Mandela Barnes Campaigns at UW- Eau Claire

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire (WQOW) — Two Democrats vying for Governor and Lt. Governor spent the day traveling to campaign together, and took everyone along for the ride.

Mandela Barnes was in Eau Claire on Tuesday, but before he made his way here, he and Tony Evers documented their ride from Appleton to Green Bay.

Barnes, who is running against Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, said Governor Scott Walker is out of touch after eight years in office.

“We did a Facebook live today, Tony Evers and I to highlight Governor Walkers long distant trip in the air from Appleton to Green Bay which is 24 miles so we drove it just to show that Governor Walker hasn’t always been responsible with tax payer dollars,” Barnes said. “We probably made the trip in all actuality quicker than the plane may have taken.”

Barnes said it was important for him to make a stop in Eau Claire to talk with students about what’s at stake with this election. He said he wants students to understand his vision for Wisconsin because they are the future.

Weather Outlook: Finally! More sunshine this weekend

The fog and clouds lifted late Friday morning, and that meant the sun finally shined brightly for much of the day. While it doesn’t have a lot of power this time of year given we’re only a week away from the winter solstice, it still helped warm us into the mid 30s.
