On Wednesday, Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch officially turned in the signatures they needed to secure a spot in the primary.
Governor Walker’s campaign announced that they collected more than 12,000 nomination signatures from all 72 Wisconsin Counties and Lt. Governor Kleefisch collected nearly 7,500 signatures.
Lt. Gov. Kleefisch dropped off the signatures at the elections commission Wednesday morning and said they collected so many signatures to get the Republican voters excited about participating in the midterms.
