La Crosse, WI (WXOW) Democratic candidate for Governor Tony Evers is now traveling with a security detail from the State Patrol following a security incident of some kind last weekend.
Evers campaigned in La Crosse on Wednesday and declined comment on the issue, or on the security protections.
Scott Walker, as do most Governors, already receives protection from a State Patrol security detail.
Meanwhile, Evers along with running mate Mandela Barnes focused on education today. The pair were on a school bus tour around the state.
Speaking at a stop at UW-La Crosse, Evers said, “People in Wisconsin want solutions. That’s what Mandela and I do. We’re pragmatists, we solve problems. We’re going to make sure our roads are fixed. Real simple things that people in Wisconsin don’t expect Republicans and Democrats to be fighting about.”
The Evers tour for change tour brought Evers to Dodgeville, Platteville and Stoddard in addition to La Crosse.
The latest Marquette poll shows Evers and Scott Walker in a dead heat with less than one week before the election.
