A Democratic primary is shaping up for Wisconsin governor. So far, four Democrats have declared their intention to run.
This week, state Rep. Brett Hulsey of Madison announced his intention to challenge Trek Executive Mary Burke in August.
She’s been viewed as the party front runner. Two political newcomers have also tossed their hats into the ring – Marcia Mercedes Perkins and Hariprasad Trivedi.
Rep. Hulsey’s entrance into the Democratic chase surprised UW-Stevens Point Political Science Professor Dennis Riley. He assumed Mary Burke would not have a significant primary challenger.
