November 8 election nearing

Governor’s Race

The 2022 Wisconsin gubernatorial election will take place on November 8, 2022, to elect the governor of Wisconsin. Incumbent Democratic Governor Tony Evers will seek a second term in office. As Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes is running for the U.S. Senate in 2022, a new running mate, Sara Rodriguez, was nominated in the partisan primary. Barnes is the second lieutenant governor to not run with the incumbent governor since the state constitution was amended in 1967. The partisan primary was held on August 9th, with businessman Tim Michels defeating former Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch in the Republican primary. Michels’ running mate is Roger Roth.
