rep. Kelda Roys pitched herself as the best candidate to beat Walker, saying she can appeal to married suburban Milwaukee women who care about reducing gun violence and protecting reproductive rights.

Only state firefighter union leader Mahlon Mitchell did not attend. He was in Seattle for a union meeting.

Thankfully, we’ve been able to catch up on clearing the snow, and are close to getting back in the swing of things. Just as we settle down, however, we return back to an active weather pattern that will bring several chances for more accumulating snow over the next couple of weeks.
