MILWAUKEE (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers is telling Democrats at the party’s state convention to expect robust primaries next year but to remember everyone’s on the same team when the elections are over.
Wisconsin is expected to be a key battleground state in the presidential race next year. Nearly two dozen Democrats are currently running for the chance to take on Donald Trump. The party plans to hold its national convention next summer in Milwaukee.
Evers delivered the keynote address at the state party’s convention Saturday night in Milwaukee. He said to expect “spirited and robust” primaries next year, which means more people will be out talking about issues Democrats care about. But he says the party can’t let the races “devolve into divisiveness.”
