Mary Burke Has Another Challenger In Democratic Gubernatorial Primary Featured

On Monday, Wisconsin State Representative Brett Hulsey announced his intention to run for Wisconsin Governor, effectively leading to yet another challenge of fellow Democrat Mary Burke in a primary, who already has two other opponents. 

 

According to his official announcement, Hulsey claims that Governor Scott Walker's "Reign of Error" made Wisconsin "second in the nation in job loss and 35th in job creation" and as such, he is planning on running for governor. His plan is reportedly to include the "reinvestment of $2.1 billion to create clean energy jobs, increase job training, public school, UW system, and technical college investment, reverses the Walker tax increases on working families and senior citizens, saves babies, protects Wisconsinites from strip mining, and creates a Penokee Hills State Park instead of the world’s largest strip mine."

 

Top priority for the would-be governor? 

 

"As a former union vice president, I will make restoring worker safety, rights and bargained a top priority," Hulsey said. "We should restore worker rights and unnecessary pay cuts immediately to help jump start our economy and create safer workplaces."

 

While Hulsey is looking toward a bright political future, his political past has not always been free of controversy. The Madison Democrat used campaign finances to pay for an old convertible and to register for a triathlon. In 2012, he pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge, and an aide claim to be 'terrified around him because of his behavior'.
