Democratic Lt. Gov. candidate makes stop in Wausau


The Democratic Lieutenant Governor candidate made a stop in Wausau on Wednesday afternoon.

Mahlon Mitchell stopped at Vino Latte to speak with supporters -- appearing with Democratic State Senate candidate Donna Seidel. Mitchell said his top three priorities include jobs, education and poverty -- things he thinks could be improved if he and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett are elected next week.

"I'm not naive enough to think that on June 6th everybody's going to sing Kumbaya but with Barrett and Mitchell winning, we get back on the right track and we learn how to compromise again and to talk about problems individually but come together collectively," said Mitchell. "Getting our message out is obviously key. The Barrett and Mitchell message is strong and that is one of bringing our state back to where it should be."

Republican Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch is running against Mitchell in next week's recall election. She and Governor Scott Walker have been serving together since last year.
