And this in nearly the last person we would consider for governor of Wisconsin:
Less than a year into Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ first term, the Republican field to challenge him is already shaping up.
State Sen. Chris Kapenga is the latest Republican to openly consider running for governor in 2022, joining former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and Delafield businessman Kevin Nicholson as potential contenders.
“There’s nothing getting done and it’s a little bit frustrating,” Kapenga said in an interview about the idea of running against Evers in 2022. “Obviously the Legislature and the governor, when you’re in different parties, there’s not as much that can be done … but I don’t see him jumping in and trying to govern it better.”emphasis mine
That last quote is really something, given the Republicans’ attempts… from immediately after the election last November before Governor Evers even took office to this very moment…to stifle and prevent enacting anything related to the new governor’s initiatives.
