OUR ENDORSEMENT PROCESS

How we will choose our People’s Champion.

Over the last several months, the Wisconsin’s Choice campaign has gone all over the state, bringing voters together with candidates. Voters are enthusiastic about opportunities to directly engage with the candidates, discuss their platforms, and talk about the needs and concerns of voters. Wisconsin’s Choice is driving the conversation in the crowded Democratic field, helping voters discern between candidates and decide who will be the right person to represent the people of Wisconsin as governor.

In pursuit of our ultimate goal — restoring a government in Madison that represents the people– it’s time to narrow the field. We need to begin pushing candidates, and identify who the true leaders are.

That’s why we've began narrowing the field. So far we've hosted two votes, which has us down to just four candidates left in the running for title of People's Champion. Between now and our final vote, we’ll continue going around the state, host forums, and provide further opportunity for Wisconsinites to push the candidates on our key issues. The third and final round kicks off on July 16th and closes at 10PM on the night of July 19th.

This process is not just an internet vote. Electing a people’s champ will require all of us to roll up our sleeves and put the work in to take back Wisconsin. Each round’s vote will be designed to increase grassroots participation over the election and promote unity in the fall.
